Roger Williams auto dealer replacing Weatherford facility

Speed Fab-Crete has broken ground on a 60,000-square-foot Roger Williams auto dealership in Weatherford.

Construction is expected to be completed in April 2016, with the dealership offering Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands at 1102 Washington Drive along Interstate 20. The facility will replace the existing Roger Williams Auto Mall at 1015 Fort Worth Highway, also in Weatherford.

“Weatherford is a proud small-town community with a rich and celebrated history that has seen unparalleled growth in the past two decades,” said David Bloxom, president of Speed-Fab Crete, commenting in a news release.

“We are honored to be part of this notable project that will reap positive economic benefits to the city for years to come,” Bloxom said.

The new dealership’s exterior will feature Speed Fab-Crete’s high-strength precast concrete walls, cast stone, metal accents and floor-to-ceiling panoramic glass windows.

Interior amenities will include 25 service bays and car wash facility. Energy-efficient features will be incorporated throughout, emphasizing water efficiency, conservation of energy and natural resources, and reuse of materials.

A 3,700-square-foot expansion of the existing Roger Williams Collision Center also is under construction at 1405 Fort Worth Highway at Industrial Street. Business operations will continue during construction, which is slated to be complete in August. The expanded Collision Center will include new equipment, a training center and room to house more than 20 vehicles.
