JH Rhodes - Relocation

In 2007 we met this specialty manufacturer of polishing pads for the glass and consumer electronics industry. We had originally proposed a new 60,000 sf facility in Clinton, adjacent to their existing plant. The economic collapse of 2008 cancelled that project.


In 2011 the company contacted us about an available vacant building that we happened to have built in 1970. The 82,000 sf vacant former Oneida Container building was in very good condition but would need a major renovation project.


We assembled a design and construction team to facilitate a complete renovation.

The project includes large production rooms and areas with new full height partitions, complete painting of all exposed steel, heavy duty epoxy floor painting, completely new HVAC including several new Roof Top units with plant air conditioning and ventilation, a new 1200 amp electrical service and power to new equipment as well as new Labs and some new Offices.


The project was completed in March of 2013

The 41,000 square-foot building is located next to existing student housing, enabling more than 400 of the college's 5000 students to live on campus. The architect chose a red brick exterior which coincides with the exterior of the existing student housing. The building will feature five-person suites with two double rooms and one-single room, along with a common gathering area and bathroom. Rooms are wired for Internet, telephone and cable-television services. Our company was selected on a design/build delivery system.

Wilber Duck Chevy

In the spring of 2011, we sent out letters to local Chevrolet Dealerships asking if they were going to complete the renovations that were a new Image requirement from General Motors. The Wilber Duck dealership in Oneida responded and asked if we could meet with them. Following that meeting we prepared a budget based on the preliminary information from GM. We then offered our Design-Build Pre-Construction services to develop the drawings enough to prepare a more accurate budget.

In the fall of 2011, the owners accepted the budget. Through the winter, we completed the Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, and Electrical plans with our consulting Architect and Engineers. The plans were submitted and approved by GM. We then bid out the project to a qualified list of area sub-contractors and suppliers and finalized costs for the items we self-perform.

The project began in March and was completed in early November 2012. The renovations included a complete removal of the Showroom building exterior, structural modifications for the new storefront layout and new GM Standard Aluminum Panels and signage. Also included were 2 additions – one for New Car Delivery and a Service Entrance Canopy. A complete interior demolition and renovation of the Showroom, Sales, Business, and Executive Offices, Customer Waiting, Service Write Up and Parts Sale areas was completed. Also a new electrical service and completely new HVAC systems were installed.

We are glad to have led the design and construction renovating this 80 year old building giving it a brand new look that meets the new GM/Chevrolet standards. We will add this project to our growing list of completed Auto Dealership projects.
