Ipoh natives have something to be proud of, as their town will be home to the first car showroom in Malaysia that is gold-rated by the Green Building Index (GBI). Part of Ban Hoe Seng (Auto) Sdn Bhd, this Honda 3S Centre manages to conform both to Honda's corporate standards and those of the GBI.
Standout features are 60% natural daylight use through large glass openings and skylights, motion activated LEDs in certain areas to reduce power draw, natural ventilation and cross ventilation for the workshop area, and 100% potable offset for landscape and water closet flushing - which constitutes about 49% of the total water demand of the 3S centre.
Built on 2 acres of land, this 3S centre houses 19 workshop bays - 14 of which are general service bays, along with 4 general repair bays, and 1 tyre alignment bay - with a total accomodation of 60 cars per day. The showroom side of the operation is as modern as you would expect with comfortable customer lounges and the ever important complimentary customer Wi-Fi.
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Toichi Ishiyama said, “As one of the oldest Honda dealerships in Malaysia, Ban Hoe Seng (Auto) continues to impress us with their challenging spirit and successes. This award-winning dealership has now set a new benchmark by being the first to build and develop an environmentally friendly Honda 3S Centre that maximizes resource efficiency and focuses on the building’s sustainability. In Honda, we are committed to reducing the environmental footprint."
