Curry Subaru-Hyundai Celebrates Opening of New LEED®-Registered Car Dealership
Area's first green automobile dealership makes its debut on Cortlandt Boulevard
Cortlandt Manor, NY - (May 29, 2012) Curry Subaru-Hyundai, a member of 93-year-old Curry Automotive, proudly announces the opening of its new 30,000 sq. ft. LEED®-registered car dealership as the area's first green dealership. The car dealership will be open for business on Monday, June 4.
Project partners included Architectural Visions PLLC, Mahopac, New York, GTL Construction LLC, White Plains, New York and OLA Consulting Engineers, PC, Hawthorne, New York.
Every aspect of the new building was planned in an environmentally conscious way, from the dealership's location near area bus routes to the selection of local consultants, contractors, and materials. "When we first started planning, our primary goal was to install solar panels, but once we realized what a significant and positive impact we could make on the environment, we dedicated our resources and effort toward constructing a LEED®-registered showroom," explains Bob Carinci, Curry Chief Operations Officer. Among the significant features of the new building are:
- Light-colored high-reflectivity roofing to reduce urban heat island effect
- Bio-based spray foam roof insulation for greater insulating value and minimizing air infiltration
- Insulation and high-performance glass to reduce stress on HVAC systems and allow for smaller systems
- Energy-efficient interior lighting systems to cut electricity costs
- Use of recycled and locally harvested construction materials
- Native, local, and water-efficient landscaping to protect the local eco system from invasive plant species and conserve drinking water
- Outdoor lighting to minimize light pollution beyond the property line onto adjacent residential areas
- Construction waste management plan to harvest construction waste for reuse or recycling
"Curry's main goal was to create a sustainable, healthy, and comfortable building for both customers and employees," said Bernard F. Curry, CEO/Owner, Curry Automotive. "By integrating sustainable design and energy efficiency with comfort, safety, utility, durability, economy, and aesthetics, Curry was able to achieve that goal."
The new Curry dealership is part of the "Cortlandt Boulevard" (formerly East Main Street) renaissance. Several enhancements by the Town of Cortlandt include new stone based signs and decorative street lamps to enhance the attractiveness of the major commercial corridor. Curry Automotive, along with Best Buy, funded the street lamps.
"We are very pleased that the Curry dealership will stay in Cortlandt on our Cortlandt Boulevard," says Linda D. Puglisi, Town Supervisor, Town of Cortlandt. "It provides an excellent product for consumers, quality service, and jobs, and is a source of revenue for our community. We look forward to the grand opening and wish everyone at Curry continued success."
Curry looks forward to serving as a model for environmentally conscientious business in the region and plans to begin construction of a new LEED®-registered Toyota showroom later this year. Additionally, Curry plans to support environmental education initiatives as part of the Westchester County Children's Museum's Museum Without Walls education program.
The media and area officials will be formally introduced to the building and its environmentally-conscious features at a private VIP reception mid-June.
