Arlington, Texas (PRWEB) September 26, 2005
General Contractor Bob Moore Construction company has completed Northern Tool & Equipment's new retail store in Lewisville, Texas, just north of Dallas / Fort Worth.
Bob Moore Construction company was chosen to build the equipment retailer's Lewisville store following their successful completion of Northern Tool's property in Grand Prairie in 2004. The architect for the Lewisville store was ADW Architects in Charlotte, North Carolina and the developer was Centdev Properties in Cornelius, North Carolina.
The new 25,454 SF retail store building features a large sales area with shelving for thousands of products. The building also houses several administrative offices, a loading dock, a product assembly area and an employee break room. An outdoor equipment yard displays larger pieces of equipment. Shoppers who have visited other Northern Tool & Equipment stores will notice a different look to the Lewisville location. Gone is the red and blue color scheme - this exterior is finished in a beige, dark brown and burgundy color palette with a flat canopy and a large tower structure bearing the company's new logo at the entrance.
"This building is one of the first prototype stores we've built to represent the new design, branding and image our stores will include down the road," said Chris Brockman, Assistant Construction Manager for Northern Tool & Equipment. "We're changing the look of our retail properties, moving to what we think better symbolizes who we are and what we do. The new entry tower structure with the new Northern Tool logo is a major element on the building, something people can see as they drive by and easily recognize it as Northern Tool & Equipment. It turned out really well and we are extremely proud of our new building design."
The construction team employed a variety of creative solutions to meet budget, schedule and local building code requirements. "We took a very innovative approach to solving the challenges we faced in the design and planning phases," said Curt Hellen, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction company. "This required close coordination with everyone involved. The team worked very well together - the steps we took were very successful at holding down the overall cost of the project."

"The building turned out really well," said Brockman. "Curt Hellen was very good about working together and keeping things going thru to conclusion. If we encountered any bumps Curt was very accommodating in giving us multiple options for a solution so we knew what choices were out there. He was always accessible if we needed immediate action and he produced results. It was very good working with Bob Moore Construction and we look forward to a prosperous relationship."
