The Opus Group plans to build three 52,000-square-foot retail buildings for St. Paul, Minnesota-based retailer Gander Mountain. The new retail stores will be located in Augusta, Georgia; Newnan, Georgia and Algonquin, Illinois. Opus has previously completed four retail buildings for Gander Mountain in Alabama and Georgia.
The new retail facilities will help Gander Mountain achieve its vision for a smaller, more open concept retail space. An open floor plan organized in a circular path will allow customers to conveniently move throughout the mercantile floor and help to accommodate large outdoor recreation goods and equipment.
In addition to mercantile floor space, each building will include office and storage spaces designed for maximum efficiency with the store’s retail operation team in mind.
Opus Design Build, L.L.C. is the general contractor and CMA is providing architecture services. Construction on the new buildings will progress through the summer with completion slated for fall 2014.
