Munger Construction Builds Kia Branded Gallery Facility For Premier Kia
Building Renewal Project Modernizes And Expands Existing Facility
By: Pat Munger Construction Company, Inc.
Munger renovated and modernized the original building and expanded it with new construction resulting in a seamless and fully integrated 18,100 sq. ft. facility that meets Kia's requirement for a contemporary and bold elegance while enhancing the customer experience from sales through service. Highlights include the largest Kia showroom and the only Kia Parts Boutique in Connecticut, a weather protected drive through service lane, an internet café, and many other customer-centric features.
"We are proud to have been part of this Building Renewal project," said David DeMaio, Munger president. "It was a collaborative effort between Premier Kia, Kia designers, Munger and John A. Matthews Architecture, who took ownership of their design, working through details requiring revisions from plan drawings to actual construction."
Quadrupling Premier Kia's capacity sets the stage for sales and service revenue growth. Customers enjoy an exceptional buying and service experience. An outstanding work environment enables Premier Kia to attract, motivate and retain the highest quality employees. As one of two New England and 62 national Kia Branded Gallery facilities, Kia touts the Premier Kia facility as one of its finest.
"This was not the typical experience one would expect from a construction company," said Bob Alvine, Premier Kia President. "I had extreme confidence that I could operate my day to day business while the Munger team handled the complexities of this large project. This building and the entire project exceeded my expectations"
