Dahl Automotive, founded in 1911, continues to expand their dealership presence along the Minnesota/Wisconsin border, opening the Dahl Honda dealership in Onalaska, Wisconsin. Reuniting with Gries Architectural for the design of a new building and iSpace Environments for interior furniture & custom millwork applications, they have opened for business in the summer of 2020.
Mark Drach, iSpace Environments Retail Sales, recalls the longstanding relationship with Dahl Automotive, having completed 7 dealership locations along with their Holmen, WI headquarters in 2018.
Unique solutions required for this dealership location included a customized service counter with top-opening tambour-door filing solutions and specialized key storage compartments. Stephanie Serre, iSpace Environments Retail Designer, works closely with the dealership team to assure furniture, finishes and equipment specifications will be approved by the auto manufacturer, Honda.
Though construction and installation occurred during the pandemic closures, the project experienced almost no delays. “The strong partnerships we have with manufacturers and millwork fabricators helped to keep everything on track,” shares Deb Rhody, iSpace Environments Retail Project Manager. “We do everything to keep projects on schedule to meet the customers opening date.”
