Pellicano Construction was contracted by Butler Automotive Group to work as a General Contractor on a Design/Build contract for the construction of the Audi South Atlanta project at 4332 Jonesboro Rd. in Union City, GA. Audi South Atlanta is a 3-story 55,121 square foot structural steel and concrete structure built for the sales, service and administrative functions of a luxury automotive dealership. This facility includes 331 parking spaces with 86 spaces on a second story parking deck over the service area. Pellicano Construction has a relationship with Butler Automotive Group where company project management representatives are involved in the project once the site has been purchased and work with the owner’s representatives and automotive manufacturer representatives throughout the design of the project to help ensure that the manufacturer’s dealership criteria are followed while meeting the local building design ordinances. Pellicano is very knowledgeable about automotive dealerships through the construction of different brands for Butler Automotive Group and other dealers. This Design/Build background ensures that the owners understand what the Design Intent Drawings that are provided from the automotive manufacturer are requiring in regards to the use of space and square footage requirements for each dealership. With this experience Pellicano knows that each owner’s requirements for the function of a dealership are different and feel it is our job to understand the day-to- day operational needs for a successful facility for our customers. Pellicano assists in the design/build process with the owner and architect to avoid excess design time by working hand in hand with the designers to create a balance between the design criteria and the functionality of the facility.
