Kelly VW Dealership
The Kelly Automotive Group, founded in 1965, is known for their excellent customer service throughout their many dealerships in the Boston region. The company’s dealership in Danvers, covering almost five acres, is the largest Volkswagen dealership in North America. It includes a 32,000-square-foot building with outside storage and parking for 400 vehicles.
Recently, Kelly Automotive Group received recognition for installing a roof-mounted 1kw wind turbine at this facility. The electricity is used for lighting, and to recharge electric vehicles. Kelly Automotive’s initiative, which it considers a first step in reducing its carbon footprint, has prompted the town of Danvers to develop new zoning bylaws for wind turbine installation. During construction of the new dealership, our firm provided site design and construction services for utilities, parking, handicap accessibility, and landscape design associated with regulatory compliance and land use permits.
