Fields Porsche Jacksonville Wraps Up and Mercedes-Benz Asheville Begins
The Fields Auto Group’s new construction Porsche dealership in Jacksonville, Florida was completed in mid-January 2021; two weeks ahead of ICI’s contracted construction schedule. The striking two-story, 41,000 square foot dealership is situated on a 5.85-acre site along Atlantic Boulevard, the city’s primary corridor for auto sales. The dealership interior boasts high design features synonymous with the Porsche brand coupled with well-appointed amenities associated with Fields Auto Group dealerships: an espresso bar with solid surface countertops, a full-service kitchen, and a luxurious waiting area; to name a few.
Exterior features include an impact-resistant frameless glass wall system and a customer car shade canopy. Additionally, ICI coordinated and installed new high-speed vehicle charging systems for the brand’s electric car models.
It is noteworthy that the dealership finished construction two weeks ahead of schedule given that the dealership groundbreaking coincided with the emergence of COVID-19. ICI’s on-site superintendent and project manager remained vigilant throughout construction mitigating supply chain disruptions and more importantly, keeping construction personnel safe.
Fields Mercedes-Benz Asheville
Upon completion of Fields Porsche Jacksonville, ICI began the auto group’s Mercedes-Benz dealership in Fletcher, North Carolina. The new construction 30,000 square foot dealership broke ground this month and has a targeted completion in early 2022. The Mercedes Benz dealership is currently housed within a shared facility along with Mazda and Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) brands. This multi-brand dealership will remain operational until it is relocated within the new building. Stand-out features of the new facility include electric vehicle charging stations for customers, inventory, and employees; a full-service kitchen/café with solid surface countertops and beechwood veneer cabinets, lounge area, and a retail sales boutique.
ICI has partnered with the Fields Auto Group for nearly 25 years on new construction dealerships, renovations and expansions of existing operational facilities, and dealer brand refreshes. Our work with Fields includes more than 30 dealership construction projects spanning the Midwest and Southeast.
