Once the decision has been made to improve your location, a whole new series of challenges faces the petroleum retailer. Some of the basic questions Woods Consulting helps you answer include:

  • How do I lay out a new site?

  • How can I modernize an existing layout?

  • What building size makes sense?

  • Can I re-use my existing building?

  • Will the municipality approve my plans?

  • Do I need new tanks and lines?

  • How do I find a qualified contractor?

  • How can I provide my bank with an accurate cost estimate to obtain gas station financing?

Beyond these fundamental issues, there are a multitude of other factors that, addressed properly during the design and gas station construction process, will result in a facility that will provide a superior return on investment.  Some of these issues are:

  • Does my site look inviting from the street or does it look crowded and hard to navigate?

  • Is my store layout customer-friendly and does it increase sales from existing customers?

  • Is my site configured for future expansion or regulatory changes?

  • What technology should I install that will help me increase sales?

  • What building and finishing materials are both cost-effective and attractive?

  • Should I hire a general contractor?  A petroleum contractor?  Both?

  • How can I minimize downtime for my existing business?   

Woods Consulting has the knowledge and experience to help you answer these and many more important questions about your site development plans.
