Auto Lenders of Newtown Square

Auto Lenders of Newtown Square

Auto lenders enlisted DeSimone’s services on a new space they leased in Newtown Square. The property when first acquired consisted of three deteriorating buildings with tremendous road frontage and visibility. Over the course of 4.5 months, we transformed the exterior facades to fit the Auto Lenders Brand, and completely renovated the center building interior used for the main sales and service shop at the Newtown Square Dealership.

Rastelli's Office Expansion

Rastelli’s Office Expansion

When Rastelli Foods Group needed to expand its office space to meet its staff's future needs, the company contracted with DeSimone Construction to make its new office complex exceptional! This new 12,000 square foot structure at 300 Heron Drive in Swedesboro, NJ, features a grand skylit atrium, creative lighting design, frosted glass office walls, and contrasting yet complementing metal, wood and other finishes that impress occupants and visitors alike.

As an industry leader in the food processing industry, supplying the finest hotels, restaurants, institutions, and retail markets with the highest quality food products and service, Rastelli Foods Group values and wants the best for its employees. As such, the company kept their wellbeing in mind as it merged technology and design to create this new work space. As noted in Corporate Wellness Magazine, “Lighting is an essential part of the workplace. Reduced exposure to natural light at work may cause fatigue, moodiness, headaches, and even sleep disturbances. These not only compromise productivity but also lead to long-term health problems including depression and cognitive decline." Rastelli's new office complex not only provides exposure to natural light, but encourages employees to occasional look up and remember that the sky's the limit!

The new complex features three hi-tech conference rooms, 14 fixed and 32 modular offices, 46 workstations, four restrooms, and a modernized kitchen, all stylishly furnished with form and function in mind. As Rastelli also sets goals to increase its sustainability and reduce its carbon footprint across several aspects of its business, DeSimone Construction mastered every detail to ensure the new space was not only comfortable, but also energy-efficient and sustainable.

New Kitchen

DeSimone recently completed a full remodel of Rastelli Foods Group’s test kitchen. The new cooking studio set, with table seating for 16 and bar seating for four, now serves as a multipurpose room for use as a test kitchen, special value studio, and meeting space. With its light colors and textures, the space is both elegant and functional, and makes quite the first impression when you enter through its glass doors from the main office of the company’s Swedesboro, NJ, facility.

Outdoor Patio Kitchen

When an opportunity arose for a special outdoor QVC shoot, Rastelli’s Foods Group came up with an idea to construct an outdoor kitchen at its Swedesboro, NJ, facility. With four weeks to bring this idea to reality, the company called on DeSimone Construction to build its inviting oasis, complete with all the staples one could want in an outdoor kitchen. The patio, which includes an outdoor fountain, surround sound speakers, full service outdoor kitchen, hardscape patio and seating, and lavish landscaping, is now continuously enjoyed by Rastelli’s employees and guests.

Warehouse Expansion

With its commercial clients expanding their food offerings and growth in its national home delivery service program, Rastelli’s Foods Group needed additional warehouse space in its Swedesboro, NJ, location to meet its growing demand. This world-class provider of food products called on DeSimone Construction to build its state-of-the-art 40,000 square feet cold storage expansion. The project includes six loading docks and a 15,000 square feet freezer.

Façade Modifications

Auto Lenders – Voorhees NJ

In efforts to expand the onsite inventory at its Voorhees locations, Auto Lenders enlisted Desimone’s help to demolish the existing structures on their 3.5-acre property and re-develop the land to provide 200+ new parking spaces for the dealership. The new parking lot, which took three months to finish, was complete with site lighting, landscaping, and storm-water management.

Furthermore, this parking lot helped transform the dealership into a top 2 producing dealership for Auto Lenders.

Auto Lenders Exton

Auto Lenders – Exton, PA

DeSimone Construction recently completed a full fit-out and renovation project to turn this existing auto dealership into a magnificent Auto Lenders Dealership in Exton, PA! The project scope included a complete interior renovation of the former Otto’s Mini Dealership, with an expanded and upgraded retail showroom, service area, employee break room, sales and managers offices, and conference rooms, all to better suit Auto Lenders’ needs. External renovations included two new building additions and full exterior facade modifications, with exceptional details such as a full glass curtain wall, storefronts with metal span insulated wall panels, new site lights, site parking lot modifications, and custom signage to rebrand the dealership.

Started in September 2019 and completed in February 2020, this project clearly reflects the talents of DeSimone Construction’s creative architects, knowledgeable engineers, and skilled carpenters, and truly demonstrates what makes them “Masters of Every Detail!”

Auto Lenders has been an committed and valuable DeSimone Construction customer. “We’ve valued our relationship with Auto Lenders and were privileged to build their CAL Auto – Hamilton, NJ, and AL GO – Berlin, NJ, offices, and this extensive renovation to the new Exton, PA, dealership location, all in three short years. We are grateful to be a part of the company’s team and look forward to future opportunities to support its continued, exponential growth,” shared Anthony DeSimone.

 

AL Go Berlin

AL Go Call Center

Auto Lenders recently started a new business called A.L Go for calling private vehicle owners to purchase vehicles. They needed a building for this business and fast. Due to our strong rapport built over several projects, Auto Lenders called DeSimone to complete the task. To expedite the construction process, DeSimone designed a pre-manufactured building, which was completed in 6 months. The 5,000 square feet building includes a conference room, several offices, a kitchen and a lounge area.

The new business venture was incredibly successful mainly due to the pandemic and shortage of new cars. The ability to purchase directly from the consumer helped fill the inventory.

We are now building out a 30,000 square feet corporate office for the A.L Go and Auto Lenders executives in Cherry Hill.

US Immigration

US Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) facility in Mt Laurel.

In early 2020, DeSimone Construction completed a 5,000 square feet expansion, design build fit-out, and data system update of this existing US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in Mt. Laurel, NJ. The USCIS needed this additional space to complete its mission to perform the country’s naturalization and immigration requirements. Our skilled DeSimone team and preferred vendors completed all carpentry, mechanical systems and finishes, as well as the advancements in technology and security systems necessary to keep USCIS Mt. Laurel up-to-date with the GSA and the US governments requirements. Managing this construction and delivering the technology services at the highest level, including data systems, security systems, card access and surveillance systems, makes us the “Masters of Every Detail.”

“This project exemplifies DeSimone Construction’s abilities to provide a full service, design build, and technology driven commercial fit-out. We were selected for the project because of our longstanding working relationship with the property management company that owned the Pennmark Properties complex,” shared Anthony DeSimone. The company offered full design build services for various GSA projects in the complex to include a 20,000 square foot renovation for Department of Homeland Security Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, a 8,500 square foot fit-out for Social Security Administrations and a 6,000 square foot renovation for Citizenship and Immigration Services. DeSimone Construction is working on a second phase to re-develop 6,000 additional square feet of key areas inside the exiting office space throughout the building.

“Working with the team at the GSA and local CIS field office was truly a pleasure. The professionalism amongst the team provided for a smooth process, and our bi-weekly construction conference calls kept the project in budget and on schedule,” shared Anthony DeSimone. This five-month project demonstrates our quality work at competitive pricing and our ability to manage the project from inception to closeout, starting with selecting and providing the architectural, Mechanical, Electrical, Fire and IT design services needed.

 

CAL Auto

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.
