The new Mercedes-Benz dealership in Hamilton, Ontario has given a new meaning to the word comfort, and the cars that are inside are not too shabby either, according to the Hamilton Spectator.
While the cars that are sold at the dealership may be what draws the customers in, the amenities that are available to these individuals once they are inside may be what keeps them in the building.
"(The new building) is meant to be timeless, the glass... the crisp appearance," Paul Mace, the general manager of the dealership, told the Spectator. "This is a building for the future."
The dealership features a cafe with an in-house chef, internet access, a shuttle, a boutique and a lounge area where individuals can either watch television or view the progress on their car if it is in the shop. Along with these comfortable amenities, the building is outfitted with a radiant heating system to keep customers warm during the cold Canadian winter.
A radiant heating system works well with high ceilings and large windows, as the technology provides a more even distribution of heat than a conventional system. The temperature difference between the floor and ceiling is only two-to-three degrees as opposed to the more than 10 that may exist in other systems.
