A 150,000 Sq. Ft. Dealership for Cowell

The Cowell Volkswagen facility is located at the centre of the Richmond Auto Mall. This new 150,000 sq. ft. car dealership features a 14-car showroom, 19-bay service shop, and car storage facilities. The three-storey structure is built primarily with concrete and glass, with metal panels and concrete exterior finishes.

Energy Savings are Part of the Plan

Natural lighting was a feature that the Cowell Auto Group wanted to have in their building. So a large skylight was installed above the atrium-like reception area to let sunlight illuminate the ground floor. To limit the building’s carbon footprint further, the rooftop panels were integrated into the electrical system in order to reduce the building’s external power requirements.
