E. P. Doyle performed extensive remodeling of the Biggers Chevrolet dealership in Elgin. This was done as part of GM’s most recent dealer image update program. The floor plan was changed to enhance customer areas and streamline business operations. An impressive tower element was constructed to define the main entrance and the entire exterior façade was clad with an aluminum composite panel system.
E. P. Doyle relied on their previous dealership experience to maintain business operations during construction. Phased construction and shift-work were required at critical times in the project schedule. There were inherent difficulties in being one of the first contractors in the state to execute GM’s latest image program. E. P. Doyle worked closely with the architect, dealership, and General Motors representatives to clarify project requirements and satisfy the Owner’s needs.
