ISG worked with Heintz Toyota to design a new space with cohesive brand identity, sustainable features that reduce operating cost and environmental footprint, and engaging and comfortable customer interaction areas.
When opening a new Toyota dealership, the owner wanted a contemporary facility that conveys a bright, open and welcoming environment for customers and employees. In order to keep operating costs and environmental footprint down, sustainable features were desired as well.
To maintain sustainability, the exterior finish was designed with aluminum composite containing post-consumer, recycled content material, and the interior is filled with natural light and clerestory windows to reduce the electrical lighting demand during daylight hours. Electricity use is kept even further down by utilizing energy-efficient lamp and optic technologies for both interior and exterior fixtures. The showroom interior is designed to offer customers a series of logical, engaging, and comfortable interaction areas so that they experience a warmer, more welcoming environment.
