Tri-City Auto Recovery || Design Award 2004

From a modest beginning comes a marvelous finished product that’s not your typical metal building. Tri-City Auto Recovery (TCAR) in rejuvenated Glenville, New York has raised the bar to new heights for the gateway into this community.

TCAR is a family owned repossession business. As headquarters for the 13 satellite offices, the Owners needed to incorporate office space, warehouse, and high security vehicle storage while enhancing their image. With a 14,500 square foot footprint the space requirements were met. Offices comprise 6,600 square feet of space. Included in the design of this area are; large community space, private offices, conference room and kitchen. The warehouse area covering 7,900 square feet involved a 70 foot clear span, two secure storage spaces under a mezzanine and a large open vehicle storage area.

Incorporating masonry, large arched architectural aluminum windows with tinted glass and detailed canopies onto American’s skeleton frame, this is an eye catching design that changed the hearts of a skeptical Planning Board.
