Smart Luxury Motors of Quad Cities

Bush Construction had the distinct pleasure of building the Smart Luxury Motors of the Quad Cities automotive facility that is home to Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Volkswagen. The brand-new building features state-of-the-art design and functionality for the sales and maintenance departments, consisting of open full glass with high-end tile, paint, and ceiling finishes. This project is part of Lujack’s expansion project and is located on the corner of 53rd Street and Eastern Avenue in Davenport.

Green Family Hyundai

This spacious new Green Family Hyundai car dealership features a glass atrium showroom, service write-up drives, quick-lube bays, service department, detail department and parts department. The dealership is also complete with a fully automatic car wash. The dealership has installed an innovative system that uses waste-oil from oil changes as heating fuel. These waste products never have to leave the facility, since Green Hyundai stores the oil in a 7,000-gallon tank. The waste-oil is used to fuel forced-air furnaces, which heat the shop and service areas. Green Hyundai also uses rooftop natural gas heating units to warm the administrative/office areas.

Zimmerman Honda

Zimmerman Honda is a new car dealership that features a spacious showroom, standard and express service bays, and an automatic car wash bay. Zimmerman Honda features an efficient system that uses waste oil from oil changes as heating fuel. The oil is stored in a 6,000-gallon storage tank, so it never has to leave the facility. Zimmerman Honda uses radiant floor heating in its automotive shop and detail areas. Also, the dealership uses rooftop natural gas heating units to warm the administrative/office areas.

MetroLINK | Transit Maintenance Facility

MetroLINK, Rock Island County’s Metropolitan Mass Transit bus service, needed a larger, updated space. This $22 million, 150,000 SF facility houses all MetroLINK’s administrative and maintenance offices, training areas and fitness center. Diesel & CNG fueling, paint booths, vehicle lifts, a bus wash, vehicle lubrication system, a methane gas detection system and cranes and lifts were some of the components of this project.

The goal of this project was to create a LEED Silver Certified facility featuring a PV Solar Array System, a Solar Thermal Hot Water System, a Water Reclamation System at the bus wash, bio-swales, native grasses, management of construction waste, and the use of recycled materials.

The Maintenance Facility also featured some unique systems such as Diesel & CNG Fueling and Management Systems, paint booths, vehicle lifts, cranes & hoists, a Bus Wash System, Vehicle Lubrication Systems, and a Methane Gas Detection System.

Due to the Owner’s desire for sustainable construction and the unique function of the completed building, there were many challenging components associated with this project. With the help of our highly regarded team of subcontractors and suppliers, who are recognized leaders in their respective fields, Bush Construction rose to the challenge.
