BEVERLY, Mass. — Connolly Brothers Inc., a construction management firm serving private commercial, industrial, and institutional clients, recently completed a new two-story, 27,500 square-foot Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram auto dealership project. Once a former drive-in movie theater site, the new dealership is located on Route 108 in Somersworth, New Hampshire, and serves as a Sales and Service Auto Dealership for all four CDJR brands.

The new facility's front sales space offers an inviting, 4,400 square-foot showroom, displaying the latest Chrysler, Dodge, and RAM vehicles on one side and Jeep vehicles on the other. The dealership also has a dual lane service drive area with capacity for six vehicles, which includes an electronic tire tread and alignment analyzer to expedite vehicle service processing. To pass the time, customers can relax in the Jeep-themed guest lounge, equipped with a coffee and snack bar, a TV, and a tech table suitable for remote work.

In addition to a showroom, service drive area, and guest lounge, Tri-City's new dealership houses a 10,800 square-foot, 16-bay service garage including an alignment bay with lift capacities for cars, pickup trucks, light trucks, and small RVs, strategically designed to maximize efficiency and speed of repair work. Moreover, 170 exterior parking spaces are accessible for new vehicles, customers, and employees.

The building is constructed with materials consisting of insulated metal panel system (IMP), exterior insulated finish systems (EIFS), aluminum composite material (ACM), and aluminum curtain wall systems.

"We pride ourselves on repeat business and this relationship goes back over forty years and three generations of leadership at Connolly Brothers," says Connolly Brothers President and CEO, Jay Connolly. "The confidence and trust DSR Motorgroup has in our firm is something we take very seriously and we look forward to working on more projects with them in the future."

Connolly served as the Architect of Record and Construction Manager for this design-build project.
