Walker Volkswagen - Metairie
This state-of-the-art design build project helped to kick off a new Walker Volkswagen design and marketing campaign. The project was extremely complex, but Woodward worked through the specifications with the client to deliver the futuristic curtain-wall designed building within budget and on time.
Walker Volkswagen – Metairie has a two-story showroom with an angled front curtain wall. Like other Walker Motors projects, the dealership has an abundance of glass at the storefront which enables the extensive $225,000 lighting system to highlight vehicles in the showroom and on the outside display. Additionally, a modern service and “get-ready” building attaches at the rear, giving Walker Motors a real showplace for the new dealership.
This project received an 2002 Excellence in Construction Award (Commercial Category, $2-5M) from the Associated Builders and Contractors New Orleans Bayou Chapter.
