GREGG’S CYCLE

Client: Gregg’s Cycle
Architect: Weinstein A\U
Location: Bellevue, WA

Description: This project included complete demolition of an existing building and construction of a new masonry and structural steel facility for this bicycle dealership. Customers drive under the building to park, and then ascend an eight-foot-wide staircase to the second floor retail showroom. The parking area and retail areas are each 5,000 sq. ft. Clear windows with a high UV rating were installed on the street-side of the new building to make the store's bicycles - hanging from special stainless steel railings and illuminated by special display lighting - easily visible to anyone passing by.
"When I first started the process of contractor selection for the new Bellevue building, I had little knowledge of the commercial construction and was guided by Ed Weinstein to Foushée. He suggested that we only talk to firms that had the highest reputation and substantial experience. I remember being impressed with your project team and with your customer orientation approach. This was the beginning of a great relationship. I appreciate the efforts made during the pre-construction process to value engineer the building to fit within my budget. I have found the follow through of the Foushée team to be very thorough in every instance and they have well exceeded my expectations. With any issue that arose, I never saw a drop in this high level of service. This outstanding service is how I made Foushée the obvious choice for our Greenlake building addition. I never gave any thought to using another contractor! I appreciate the exceptional service and commitment, thank you."
