Carousel Motor Group, a Minneapolis-based company, is building a new two-story Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep & Ram dealership in Coon Rapids. The project, which started in early March, will nearly double the facility footprint from 44,000 square feet to 86,000 square feet.

The facility will also have additional space for the dealership to start servicing used vehicles; the additional space will allow the company to service larger trucks like the Ram 4500 and 5500 models. The new dealership is slated to open in early spring 2019.

Carousel Motor Group is working with Golden Valley-based RJM Construction and Minneapolis-based Baker Associates Inc. as its general contractor and architect for this project.

Wells Concrete is currently manufacturing and erecting nearly 80,000 sq. ft. of precast concrete for the new dealership. The precast includes insulated architectural wall panels with a sandblast and waterwash finish, as well as hollowcore plank and spandrels.

Precast helps car dealerships go up faster and open sooner. Because time is money. Once the contract is signed and the dirt is pushed, delays from weather and getting skilled labor on site can kill the momentum of a car dealership construction project. That’s why precast concrete was the go-to choice for this project as we produced the precast components in a controlled environment and then shipped and erected them at the job-site.
