A showcase in adaptive reuse, this retail location and indoor lumber yard took the place of a former GM dealership and service center. LRA provided complete MEP engineering to transform the existing dealership.
The building was previously unconditioned; adding air conditioning to the retail store meant meeting the performance requirements of Title 24. Despite the limitations of the existing envelope, the project exceeded Title 24 compliance by almost 15% better than standard, all while keeping the HVAC installation costs as low as possible.
