FUEL-FREE FOR THE FIRST TIME

Sheetz

First Fuel-Free

LDG collaborated with Sheetz to create a custom, fuel-free store located on the ground floor of University Place near West Virginia University. At just over 15,000 square feet, this store features a large grocery area, full-sized kitchen, beer cave, wine shop, food service and expanded indoor/outdoor seating, all of which were focused around creating a one-of-a-kind customer experience. LDG has also been an advisor to Sheetz’s sustainability program and completed several Site Designs for traditional, ground-up Stores.

The challenge this client presented was a program that was in expansion mode and they needed to open several stores quickly. As the Project Manager working closely with the client, David Drouhard was able to successively open over 60 locations within in a one-year period that consisted of both ground up buildings and takeover properties. This included managing a full scope of services consisting of test fit layouts, civil, architectural, structural, MEP, and permitting.
