SIMOS Insourcing Solutions
Chandlee and Sons Construction Company was chosen as the commercial contractor for a series of high-end tenant-finish projects in John Wieland’s Braeburn Village, a mixed use development in the Crabapple community of Alpharetta, Georgia. This third project for Chandlee and Sons Construction at Braeburn Village was a two-story, southern style building that was the showpiece Atlanta headquarters for SIMOS Insourcing Solutions.
Every detail of this tenant finish project was constructed to the owner’s precise specifications by Seth Chandlee and Jim Chandlee, and their team of contractors from Chandlee and Sons. The style of this building is a head on collision between classic southern style and industrial chic. The finishes include wrought iron, brick and antique wood beams. The beautiful design was completed using only the best, most lavish finishes. The interior includes a variety of carefully constructed custom-built furniture pieces. Joshua Chandlee, Seth’s older brother, was in town during the time of this project, therefore, he participated in the construction.
The interior walls are constructed of brick laid in specific patterns and clap board panels painted white. The balusters and treads of the custom designed stairway are constructed from two-hundred-year-old reclaimed hardwoods with railings made of wrought iron. The same wood was installed as beams on the painted coffered ceiling. Hardwood floors made from Brazilian teak are laid throughout the offices and kitchen, and the restrooms and private shower are tiled in stone. The custom cabinets in the employee kitchen and the hidden coffee bar are topped in granite as are several pieces of the hand-built furniture. Additional custom cabinets and book cases are placed throughout the office spaces that are located on the second floor. Sound dampening cubicles have been installed in one large room on the same floor.
This personal assessment of the work performed by Chandlee and Sons was written by Donna Vassil, the Vice President of Administration at Simos, to co-owner, Jim Chandlee: Dear Jim, I want to commend you and your staff of Chandlee and Sons Construction on the wonderful efforts of delivering the 12220 Birmingham Highway Building 60 in perfect and beautiful condition. The owner noticed and appreciated your attention to detail and the relentless determination to release a quality building on time and under budget. I know we made endless changes and I appreciated that with all of the various changes you were able to rework the numbers to help us stay in budget. The quality of the craftsmanship of you and your team’s work is evident in that you stand behind your name with pride and expect nothing but perfection. It was a fun experience working with you and I anticipate calling you when I am ready to gut out my outdated kitchen at home. If you need any future references for prospects, please don’t hesitate to call me. I wish you continued success!
