Design Features/Services Provided:
This project consists of a new Showroom, Business Office and Service Department on an existing site for Limbaugh Toyota in Ensley, AL. The existing site was limited as the existing dealership is located on the same site as the new building – keeping existing Sales and Service operations intact during construction. The new building is approximately 36,000 square feet, which includes16,000 square feet Showroom / Sales / Parts, 2,950 square feet of Business office space, and 16,000 square feet of Service building. All parts of the building are designed to meet current Toyota Image II Standards.
The Showroom building consists of the New Car Showroom with double height ceilings, a Customer Waiting room adjacent to Service Write-Up offices, New Parts and New Parts storage with mezzanine, full glass Sales offices, Financing offices, and Management offices, as well as New Car Delivery space. All finishes are consistent with Toyota Image II Standards.
The site allowed for a second story business office accessible from Showroom level via stair and from parking on the upper level for private entry / exit. Business transactions, Management, Break Rooms, and File Storage occur on this level.
The Service Department consists of a two-lane Service reception directly adjacent to glass Service Write-Ups. This space has a drive-thru feature from the front and back of the building. The Service Department proper has 22 bays, including electronic alignment, in-ground lifts, in-ground exhaust system, ceiling mounted oil extraction / fill system, and tech lighting. There is a directly adjacent tool and tire balancing room, breakroom and toilet rooms, and oil equipment room. All spaces are conditioned with polished concrete floors, painted exposed structure, high speed door access from the exterior and large volume fan system.
