Heidner Properties, Inc. – Ricky Rocket Fuel Center
Design & Program Management
This project consisted of 2 buildings, 1 auto canopy and 1 truck canopy on an approximately 6-acre site. One 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. The second of the Ricky Rocket imaged retail petroleum facilities, it was a much larger version compared to first facility located in Hoffman Estates, IL. A challenging feature included an interconnect between the acrylic panel and steel structure carwash with the brick/metal panels on block and steel structure convenience store. With a successful result, this particular project has shaped the future designs of the Ricky Rocket program, staying consistent with the growing brand's image and design.
