In continuation of an existing working relationship with The Exchange Automotive Group, ICI completed The Audi Exchange in St. Charles, Illinois in early August 2021. The project marks ICI’s fourth with the dealer.
The ground up, 26,000 square foot dealership was constructed on a redeveloped 3.5-acre parcel. Sitework included 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 system, ‘honeycomb’ aluminum panel systems, and a 120 foot-long rolled and sloped interior soffit with integral lighting elements. The ICI team possesses an existing familiarity with Audi brand standards after completing the dealer’s Highland Park location.
ICI invested significant effort during a two-year preconstruction period as various construction scenarios for the parcel and dealership 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 extended Woodward Drive adjacent to the dealership, widened Randall Road, and installed a new traffic signal at the corner of Randall and Woodward. The process entailed close coordination with the City of St Charles and Kane County Division of Transportation.
