The Holiday Stationstore at 4601 Hiawatha Avenue was destroyed amid the civil unrest in May 2020. Shortly after, Holiday owner Circle K Stores submitted plans to rebuild. A new 3,913-square foot convenience store building replaced the former 1,048-square foot building. In addition, the project included a 1,304-square foot standalone car wash building.
The design took place amid the COVID-19 pandemic which presented unusual and unexpected challenges to which our team reacted as effectively as possible. Nelson-Rudie was fully prepared to provide our employees the means of working remotely to maintain a safe work environment. Our team collaborated closely with the architect and other consultants transitioning to web meetings, email and phone calls to meet project milestones and incorporate the prototypical requirements of a Holiday Stationstore in a non-prototypical building with a tight layout and unusual building shape with specific utilities and site requirements.
Nelson-Rudie was recognized by Finance & Commerce with a Top Project Award for this project.
Circle K is a subsidiary of Quebec-based Couche-Tard, one of the world’s leading convenience store retailers. Our company has a long history of convenience store work having completed 400+ projects for Holiday Companies. In 2017, Holiday was acquired by Alimentation Couche-Tard and became part of the Circle K family of stores.
