Rockville Porsche-Audi Dealership
Category / Retail
- This landmark luxury car dealership in a prime location consisted of ground-up new construction of a 35,000-sq. ft. showroom, service bay, parts area, sales and show room, and office/meeting rooms.
- TW was chosen to perform as a negotiated construction manager-at-risk for this out-of-state owner. TW collaborated with the architect’s design team and the owner, serving as liaison with the city permitting authorities and working with the civil engineer on site permitting issues.
- This was the first of several projects for this client, laying the foundation for future successful project collaboration.
Why Therrien Waddell?

swith local government agencies, providing credibility to ease permitting obstacles.
- Equally strong relationships with local engineering firms helped TW facilitate plan processing.
- TW demonstrated a willingness to work in concert with the owner on budget, pricing, and schedule, making it a true partnership.
Challenges and Results
- This was a complex project, and the TW team faced multiple obstacles:
- Site work revisions required an extensive underground storm water storage structure to accommodate stipulations of an adjacent country club.
- The local municipality required an alternate design for a retaining wall. TW gathered options and design solutions to accomplish the change.
- TW saved the owner approximately $100,000 by identifying local vendors that provided competitive pricing on light fixtures.
