ADAMS Work is coming to a close for projects at two dealerships at the Fuccillo Auto Mall space on Route 11.
Sales staff members for the Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep dealership plan to move into a new 16,200-square-foot building by the end of the week. The project has been under construction since late October.
Its fantastic ... were really excited about it, said Gerald B. Morgan, the dealerships general manager.
Mr. Morgan said the plan was for the dealerships sales staff to move in by the weekend. The projects final stage, he said, involves exterior landscaping and some paving.
The sales teams move comes in advance of the planned move for the dealerships parts and services department, which Mr. Morgan said would take place in June. After that relocation, the dealerships existing building will be demolished and converted into parking.
Mr. Morgan said the new space wouldnt lead to changes in its services, but instead an increase in activity.
The dealership plans to increase its truck inventory by 25 percent and other vehicles by 10 percent. Mr. Morgan said the additions in the service department, including express lanes for oil changes, would increase business by about 25 percent.
He estimated the project will cost about $1.5 million to $2 million, and contractor Donald E. Clark, owner of DC Building Systems, Watertown, said it has stayed on budget.
Mr. Clark said constructing the building, the companys fifth dealership project, had been smoother than smooth.
Work also is concluding for a makeover project at Fuccillos Chevrolet and Buick dealership as a part of the national car companys marketing program,
David J. Currier, the dealerships general manager, said the space has a new customer lounge, bathrooms and paint.
Weve brightened it up quite a bit, he said.
He said the dealerships showroom space will be finished this week.
The renovation ends as the Fuccillo Automotive Group puts together its Huge-A-Thon 2013 promotion, which features giveaways of $250,000 in prizes.
Names will be drawn May 31 from each of the groups 20 dealerships throughout the state. Winners then will be invited to join Billy Fuccillo, the automotive groups owner, at Turning Stone Resort and Casino, Verona, for the grand prize drawing.
