Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Rent-a-Truck Facility Kennesaw
Chandlee and Sons Construction Company LLC signed a contract with ENTERPRISE LEASING COMPANY OF GEORGIA LLC represented by Billy Giddens, CFM, on September 26, 2016 for the ground-up construction of a new facility for the rental of heavy duty and light duty trucks and cars.
The 2.12 acre site is located between State Road 293 (old highway 41) and State Road 41 in Cobb County. Architectural and engineering drawings are by Lee’s Designs and Associates, Inc. of Norcross.
This ground-up design-build project is under the expert supervision of Senior Project Manager, Kenneth Rybnikar. The scope of the work on this project includes erosion control and storm drainage, creating a detention pond and a sanitary sewer, the installation of a water system, parking lot sub-base and finish including parking striping, landscaping (seeding, shrubs and trees), and the construction of two buildings: one for the rental of autos and light duty trucks at 2,563.38 square feet and the second for the rental of heavy duty trucks at 2,890.68 square feet.
By mid-February the team was finally pouring concrete, but the site was not ready for the construction of the buildings to begin. Georgia Power was on site to relocate their power poles. A pending change order was generated as the soil where the Georgia Department of Transportation decel lane was to be located was found to be too soft. Therefore, the engineer worked on the solution to stabilize the soil by bridging it. This solution went into permitting and should be approved soon.
Steel supports for the building were being placed by early April. There was a problem with the fabrication so our vendor is solving it. Paint colors are currently out to Enterprise for their approval. The rain has caused delays quite a bit along with the delay in the steel girders. Most of the site work is complete except for paving the lot which will be done further along in the schedule.
Chandlee Holdings CEO, Seth Chandlee, visited the site on April 26 to witness the steel girders being installed for both the rent-a-car and rent-a-truck office buildings, Site preparation was ongoing.
Seth visited the site again on May 12 making these remarks, “Enterprise Rent a Car and Enterprise Rent a Truck – two brands – two buildings – one location! The construction of the ground-up buildings is underway. Chandlee and Sons Construction Company was the chosen general contractor for this national brand state-wide!” At this stage in the construction the walls are going up – soon to received their exterior and interior finishes, along with the required utilities and details. Site work is also in progress.
Through June the crew continued paving the parking lot and creating curbs, another crew began the finish on the exterior of the building. An enclosure was constructed for the carwash while some landscaping was placed. The asphalt trucks delivered their last load for the parking lot on Friday, June 30.
On August 10, Seth Chandlee visited the site and remarked that this rent-a-car/rent-a-truck business project was just over a week from completion.
This latest Enterprise facility is in Suite 1000 at 1850 Parkway Place in Marietta Georgia.
