Paxton Street, Harrisburg, PA
The planning and design concepts for additions and renovations at Faulkner’s Harrisburg facility were based upon enhancing the customer’s experience as well as improving the building’s energy efficiency. Faulkner selected Professional Design & Construction, Inc. to provide single-source planning, architectural and construction services to create the new six-bay customer drive-through drop-off area to minimize the customer’s wait time and improve customer convenience. Additional customer enhancements included the enclosed service advisor area for consultation and scheduling, as well as the customer lounge and reception area. The total renovation of the automobile showroom included energy saving improvements such as thermal insulation, not solely for the roof, but also throughout the building’s existing exterior walls. The conversion of the building’s heating system from 100% electricity to gas and the installation of new thermal showroom windows greatly reduced heat loss and improved energy conservation.
