Schemmer was tasked with assisting RAKA in designing a new dealership in Clear Lake, Iowa. One of Schemmer’s first duties was to provide a design for the exterior, sensitive to the existing interior brand standards for RAKA. This was achieved by using different types of metal wall panels, glass, masonry, textures and colors for the exterior design. This same concept was introduced to the interior of the building to provide cohesive branding throughout the facility. The dealership is a 14,500 SF building which includes 5,500 SF of showroom and offices and 9,000 SF of services and storage area. The site was designed to allow for the display of the RAKA aerial equipment line along with the maneuvering of trucks and cars.
Schemmer was retained to provide Survey; Architecture; Geotechnical, Civil, Structural, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering for the Project.
