Principle Construction Completes Fifth Expansion for General RV in Huntley

Principle Construction Corp. has completed its third expansion in five years of the General RV space at 14000 Automall Dr. in Huntley, IL. The current expansion includes a 19,558-square-foot addition to the building, which Principle constructed in 2011 and expanded in 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2018. 

“Recreational vehicles continue to be a growing industry, so we’re happy be able to expand the space and work with General RV,” said Principle COO Mark Augustyn, who served as principal on the project. “Our team has been able to help General RV maintain a modern building with enough space for their operations for over a decade now.” 

The expansion includes 22’ clear height with 14 drive in doors on the 24-acre site. Principle installed a 60’ long paint booth which allows for minor touch ups or repainting an entire camper. The Principle team also installed a ballasted roofing system on the new structure.
