about the project:
The Alexander Family Dealership was required to do upgrades to their facility per the Toyota proto-type design guidelines. T. Ross Brothers and Cornerstone Design-Architects were hired in a design-build process to demolish the existing showroom, design a new, updated showroom and offices, provide an enclosed vehicular drop-off for service, renovate the service shop, and additional bays.
Blaise Alexander requeted the project to be designed and submitted as LEED Certified. Several of the features are the use of waste oil from vehicles as a fuel source in the hot water and heating system boilers, under slab tank to capture water for recycling, and much emphasis on the indoor environmental quality with low-emitting materials, outdoor air delivery monitoring, and controllability of systems.
