Quality Hyundai Selects Munger Construction For New Dealership Facility
State Of The Art Building Designed For An Excellent Customer Experience
By: Pat Munger Construction Company, Inc.
"We approached Munger because we remembered the excellent work they did in 1976 when they constructed an addition to our Wallingford aluminum service center", stated Joe Blichfeldt, Quality Hyundai Owner. "Then, we did our due diligence to confirm current customer satisfaction levels and after speaking with their president I felt comfortable doing business with Munger again."
Munger's design team is collaborating with Design Two Architects on the design/build plan that includes sustainable energy savings through LED lighting, SunPort daylighting systems and building envelope modeling features that include high efficiency HVAC systems. The interior features a storefront aluminum framing system and the exterior will be updated to a curtain wall framed glazing system with ACM panels installed directly over the old masonry exterior offering a clean and modern look. Both systems are designed for 1-inch clear energy efficient Low E glass.
"The City of New Haven Economic Development Commission was a great partner for this initiative", said Blichfeldt. "They made it possible for us to launch this project that will benefit New Haven through new tax revenues and jobs. UI and Munger explained the benefits of an affordable 'green' initiative and helped us to coordinate with state agencies to offset the associated costs."
"We designed genuine comfort features into our new facility", stated Blichfeldt. "Our service customers will enjoy a forest interior styled waiting area with a family and kid-friendly tone along with a separate quiet area. People who want to work while waiting will benefit from Wi-Fi and multiple workstations. The car wash bay will enable us to wash every car that comes through. Recycled water is part of our green initiative. "But let's be clear", said Blichfeldt, "In the end it's all about people and our goal is to combine a great facility with a genuine concern for our customers and their families."
"Renovating a regional post office processing center into a world class car dealership facility gives Munger the opportunity to showcase the breadth of commercial design/build services that we offer", said David DeMaio, Munger president."
