March 24, 2012 - PRLog -- After a recent change of name, 802 Toyota (formerly Courtesy Toyota Scion) will be facing another huge transition; a new building. 802 Toyota currently employs over 50 Vermonters, and is expecting to grow significantly with its new state-of-the-art facility. This new edition is a green initiative for 802, with a focus on creating a building that is both environmentally friendly and self sufficient.

“We’re going to be a zero-landfill facility; we’ll throw away less garbage than the average household,” said Dave Birmingham, owner of 802 Toyota. They will be able to recycle roughly 70 percent of the former building; the materials won’t be used in the new building, but they will be salvaged and harvested to avoid dumping materials into a landfill.

Other innovative plans are ahead for 802’s new facility; there will be a rainwater harvesting system, where they will be able to harvest what flows naturally off of the roof to wash cars, said Birmingham. Also in store is “waste oil recycling”, where 802 can recycle oil from vehicles and use it to heat the building.

“We’re trying to be electricity neutral,” Birmingham explains. “We’re installing solar panels on the roof and hope to be completely self-sufficient on electricity.”

The green initiative is one focus of the new building, but also important to 802 is aiding local economy, increasing health and above all, enhancing the customer experience, said General Manager Todd Mobley. Among other additions, the 802 Toyota Service Center will be adding a covered service drive, where customers may simply drive their car in for service and won’t have to exit in the case of unfavorable weather conditions.

The brand-new 802 has just begun its construction progress, as the previous building is being torn down over the next few days. In the meantime, 802 Toyota Sales, Service and Parts will be located in its previous used car building on Berlin Mall Road, adjacent to Twin City Subaru. The new building will be opening in late 2012.
