Chandlee Construction Company signed a contract with 33 South Main, L.L.C., owners Eric and Angie Bendiks, for construction on their commercial property – a six-story building (including cellar) at 33 South Main Street in Alpharetta called Liberty Hall.
Seth Chandlee, Chief Executive Officer of Chandlee Holdings and Founding Partner of Chandlee Construction Company, commented on his Facebook page in January 2019, “What an honor! Chandlee Construction is the official general contractor on the Liberty Hall building. The scope is to finish the basement (cellar), plus perform detailed work on floors one through five, and complete the exterior of this historic, beautiful building including site work. We are committed to providing the quality of work that is expected from our firm. Let’s do this!”
The client changed general contractors choosing Chandlee Construction Company to complete this important multi-scope commercial construction project. Owner, Angie Bendiks filed the official papers changing the contractor with the City of Alpharetta. Our Project Manager on this project is Chuck Fatheree and Mary Chandlee is our Project Administrator.
On March 1, Seth Chandlee remarked on the company Facebook page, “Liberty Hall, the façade is almost redone, along with the hardscape, the siding and paint." Two weeks later her posted, “The finishes are moving along at 33 Main Street in Alpharetta. We have finished work on all floors except the second, this floor will be finished last as it had the largest scope of work to perform.”
“Visit Liberty Cigars on April 13 for their soft opening in downtown Alpharetta! This is also the birthday of Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson. They will be selling Thomas Jefferson cigars at their location in a gorgeous new building at 30 Main Street,” posted Seth Chandlee on Facebook, April 2.
The Historic Downtown Review Board approved our landscape plan on April 5. Our crews continue with upgrades in all the common areas on all five floors.
Our crews pressure washed, patched and repaired the exterior walls (where needed); sanded and painted them to a level 5 finish; and cleaned and painted railing to lower cellar doorway. We completed all hardscape masonry work along with existing and proposed retaining wall structures including lower cellar slab and drain area that was bricked. A concrete dumpster slab was poured and sloped to the drain, two bollards were added at the entrance, and gates were installed at the front of the slab. The exterior awning was completed and painted. We sanded and sealed all exterior doors, thresholds and windows; finished all exterior ventilation; and landscaped according to the approved plans. Exterior signage was ordered and placed on the building, a wood privacy fence was installed around the dumpster enclosure, the ‘land fill’ area in the back of the property was cleaned up, and existing job trailers were removed.
Our crews made repairs in tenant spaces, the cellar, common areas, hallways and stairs. Repairs were made to the drywall, then skimmed and sanded to a level 5 finish. Flush mount fixtures were installed at the stairs. We trimmed out HVAC vents, sprinkler head vents, and where all lighting, electrical, and fire alarm components penetrated floors, walls and ceilings (gaps were patched or face plated). Railings, steel staircase risers, and exposed stair-tread faces were cleaned, and then painted to a quality finish. All concrete was cleaned and sealed with matt or satin sealer to provide a cleanable surface. We verified floor finish for the staircases, if carpet, it will be selected and signed off by the client. Hardwood floors were professionally cleaned and waxed – we recommended that the clients cover floors with rugs or runners especially near staircases and elevators. All walls, ceilings, railings and exposed metal were painted. We performed this work after hours thoroughly cleaning everywhere worked was performed that day without disturbing the tenants.
As work was completed, Chuck had the area professionally cleaned and called for final building and fire inspections. This project passed inspections in stages as work was completed. The owners placed furniture and décor items as the rooms were finished and then opened the rooms for use.
Seth Chandlee, Chief Executive Office of Chandlee Holdings and Founding Partner of Chandlee Construction Company, remarked, “Our firm recently installed this product in the extensive parking lot of the Liberty Hall building in downtown Alpharetta, Georgia. The days of asphalt and concrete are numbered. This product is used in airports, military bases, Google campuses and at Whole Food Markets, as well as many other eco-conscious companies who want to protect the earth. It is good to be involved with construction products and methods that are earth-friendly!” Chandlee Construction is the official installer for TrueGrid for the state of Georgia.
