Lee Construction Group

Price Hyundai Showroom & Service Center

Location: Charlottesville, VA

Size: 4,450 SF

Project Start: February 2019

Owner: Price Hyundai Corp.

Architect: Little Rhino Studio

Price Hyundai selected Lee Building Company to renovate their showroom and service enter, all while keeping the Price Hyundai and Chevrolet Sales and Hyundai Service areas operational. The project was originally designed for both the Showroom and Service center to be worked on concurrently. Once construction started, we encountered unknown and unidentified underground utilities when we started to dig for the Service Center’s footings, requiring a total redesign of the plans for the Service Center while the Showroom’s renovations continued as scheduled.

The renovations to the Showroom required stripping the existing building back to the pre-engineeered metal structure and inserting new columns and joists in the front of the building to expand the Showroom floor and add a second floor for a conference room, support space, and staff breakroom. A new exterior glass cladding system was installed along with a Hyundai-designed Alucabon cladding. The Service Center was redesigned to pull the space into the Service area, providing a service writers’ drop off line, manager’s office, bathrooms, and customer waiting area.

“It was so important to have
someone to lean on, to know
that each morning I got up
that they were going to be
there doing their best job for
us and be able to handle any
situation that came up.”
