How Design-Build Brought Cost-Savings to Koch 33 Automotive

by  | July 25, 2018 | Featured Project |

Background

Koch 33 Automotive, based in Easton, Pennsylvania, has worked with Mowery on cutting-edge automotive facilities over the last several years. Koch chose Mowery to be their design-build contractor because of Mowery’s deep experience in the automotive market and familiarity of the Toyota brand.

 

Challenge

Collision centers are an increasing trend and growth area for automotive dealerships, and Koch 33 saw the opportunity to expand their footprint in this market. Koch partnered with Mowery to work on a new, full-service collision center along with two other projects at their Easton location. In addition, Mowery completed a renovation and expansion project for their Toyota dealership.

 

Solution

Mowery, along with the leadership team at Koch, worked seamlessly with the local, regional and national Toyota team to build an award-winning, LEED-certified facility with top-notch amenities. In 2018, Mowery will build an exciting new Ford dealership for Koch.

Koch appreciated Mowery’s values, process and leadership as complex projects were managed, expectations were exceeded and deadlines were met. Plus, the automotive business remained open and operational throughout the various projects. Mowery understood not only the automaker’s brand but also Koch’s, as well as the industry. The advanced facilities increased profitability, attractiveness to buyers and overall market presence.

 

“Mowery came highly recommended from one of our colleagues at another dealership, and we have been pleased from day one with our experience with them. They put in a lot of time and effort into preconstruction, design and getting to know our operation. Mowery also worked seamlessly with the regional and national contacts from the brands we represent. When we undertake these types of projects, it is critical that our projects be done properly, on time and that meet our budget. We truly enjoy working with Mowery, and they have given us exceptional service along the way.”
