Speed Fab-Crete Breaks Ground on Roger Williams Auto Dealership in Metro Dallas
WEATHERFORD, TEXAS — Fort Worth-based design-build general contractor Speed Fab-Crete has broken ground on a 60,000-square-foot auto dealership for Roger Williams, the only new car dealer in Weatherford. Slated for completion in April 2016, the new Roger Williams Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram dealership will be located at 1102 Washington Drive along I-20 and will replace the existing Roger Williams Auto Mall. The dealership’s exterior will be built using precast concrete walls, cast stone, metal accents and floor-to-ceiling panoramic glass. Interior amenities will include a customer lounge, open office spaces, display areas, 25 service bays, car wash facility and parts sector. The new dealership is the largest project included in the company-wide upgrade of Roger Williams’ auto facilities in Weatherford, all of which are being built by Speed Fab-Crete and designed by Callahan & Freeman Architects. Business operations will remain open during the construction process. In addition to Speed Fab-Crete and Callahan & Freeman Architects, the Roger Williams Collision Center expansion project team includes Fort Worth-based Callahan Structural Engineering Inc. as the structural engineer and Lillian, Texas-based Hulsey Engineering as the mechanical, plumbing and electrical (MEP) engineer.
