Lift Truck Center
Kansas-based Lift Truck Center (who represents Toyota), challenged the design team to create an operations center in Springfield, Missouri that would improve circulation and flow between the various departments, while keeping flexibility related to growth. Springfield, Missouri’s Lift Truck Center is a 34,000-square foot industrial facility that sells and services Toyota and similar brand utility vehicles and forklifts. The facility includes a showroom, sales + executive offices, warehouse, parts + service workshop, and a technician training room.
It was the client’s desire to utilize a maintenance free material yet provide a tasteful composition that would represent the organization’s industrial appeal. In response, the use of glass, color, form, and varying metal panels resulted in a facility that is reflective of the standards and mission that make up the success and progressive operations of Lift Truck Center.
