The project is a new “greenfield” ground-up development with no operational phasing required. The site (21.42 AC) is located approximately six miles north of the existing Northside Lexus dealership just north of the I-45 and Loop 99 intersection. The project consists of three new buildings 1) new two-story high sales (approx. 32,000 SF) and service (approx. 68,000 SF) building, 2) Collision Center approximately 33,000 SF, 3) and separate car wash of approximately 5,400 SF. The exterior wall system consists of an exterior insulating finish stucco system over a concrete tilt-wall.
The Project will be a class type IIB construction and fully sprinklered for all three new structures. The building’s heating and air conditioning will be provided from rooftop package units located over the sales and service building and collision center. The security program entails a full-time security guard to be located on-site with security cameras located in selected areas of the fully lighted site. The back of house areas will be fenced in with keypad access and gated entry.
The Northside Lexus is one of the top Lexus dealerships in the United States. Their success required them to expand into a new facility. Trivium Advisors was engaged to act as the Owners Representative Project Management firm to develop the new facility, as well as the new Westside facility, once the design teams were selected. Trivium assisted the client in selecting specialized consultants to reduce potential change orders. Trivium also aided in the creation of a scoring system RFP process for the selection of the project’s general contractor.
The Northside Lexus, along with the Westside Lexus, are Class A and include private offices, state-of-the-art automotive shops and equipment, and client hospitality amenities. Trivium Advisors solicited feedback from multiple stakeholders throughout the project. Through this, Trivium ensured the gain of end-user buy-in and a successful project outcome. Both before and after construction, Trivium provided value engineering and monthly reporting services to the client’s executive committee.
