Cookeville Ford Lincoln Mercury

When Alexander Automotive decided to build the new Cookeville Ford Dealership, they contacted J&S Construction for our expertise in the design-build service. J&S Construction led the design-build team of Michael Brady Inc., CHC Mechanical (Mechanical Engineer) and Clinton Engineering (Civil Engineer). The team worked with the owner for approximately 18 months, helping to manage the design and construction of the facility. The 21,000-square-foot facility was completed and open for business in September of 2009.

The dealership contains showrooms, an eight-bay service center, office space and a parts department. The parts department includes a second floor mezzanine which is used for additional storage. The Ford dealership was originally designed as a 17,000 square foot facility; however, after construction began, the owner realized the excitement about the new dealership and decided to expand the service and parts departments to its current size. When using the design-build approach and working with Michael Brady Inc., along with all of our sub contractors, design changes were introduced seamlessly, delivering a commendable final project.

Some of the highlights of this project include an aluminum raised rib panel for the exterior of the building, which gives the building a contemporary look that will remain engaging for years to come.

The Ford Dealership is the fourth project J&S Construction has completed for this owner. The number of projects completed for the Alexander Automotive family reflects directly on the quality of work completed by a construction company. In 2009, more than 75 percent or our work was with repeat clients.

This project was completed with no J&S Construction requested Change Orders. J&S Construction was delighted to add Cookeville Ford to its list of Delighted Clients.
