Previously a long standing bank building, this corner property Cal Automotive acquired for their business was deemed a local landmark. CAL Automotive is a leasing company of new cars that provides the bulk of inventory of used cars to dealers such as Auto Lenders.
CAL Auto commissioned DeSimone Construction to transform the property into a new leasing center. Over the course of 12 months, we added a 7,500 sq ft, modern 2-story addition to the existing structure, refinished the front historic facade and original building, and repurposed the existing safe into a second filing room for leases and titles. The new build included a state of the art conference room and full kitchen.
Bob Ciconte (owner of several South Jersey restaurant chains including Ciconte’s Pizzeria, Village Pub and Cinder Bar) and Tony Stavola (Owner/President of Savona-Stavola Food Service) contacted DeSimone Construction to build the 10,000 square-foot shell for their second Cinder Bar location, in Sicklerville, NJ.
As part of the build, DeSimone installed a 95-foot long Roll-A-Cover retractable glass roof and wall system (one of the largest in the area) to create an indoor/outdoor dining space that could be used flexibly throughout the NJ seasons. Having finished this project right before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the inclusion of this roof and wall technology in the build proved vital to the restaurant’s success as it allowed the owners to maintain their staff and service while competitors were closing.
When Dr. Vijay Singh contacted Desimone Construction to oversee the construction of his new Advocare practice in Mt Laurel, the original 6,000 square-foot structure on the property (formerly a construction office) was in severe need of repairs.
DeSimone expanded the structure with two small additions and rebuilt the shell down to the concrete slab and steel framing. Complete with a high end medical fit out to match the brand image of the other Advocare locations in Sewell, Vineland and Voorhees, the new location comprises 10 examination rooms, four private doctor offices, nurse and PA stations, and an infusion suite.
