Beltone Retail Stores
In early July 2015 Chandlee and Sons Construction Company signed design/build contracts for two Beltone Hearing Aid stores to be located in north Georgia. The first store constructed was a 1,400 square foot space located in the Castleberry Southard Crossing shopping center at 5475 Bethelview Road in Cumming. The second store at 1,100 square feet is located in the Haynes Bridge Village shopping center at 9925 Haynes Bridge Road in Johns Creek.
The architectural and engineering team for Chandlee and Sons Construction designed all the required documents using the same plan for both stores. The Cumming space already had a restroom built to ADA standards – on the plan it is located in the place of the phone and utility room. The design began with a sketch that is displayed below.
The plans for the Johns Creek location were re-submitted for approval as the general contractor who constructed the white box build-out performed work that was included in our original design plan. All details have been worked out.
Christopher Campellone, with Beltone Hearing Aid Centers, commented to Seth, “Just want you to know that your team is great to work with. You are lucky!”
The Cumming location had the dry wall up by July 28 and after a week it was about sixty percent complete. The installation of the carpet and the painting were progressing well three weeks later. Managing Partner, Jim Chandlee, was the Project Manager on this location.
The Chandlee and Sons team began the build-out of the second Beltone store on Monday, August 3 in the Haynes Bridge Village center. A Belton executive had this to say about the stores, “We are extremely pleased with the efficiency of your team. It’s the first time the municipal plan reviewers have ever told us, ‘We hired a very good GC to build our stores.’”
By August 17 both stores were a week away from receiving the furniture and equipment with the Cumming store set to install August 19 and the Johns Creek store set for two days later. “We have excellent contractors working on this project,” commented Christopher.
Beltone Johns Creek had one more inspection to go and the 100% final to pass as of September 2. It will be ready for us to present the Certificate of Occupancy any day now. The Cumming store will be ready to turn over the week of September 7.
