If you’ve been following Emerald Coast Marine on Facebook
or have visited the dealership’s headquarters recently, no doubt you’ve seen our spectacular new 10,560 square foot showroom featuring boat exhibit, sales and administrative office space!
After nine months of work, the two-story, mezzanine level showroom is now open for business and has created a perfect, climate-controlled venue for boat shopping.
“Our staff and customers are already enjoying the shopping convenience and benefits associated with our beautiful new, air-conditioned, indoor showroom,” said Shawn Talpey, ECM president, who gave extra special recognition to Building Design Systems.
“Despite the unique challenges of the past several months impacting many businesses, our major expansion project tracked right on time and on budget, thanks to the hard work and dedicated efforts of an outstanding engineering and project management team led by Mark Barrett of Building Design Systems.
Mark and his team clearly understood our vision and not only delivered on time and on budget, but provided great insight and recommendations to make our vision become reality.”
Barrett added, “One of the keys to this project’s success was the excellent communication we enjoyed with the dealership owners during the design and development phase. They provided a clear understanding of their needs and purpose which minimized changes during the construction process.”
The new showroom accommodates up to 15 new boats in-house, along with 14 dedicated offices and a new conference room. One of the highlights of the new design is the stunning emerald green and blue “reflector enhancer flooring system” which gives the appearance of brilliant coastal waters. In addition, the expanded showroom’s exterior design retains the same coastal architecture of the original landmark building, which is topped by its signature icon lighthouse.
