Buerkle Hyundai Rebrand and Upgrade

CNH Architects has a reputation for building strong client relationships and earning repeat business. The Buerkle Automotive Group is one of those repeat clients. The latest of those projects being Buerkle Hyundai in St. Paul.


Prompted by an image upgrade and rebrand by Hyundai Corporation, Buerkle tasked CNH with designing updates for the entire facility including showroom, vehicle service bays, lounge and reception areas, and the exterior. As Hyundai was encouraging many of these updates, CNH and team needed to meet all the brand’s pre-determined guidelines and timelines.


Significant focus was placed on the showroom, which will be relocated and increased by an 11,320 sf addition. The space will employ an entirely new aesthetic to meet Hyundai brand standards.


Vehicle service bays are being redesigned and expanded with an 8,800 sf addition. This addition allows for interior-loaded service bays, eliminating the long rows of garage doors existing on each side of the current service wing.


The rest of the building exterior and interiors will be refreshed to meet updated brand standards and provide a fresh and consistent color scheme. The design updates also allowed the opportunity to upgrade building safety by installing a fire suppression system and a new underground stormwater treatment system.


CNH is working with Langer Construction and Larson Engineering on this project. Project completion is scheduled for Spring 2023.

Burnsville Fire Station No. 1: Coming Soon

CNH’s largest fire station to date, the City of Burnsville’s Fire Station No. 1 is home to a crew of all full-time firefighters and more than 44,000 SF with 10 apparatus bays. Firefighter safety was one of nine top priorities for the station. Multiple contamination zones and a designated de-contamination area will allow firefighters to keep contaminated equipment and clothing in the apparatus bay until decontaminated. Another priority in the design was firefighter mental health. A warning system that slowly ramps up with alert tones and lighting while only alerting responding staff ensures firefighters are not awoken in an abrupt manner. The station includes areas for relaxation with different lighting to promote natural sleep rhythms, as well as a yoga studio and meditation garden. Extensive firefighter training features including Firefighter 1 and advanced training elements are another highlight of the station.
