SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
The main design goal for this dealership was to achieve LEED Gold Certification. The project consists of renovation of and addition to an existing Ford dealership originally built in 1987. Most of the existing structure was salvaged and reused, helping to achieve the design goals. The roof, insulation, and HVAC systems were upgraded to meet the requirements for LEED certification. The lighting system was changed to a hybrid of fluorescent and high output can lights.
A new skylight system was also included, allowing for “Daylight Harvesting”. This skylight has a reflector system that is rotated by a motor powered by a solar cell that follows the sun. This maximizes the amount of light that is brought into the building space regardless of the location of the sun. Recycled building materials were used in the interior and exterior finishes including the carpets, tiles and exterior ACM cladding. Water saving devices were also installed such as dual flush toilets and waterless urinals. The site is landscaped with native, drought resistant plants and watered by a cistern that collects the grey ground water.
