“In early August 2016, the North Atlanta Trade Center officially became the domain of Chandlee and Sons Construction Company. The Boat, RV, Gun and Antique Shows venue will be no more at this location. This is now the home of the ENTERPRISE VEHICLE PROCESSING FACILITY through a cosmetic uplift,” commented Seth Chandlee, CEO of Chandlee Holdings.
Seth toured the property on August 12, 2016, taking photos of the expansive property and the interiors. Chandlee Electric’s Manager, Andy Cook, also photographed the property for his purposes on August 16. Carey Hughes, our Senior Project Manager, supervised this commercial renovation project with site assistance from Mike McKinney.
Work soon began with the initial scope to build-out one office space – framing new walls, adding sheetrock, carpeting, and acoustical ceiling tiles, along with a new HVAC system and plumbing components. The electrical contractor upgraded all electrical components inside the building and on the property.
After this work was complete an outside vendor came on site to install of a new sprinkler system throughout the expansive space. The client contracted with us for additional work to be performed on site. Permitting this new work created a delay. Over the next few months the electrical contractor installed a 10,000-volt electric fence around the entire perimeter and the Chandlee construction teams made repairs to the parking lot where water was standing, constructed a guard shack at the main entrance, added an irrigation system and installed landscaping including shrubbery. This portion of the work received the Certificate of Occupancy on May 10, 2017.
Additional work has been performed since the client occupied the building including replacing all the site lighting. Two acres of the parking lot were resurfaced. A secondary fence (chain link security fence) was installed around the entire property. Curbing and gutters were added, the parking lot was paved, additional utilities have been installed, and more guard shacks placed. Our crew redesigned the main entrance and created a rear tractor trailer entrance. Several new overhead doors were added at various locations on the building to increase the number of entrances for vehicles to enter. All locks were replaced, and new vehicle barriers were created as anti-theft measures.
In late March 2019, a new electric gate and motors were installed, and four trees were removed. Part of the security fence was deactivated for a night due to work, but Chandlee and Sons provided a guard. The work was completed the following day, and the Guard Dog security system was reconnected.
The Enterprise Vehicle Processing Facility is located at 700 Jeurgens Court in Norcross, Georgia.
