The Challenge & Solution with Hendrick Auto

Project Challenge:
The Hendrick Auto Dealership faced a unique logistical challenge – a storm water canal that divided their expansive vehicle inventory. This physical barrier hindered the smooth operation and accessibility between the two facility lots, necessitating a creative and efficient solution.

Innovative Solution: York Bridge Concepts rose to the challenge with a bespoke design, offering a free-span bridge that integrates seamlessly with the dealership’s environment and operations. Our full-service design-build approach ensured a tailor-made solution that addresses both aesthetic appeal and functional needs.

The bridge boasts a sophisticated urban color palette of two-toned greens and earthy tans, reflecting the natural beauty of Charleston’s landscapes. This choice of colors not only complements the local surroundings but also aligns with the dealership's upscale branding.
