Brown Automotive now has a brand new facility, and it's constructed with the environment in mind.

The new three story building, along Route 29 near Wal-Mart, is built with three different rooftops to maximize space. That means less impact on the terrain. The service department was also built into a hill, which creates climate control.

"It was better use of land and it was also so we didn't have to go up here and tear up more of the land and the terrain in order to put our service department in there," said sales director, Jay Malone.

The structure holds most of its inventory indoors using decks.
