Now Mart Gas & Groceries / Tommy Car Wash
New Hope, Minnesota
Shingobee provided construction of the new Now Mart Gas & Groceries convenience store and fuel station during the fall and winter of 2018-19, followed by the Tommy’s Express Car Wash during the spring and summer of 2019. It is the first vehicle wash in Minnesota to use a combination of recycled used wash water and rainwater captured from the impervious surfaces on the site to wash vehicles.
Following demolition of an existing building and clearing the site, construction started with an enormous amount of site work for the storage tanks required for the water reclamation system. A total of 12 underground tanks were installed at the site for petroleum, propane, rainwater collection, and the water treatment system.
The owners desired a unique design, resulting in atypical finishes and lighting on the interior and exterior of the store.

This is the second project Shingobee has provided for the Robbins Partnership, a local, family-owned business with three fuel and service sites in the Twin Cities west metro.
