BMW of Fort Lauderdale FT. LAUDERDALE, FL

With its two-story showroom and five-story garage, the nation’s largest BMW dealership reflects the brand’s sleek high-performance image. The 37,000-sf showroom and adjoining garage make a clean-lined visual statement. Expanses of Starphire Ultra-Clear curtainwall insulated glass deliver maximum clarity and resilience. The super-smooth Parex exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) adds to the contemporary feel. Aluminum louvered panels soften the garage’s exterior, and a customized exterior wall system creates a living green wall facing Federal Highway. Building on the tight site required meticulous staging and scheduling, while minimizing any disruption of traffic flow. Constructing the garage meant staging and lifting a total of 726 individual 70-foot-long prefabricated panels.
