Blythe was awarded the HVAC design and installation contract for this 39,000 square foot auto dealership located in Burlington, WA. The facility included a large show room, offices, conference room, retail space, two large service bays, warehouse space and a space for washing vehicles. Blythe’s engineering department selected a cost effective HVAC system design that balanced efficient function with value. This included multiple gas fired heating and cooling units that were specifically zoned to meet the customer’s needs and provide temperature control in spaces with fluctuating occupancies. Radiant heating equipment was used to keep the shop and warehouse spaces comfortable.
A unique design challenge was the aesthetic concealment of rooftop equipment. Our engineer worked closely with Strotkamp Architects in the placement of rooftop equipment so as to reduce visibility and eliminate the need for expensive concealment screens.
