– CarMax Associate, Vice President of Construction & Design
The new, ground-up 7,500-square-foot construction in Tyler, Texas was a first of many projects EMJ has partnered with CarMax on.
EMJ’s team spoke with the owner early on to gain understanding of his priorities and goals for the project. The owner emphasized the importance of having the CarMax main sign installed prior to project completion and the opening of the facility. EMJ analyzed the project schedule and realized that they could restructure it to install the sign even earlier than requested by the owner.
After reworking the schedule, the CarMax sign went up four months after groundbreaking and landscaping was added to enhance curb appeal of the construction site from the nearby highway. In order to add even more value, the team connected the sign to the work trailer for power and set up a photocell, allowing them to further market the property at night.
