Project Description

This project consisted of 2 buildings, 1 auto canopy and 1 truck canopy on an approximately 6-acre site. 1 structure contained the convenience store, carwash and fueling, and the other contained multi-user retail space. WT Group provided design, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and structural engineering, and continually provides program management for multiple sites of the Ricky Rocket program. This project was the second of the Ricky Rocket imaged retail petroleum facilities, which was a much larger version than the first facility located in Hoffman Estates, IL. This project included an interconnect between the ͚Tommy͛s͛ style acrylic panel and steel structure carwash with the brick/metal panels on block and steel structure convenience store, the shared structural wall posed a challenge due to having two separate design teams for the Carwash portion and the Convenience store portion. This project will, and already has shaped the future designs of the Ricky Rocket program. This project stays consistent with the Ricky Rocket image and design and is successful because it will continue to grow the brand.
