Eckman Construction has been providing design-build services during the development phase of the construction of a new Land Rover Dealership in Bedford, NH. The new, 19,500 square-foot facility will be one of the first standalone Land Rover dealerships in North America to implement the new Jaguar-Land Rover “ARCH” concept – a new global brand standard – that features a sophisticated modern design, which signals an evolution to a new contemporary brand identity.
The new Land Rover dealership in Bedford will be built adjacent to the existing dealership on the northeast area of the same parcel at 404 South River Road. The timeless, contemporary design will feature a distinctive gray facade and slim window profile that supplements and open interior space to showcase the vehicles on display. The modern facility, which strives to provide a premium customer experience, will have a five-vehicle showroom, car delivery room, exquisite common spaces and a state-of-the-art service area that provides top-line equipment and resources for maintenance technicians.
The project is currently seeking approvals through the Bedford Planning Board. Preliminary plans have construction slated to begin this summer. The Goodwin Motor Group owns and operates the Land Rover dealership and will take over the new facility once it is complete. As part of the design-build team, Warrenstreet Architects of Concord is assisting with architectural services on the project. Eckman also managed construction of façade upgrades to the existing Bedford Land Rover dealership in 2011.
