In continuation of an existing working relationship with The Exchange Automotive Group, ICI was awarded the construction of The Audi Exchange in St. Charles, Illinois. The project marks ICI’s fourth with the dealer and construction is currently underway with a target completion of fall 2021.
The ground up 26,000 square foot dealership will be constructed on a redeveloped 3.5-acre parcel. Sitework includes fully developed wet and dry utility services, lighting, landscaping, and a 500 foot-long decorative concrete retaining wall. Dealership features include a 20 foot tall angled curtainwall systems, ‘honeycomb’ aluminum panel systems, and a 120 foot-long rolled and sloped interior soffit with integral lighting elements. The ICI team possesses a familiarity with the Audi brand standards after completing the dealer’s Highland Park, Illinois location also.
ICI invested significant effort during a two-year preconstruction period as various construction scenarios were vetted. ICI developed cost and scheduling estimates on multiple versions of the dealership prior to construction commencing.
In addition to the construction of the new dealership, ICI will be extending Woodward Drive adjacent to the future dealership, widening Randall Road, and installing a new traffic signal at the corner of Randall and Woodward. The process entails close coordination with the City of St Charles and Kane County Division of Transportation.
