Project Stevenson Chevrolet
Eastern North Carolina’s Stevenson Automotive Group enlisted parent company A M King to design and build its new Chevrolet dealership in Swansboro, N.C. The project marks the second collaboration between Stevenson and A M King; A M King previously designed and built a Toyota dealership for the group. The Chevrolet dealership includes a 30,000-square-foot showroom and service area, and a 5,000-square-foot automotive detail area. A M King brought in structural fill to support the building and parking areas, and created wetlands to handle stormwater from the site. The dealership includes a water reclamation system which allows the vehicle detail building to use recycled water. Additionally, waste oil from the service area is used by the building’s clean-burning heating system. The project stayed on a tight 10-month construction schedule despite 30 inches of rain in just 45 days.
