DJ Construction, Basney BMW Ready for Remodel
South Bend – December 2, 2014—Basney BMW announces its plans to remodel and expand its current BMW automobile dealership located at 52203 State Road 933 North.
DJ Construction is the general contractor for the upgrades that will commence January 2015.
Basney BMW’s president, Jim Basney said the renovations in no way will hinder sales and customer service.
“We will continue to sell BMW’s and offer premium service to our customers while we are updating our facility,” said Jim Basney.
6,500 sq. ft. of space will comprise the major remodel, along with the addition of 9,445 sq. ft. of new floor space in the service area.
The show room, reception area, customer lounge, service garage, and sales office areas will be upgraded with new finishes and exterior glass store fronts. The changes coordinate with BMW of North America’s initiative to modernize its dealerships and prepare for Future Retail.
“BMW aims to give showrooms the friendliness of an Apple computer store and the technology and experts to explain the growing product line. One key component is the increased use of video to showcase BMW’s expanding lineup. About three years ago BMW had 50 to 60 different products and today the number tops 100,” said Basney.
“We chose DJ Construction as the contractor for this project because they are a local company that has been in business for over 60 years. Their professional approach to quality of work, design of the dealership remodel, and being able to work within our budget was paramount in choosing them as our contractor,” said Basney.
