The new dealership, training center and car wash boast an inspiring, sleek design, as well as the latest mechanical equipment.

HAYWARD, CALIF. (June 24, 2022) – Slater Builders, Inc., a full-service general contractor serving Southern California and beyond, is proud to announce the completion of One Subaru of Hayward. East Bay’s newest ground-up auto dealership includes a 57,497-square-foot, two-story showroom and training center, as well as a separate 4,200-square-foot car wash and detailing building.

The dealership includes 20,000 square feet of tile, a curtain wall system, mechoshades, a wall panelized system, key machines and custom millwork. The showroom is adorned with a pergola structure and custom-built national monument structures, such as El Capitan and iconic Yosemite trees, inspiring customers to pursue adventure.

The exterior features aluminum composite metal panels and split face block, giving the dealership its distinct aesthetic. Slater Builders also outfitted a training center within the dealership with space for business and relaxation.

The service department includes 37 vehicle lifts, two alignment racks, a tire machine, tire balancer, tire carousal, parts lift elevator, two tread check machines, and an oil and compressor room.

“One Subaru of Hayward is not only extremely functional thanks to the best mechanical equipment, but it boasts a sophisticated, appealing finish,” said Devin McCafferty, General Manager of One Subaru. “This new dealership and car wash is positioned to be the premier Subaru dealership in the East Bay for years to come.”

Slater Builders engaged in an 18-month pre-construction process to optimize the project, as it was situated on a hillside under a fault line. The firm built a retaining wall and graded the site prior to commencing construction.

The project was complicated by water, which seeped into the building pad footing area from underneath the hillside. Slater positioned a French drain between the wall and the building to pump out the water.

The element continued to be a problem, unfortunately, with rainwater flooding the construction site. The team used a lime treatment to dehydrate and firm the soil to meet compaction. A Silva Cell filtration system was also installed to act as a storm drain, filtering the water and redirecting it into the main storm drain at the street level.

“Challenges at construction sites are nothing new, but it’s how you respond to them that matters,” Lizabeth S. Slater, CEO of Slater Builders, Inc., said. “I’m very proud of our Slater Builders team for remaining flexible, getting creative and ultimately getting the job done on time.”

Slater Builders is excited to celebrate the grand opening of One Subaru of Hayward with the Subaru team and the local community on Wednesday, June 29, at the pristine new facility.
