Owen-Ames-Kimball Company (O-A-K), a Fort Myers-based construction contracting and management company, has completed the Sam Galloway Ford Service Center renovations. The project included renovations to the interior of the existing service building, as well as a remodel of the center’s service drive.
The project encompassed renovations to the service center’s waiting area, restrooms, car rental booth, concierge, hospitality, business development and cashiers areas. The service drive-thru area underwent a variety of improvements, including demolition of the existing service writers’ kiosk and construction of new service writers’ booths, installation of porcelain tile on the service drive and replacement of existing grid ceiling with new stucco ceiling and LED light fixtures.
According to Robert Galloway, vice president of Sam Galloway Ford, the completion of the expansion project has greatly enhanced the business’s ability to serve customers.
“It has increased our capacity tremendously, and it allows us to operate much more efficiently because we have more capacity for staff and more staff to service our customers. We are now arguably one of the largest service drives in Southwest Florida as far as capacity,” Galloway said. “I highly commend Dave Dale and his team at O-A-K on addressing every concern we have and getting the project completed on time and on budget.”
The O-A-K team on the Sam Galloway Ford Service Center project included Abrie Spies as project manager and Rick Gutkneckt as superintendent.
