Local Firm Engineers Updated Downtown Dealership

In phase two of a four phase project aimed at modernizing the old industrial district, Larry H. Miller Downtown Spokane will soon celebrate the grand re-opening of Larry H. Miller Downtown Toyota. The endeavor brought together a team consisting of Layton Construction Company based out of Salt Lake City, UT; John Mahoney Architect, LLC of Tempe, AZ; and Whipple Consulting Engineers of Spokane Valley.

WCE has taken on the Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture for the entire downtown campus. With a sewer system that was constructed in the 1890's, that's quite a feat. The next phase of the project will be to repurpose the old Toyota building to become the new Larry H. Miller Downtown Honda building site. Larry H. Miller Downtown Toyota Spokane originally opened their doors in March 2011. The dealership reopened on September 12.
