New England Construction Supports 87,000 sf Balise Automotive Expansion Program

RUMFORD, RI – The Balise Motor Sales Group has enlisted New England Construction to support their expansion and renovation program encompassing more than 87,000 sf at four dealerships located in Warwick and West Warwick, Rhode Island. New England Construction recently broke ground on the fourth project in the program–the new ground-up 25,669 sf state-of-the-art Subaru dealership in West Warwick, RI. The NEC team provided extensive pre-construction services providing guidance and expertise with the design entitlement process, as well as manufacturer compliance protocols.

The new facility, designed by Vision 3 Architects, will incorporate a spacious, user-friendly showroom and customer lounge area featuring a kids play area, WIFI access and aquarium display. The new 11,500 sf indoor service drive will incorporate 16 service bays and 3 wash bays. As with all of their projects, Balise continues to be dedicated to incorporating sustainable elements into all of their new facilities, including environmentally friendly landscaping and storm water management system, as well as all new LED interior and exterior lighting. The new facility is scheduled to be opened in late Summer 2014.

Additional projects that have been completed in this program include the new 21,500 sf Nissan dealership, the new 24,000 sf Chevrolet dealership, and the 16,000 sf renovations and addition at the Balise Volkswagen dealership.
