Stellar Completes New Ferguson Showroom, Counter and Warehouse
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 16, 2019) — Construction is now complete at the new Jacksonville Showroom, Sales Counter and Warehouse for Ferguson, the largest plumbing wholesaler in North America.
Stellar, a firm providing award-winning construction management at-risk, design-build and general contracting services for a range of commercial and public sector markets, was the design-builder for the new Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, counter and warehouse.
The new location at 11553 Philips Highway features a:
- 10,670 square-foot high-end showroom
- 6,568 square-foot office space
- 56,600 square-foot warehouse
- 3,520 square-foot retail counter area for plumbing and HVAC professionals
Ferguson turned to Stellar to help complete the design and construction of the new facility after outgrowing its previous space at 3003 Phillips Highway. Stellar also coordinated with on-staff Ferguson designers to complete the design and infrastructure of the showroom to accommodate its high-end Ferguson Kitchen, Bath & Lighting Gallery.
“It was truly a pleasure collaborating with the Ferguson folks from design through completion of construction,” said Scott Wright, project manager at Stellar. “The design-build project had its share of challenges, but working with the knowledgeable professionals at Ferguson ensured success for all parties and a memorable project.”
The new facility is now open and began servicing local contractors and the general public on September 9. Stellar first began construction on the project in September 2018.
“The team at Stellar was easy to work with. They listened and responded to our needs, met timelines and stayed on budget,” said Chas Bowles, project manager at Ferguson. “It’s evident their decades of experience have prepared them to go above and beyond with even the most challenging project.”
Stellar has years of experience building commercial facilities and warehouses in Northeast Florida and across the world. The firm has constructed more than 10 million square feet of warehouse space in the past 10 years alone.
