Adam Smith's Texas Harley-Davidson Celebrates Grand Opening of New Dealership in Bedford, Texas
June 20, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsJune 20, 2016 - Adam's Smith's Texas Harley-Davidson has celebrated the grand opening its exciting new dealership in Bedford, Texas.
Texas Harley-Davidson is one of the top ten Harley dealerships in the United States. In March 2015, Design/Build Contractor Bob Moore Construction broke ground on the new home for Texas Harley-Davidson, to consolidate the company's operations into one facility and give it room to expand in the future.
Texas Harley hosted their grand opening celebration in April, 2016.
The new dealership features 71,000 SF of retail, office and service department space. The exterior was crafted with textured walls, finished in Harley Davidson's signature black and orange. A large metal awning with black trim spans the front and side of the building, with metal panels and large sections of glass curtainwall showcase the motorcycles within. Across the top, flags and the Texas Harley-Davidson name and logo are visible to motorists driving by on Airport Freeway in Bedford.
The building is fronted with 100,000+ SF of customer parking and paved motorcycle display space. Behind the building is a large driver's training space to support the safety classes provided by Texas HD.
The interior retail space was designed to provide a dynamic blend of old style warehouse and industrial styles. Stained finish concrete accented with wood taken from old wine and whiskey barrels accent the showroom. The walls feature extensive Harley-Davidson artwork along with sections of old brick. Overhead, the steel structure, duct work and piping are left raw and exposed to enhance the industrial feel.
The new facility also features a technologically advanced service facility with epoxy-covered floors, indoor wash and detail bays, a parts department and a Dynamometer. The service area is also home to the largest Harley-Davidson sign ever created. Spanning 35 feet, this massive sign required the installation of structural steel lattice to support its weight.
A large area on the second floor provides storage space for hundreds of motorcycles. The upstairs also features a training facility, employee lounge and office space.
"Texas Harley-Davidson is an amazing new facility," said Kyle Whitesell, Executive Vice President of Bob Moore Construction. "As one of the top Harley dealers in the United States, Texas Harley wanted to make a powerful statement with their new home and they certainly accomplished that. The raw, industrial feel on the interior, accented with the old brick and wood embellishments, capture the Harley-Davidson culture perfectly – Harley riders will love visiting this dealership.
"Adam Smith and his team with Texas Harley-Davidson did a great job of providing the vision for this new dealership," added Mr. Whitesell. "The people with the City of Bedford were also great to work with. As a result, Texas Harley-Davidson has a superb new dealership, Bedford has the kind of business property that can be an anchor for new businesses to move in along Airport Freeway, and Bob Moore Construction has an exciting new addition to our retail building portfolio. This project is a winner for everyone involved."
