Jackson EMC is breaking ground October 5 on a new customer and administration building on its Lawrenceville campus. The facility will be built by Carroll Daniel Construction Group of Gainesville, Ga., and construction is expected to be complete in August, 2016.
The new facility will provide an easy-access customer entrance directly on Buford Drive, near the intersection with Highway 316. “Jackson EMC has seen tremendous growth in Gwinnett County over the past few decades, and we need a facility that will serve the needs of this growing area,” said Randy Dellinger, district manager.
The new $5 million facility, designed by Millard Architects, Inc., will be constructed on land owned by Jackson EMC on Buford Drive, adjacent to the current offices located on Swanson Drive. It will include a 16,583 square foot administrative building, with a drive-thru canopy and two drive-thru lanes, an auditorium, and two electric vehicle charging stations. Dellinger said that throughout the design process the cooperative has kept an eye on costs to construct an efficient and economical facility.
“By using Carroll Daniel Construction, we’ve honored a commitment we made at the beginning of this process to select a contractor from the region we serve,” said Dellinger. The ten-month construction project is expected to create jobs in the local economy. Carroll Daniel has E-verified project workers, and hired sub-contractors from the area who are qualified and competitively priced.
Jackson EMC’s Lawrenceville office serves more than 110,000 meters in Gwinnett County, roughly half of the cooperative’s total number of meters across a 10-county region.
Founded in 1946, Carroll Daniel Construction is in its third generation of family leadership and is one of Georgia's fastest growing commercial construction companies.
