Hertrich Ford of Easton

Occupied Renovation
The exterior of a Ford dealership features Willow Construction.

Willow Construction completed a full renovation of the interior and exterior of the Hertrich Ford of Easton dealership. The project goal was to enhance the overall customer experience when visiting the dealership. The showroom was upgraded with wood, glass, and tile finishes. To complement the showroom, a larger lounge was created with a refreshments bar, leather furniture, and a flat screen TV. New to the industry, a high-speed overhead door was installed within the service department for better climate control in the open space.

Project Challenges & Solutions

  • The project included casework for the showroom to be furnished by the owner’s vendor. Ongoing collaboration with all parties was necessary to ensure that the casework was delivered and installed in accordance with the construction schedule.
  • The A/E firm for this project was located in Atlanta, Georgia. Willow Construction worked with this out-of-state firm to get plans altered to meet local code requirements. Throughout the process, our management team presented options to the owners to resolve these changes, resulting in cost savings.
  • Willow Construction coordinated with Hertrich to enable the service department to remain operational during construction.
