Hi, How Can We Help You?

Wondries Toyota – Alhambra, CA

We are thrilled to share the successful completion of one of our recent projects, the Wondries Toyota Dealership in Alhambra, CA. As Pro Engineering Consulting, we take immense pride in delivering innovative and efficient engineering solutions to our clients, and this project was no exception. However, it came with its fair share of challenges that put our team’s expertise and creativity to the test.

Collaborating with the renowned Whitfield Architects, our firm embarked on the ground-up design of the Wondries Toyota Dealership. One of the primary challenges we encountered was dealing with restricted ceiling spaces in the open showroom. The showroom is the heart of any dealership, and it is essential to create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for potential customers. However, the limited ceiling space posed a considerable obstacle for duct routing and proper air conditioning.

To overcome this challenge, our team engaged in rigorous planning and 3D modeling exercises. We adopted an integrated approach, working closely with the architects and other stakeholders to optimize the ductwork layout while ensuring that it remained unobtrusive and aesthetically pleasing. By leveraging our expertise in HVAC system design and analysis, we were able to find creative solutions to effectively distribute conditioned air throughout the showroom without compromising the space’s visual appeal.

Another hurdle we encountered was in the new car arrival area, which featured a roll-up door. This door was essential for convenient access, but it posed difficulties in maintaining the desired indoor temperature and air quality. Drafts and temperature fluctuations could impact the newly arrived vehicles and discomfort the staff working in the vicinity.

Our team once again rose to the occasion by implementing a comprehensive HVAC zoning strategy. We installed a specialized air curtain system, which created an invisible barrier of air that effectively controlled the influx of outside air when the roll-up door was opened. This not only maintained a comfortable indoor environment but also contributed to significant energy savings by preventing unnecessary cooling or heating losses.

Throughout the project’s development, collaboration played a key role in ensuring its success. Our close working relationship with Whitfield Architects allowed us to streamline the integration of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems into the overall architectural design seamlessly.

In addition to the technical challenges, strict adherence to local building codes and regulations was vital. Our experienced team was proactive in staying updated with the latest codes and standards, ensuring that the project was compliant from start to finish.

In conclusion, the ground-up car dealership project for Wondries Toyota presented Pro Engineering Consulting with several noteworthy challenges. However, through a combination of innovative engineering solutions, collaboration with Whitfield Architects, and unwavering dedication, we successfully designed and implemented the MEP systems that not only met the client’s expectations but also exceeded them.

We are incredibly proud of our team’s efforts in overcoming the hurdles and delivering a state-of-the-art dealership that promises both exceptional customer experiences and environmental sustainability. As we celebrate the completion of this project, we look forward to tackling more such challenges in the future and continuing to serve our clients with excellence.
