Construction Begins at Autohaus BMW of Maplewood


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

St. Louis, MO – March 4, 2019

Autohaus BMW of Maplewood is starting a 6-month construction project to renovate large portions of its existing facility. IMPACT Strategies is providing preconstruction and construction management services. TR,I Architects is the architect-of-record.

The renovation includes a complete redesign of the showroom, an expanded new car delivery area, reconfigured offices, service advisor area, customer lounge, upgraded finishes, and new lighting, consistent with BMW’s latest prototype according to Mike Christ, IMPACT Strategies’ Director of PreConstruction. Exterior façade upgrades include a new entry vestibule, modern finishes, and an exterior canopy at the new car delivery area. IMPACT Strategies completed an expansion of the facility’s parking lot last summer in preparation for this renovation.

“We are excited to embark on the next chapter in Autohaus history. Some disruption is expected, which made this a tough decision.  In the end, we decided it was best for the future of the company and the customer experience,” said Peggy Wessel, President.  

Work begins this month and will be complete in Fall 2019. Autohaus BMW will remain open during the renovation. To minimize disruption to the dealership’s daily operations, Sales and Service staff have relocated to temporary offices in front of the building allowing Autohaus to provide the same high-quality experience expected by its customers.

Other BMW dealerships nationwide are undergoing similar upgrades to meet the manufacturer’s new mandatory facilities standards.

In 2013, IMPACT Strategies constructed a new $4.5 million auto showroom and service center for MINI of St. Louis near Hanley and Manchester roads in Maplewood. TR,I Architects also served as architect-of-record for that project.
