Hendrick Automotive Group, Concord Auto Mall
Hendrick Automotive Group is one of the nation’s most successful automotive dealership groups, having locations in 12 states. With headquarters in Charlotte, NC, Hendrick turned to EMH&T’s Charlotte office for site development of one of its leading dealerships in nearby Concord, NC. Our landscape architecture studio in Columbus, OH provided a wide range of services including site master planning, preliminary grading studies, zoning compliance exhibits, landscape design and construction documents and both 2D and 3D visualizations.
The 46 acre site is located immediately adjacent to the Hendrick Motorsports Headquarters and race shops and is also nearby the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Along with meeting the functional requirements of a multi-dealership operation the Hendrick Automotive Group was greatly interested in the aesthetic appearance of the site and landscape. EMH&T prepared a multitude of 2D and 3D visualizations that supported the team’s decision-making process. These visualizations ranged from quick design studies to photo-matched perspective views to photorealistic renderings. Because EMH&T was charged with both the site engineering and landscape architecture we were able to quickly coordinate efforts and refine the design as new information became available.
