Opening A Car Wash
Car Washes are undeniably a great business to open. Great money, easy to operate, and a steady, long-term return on your investment. That's why so many people new to the industry want to open one, and experienced operators want to open another location.
So after locating a great property, checking the demographics, and getting your financing in order, you are ready to go for it. The next step is to find a good architect to design it, followed by locating a qualified contractor to build it. Should be easy, right? Well, think again.
Car Washes are very challenging projects, and one of the most difficult and complex buildings for any architect and engineer to design correctly. Typically architects and engineers will design only a single car wash in their careers, while many will do none at all. And the challenges involved in building one can be even more overwhelming for the contractor, especially when working off a bad set of blueprints lacking critical information and details.
This often results in additional costs and delays in completing the project, hurting your bottom line and leaving you frustrated.
We are car wash experts, and specialize in innovative, eye-catching car wash designs that are both very attractive and eye-catching to potential customers, but do not cost a fortune to build or maintain. With over 80 car washes designed so far, you can be insured you will receive a highly functional site layout, outstanding building design, and accurate and detailed engineering, all placed in an comprehensive easy to understand set of blueprints that will make construction a snap.
