Chandlee and Sons Construction Company signed a contract on April 18, 2019 with John A. Stone of SVP Finance for the Project Verte, Inc. commercial build project.
Mimi Fernandez with Project Verte contacted Seth Chandlee, CEO of Chandlee Holdings and Founding Partner of Chandlee and Sons Construction, a short time back informing him that her firm wished to add a photography and marketing studio within the office space of their warehouse and fulfillment center in McDonough, Georgia. They needed a design and build contracting firm to meet with them as soon as possible.
Bloomberg describes Project Verte “as a developer of e-commerce platforms using blockchain technology to create participatory community” – a correct assessment. The company simply says they are “a full circle e-commerce solution built with simple, connected tools that help brands grow and directly engage consumers”.
This project is a commercial expansion build with some remodeling of the space thrown in for good measure. The Chandlee crew created a studio – a small portion was taken from the existing breakroom and the remaining breakroom space was remodeled. This commercial construction project is under the careful supervision of Project Manager, Jim Beggs.
The work began with demolition of existing breakroom walls to enlarge the space. The existing carpet and adhesive in this room were removed. The carpeted surface from the lobby into the room was covered with protective plastic during the construction.
A curved wall was constructed in the studio surfaced with drywall. Existing acoustical tile (1,648 square feet) was removed and replaced with an appropriate surface for the specified use. The ceiling was opened to install a 32 linear foot lighting truss with eight photo lights mounted on the truss. Standard light bulbs were replaced with LED Modern Daylight color bulbs to brighten the color of the emitted lighting. Epoxy was applied to the concrete floor in the studio, utilizing a white coat and a clear coat in designated areas. The walls in the studio were painted white.
The refrigerator with ice maker in the breakroom was relocated and additional outlet covers were installed. Vinyl flooring with cove base was installed in the breakroom and additional sheetrock covered walls were painted the same color as the existing walls. A store front including mullions were in stalled in the breakroom with the mullions painted black. Our crew also painted almost 2000 square feet of wall surface. A single poly carb window was installed in three separate offices.
Project Manager Jim Beggs posted on July 17, “The breakroom upgrade project is complete! All appliances are installed and ready for the enjoyment of the staff. We thank Project Verte for the opportunity to create their photography studio and breakroom. Chandlee and Sons Construction looks forward to the next time you need our assistance. Thanks, again.”
