Foreman-Blair Buick GMC Dealership Celebrates New Showroom

Please join us as we roll out the red carpet and celebrate with Foreman-Blair Buick, GMC, Cadillac and the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce at Business After Hours on Thursday, November 1.

Jim Foreman has witnessed much change at his location on E. Columbia Street since becoming a General Motors dealer in October of 1970. His dealership has received many accolades over the years and has maintained a reputation as one of the most outstanding automobile dealers in the area. In 1982, the showroom greeted customers with a warm and inviting atmosphere – receiving a renovation that made it the most up-to-date showroom in Springfield. Exactly 30 years later, Foreman has just completed facility upgrades that were rolled out by GM for dealerships nationwide. The Essential Brand Elements (EBE) program is an effort by GM to improve the appearance of all dealerships, creating uniformity among the brands.

Kapp Construction was selected to renovate Foreman-Blair Buick, GMC, Cadillac and bring it up to the new EBE standards. Kapp remodeled 4,000 square-feet, giving the showroom, service drive and interior customer areas a complete face lift, along with the exterior façade. With all new energy-efficient lighting, new storefront windows with energy-efficient glass and additional insulation above the showroom area, Foreman-Blair is excited about their updated facility     

“We are delighted how it has turned out. Kapp Construction has been great to work with and have not caused us one bit of delay. Kapp worked days or nights as needed to not disrupt our business,” said Foreman. “We knew our facility needed updated, and the energy and excitement gained from this project has been outstanding”.
