On November 3rd, Reeves Young, a commercial construction firm, held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the company’s 65th Anniversary and occupancy of their new 50,000 SF facility. Initially Reeves Young planned to lease out half of the facility, but the firm has been growing rapidly and will occupy the entire two story building. Since moving from Suwanee, GA to Sugar Hill, GA last January, Reeves Young has hired 94 employees- a trend the construction management firm sees continuing through 2018.
“Something special is happening at Reeves Young”, says CEO Eric Young, “we are growing 24% a year, expanding into new markets and growing our geographic reach – clients have seen what we do and they are giving us opportunity to build great projects – this year we are renovating Centennial Olympic Park and Chastain Amphitheater and building a high-rise hotel in Nashville. We’ve hired great people and they are building the business.”
Reeves Young was founded by Bill Reeves in 1952 with the purchase of one of the first hydraulic excavators in the area. This new technology changed the region’s construction capabilities and set the tone of entrepreneurialism that still leads the company today. Reeves Young provides vertical (buildings), horizontal (turn-key site development) and Water Resource (water treatment/recycling) construction services. Their portfolio features projects for Government, Higher Education, Faith-based and Corporate clients. They are pioneers of eco-engineered sustainable, on-site water treatment facilities (known as WaterHubs) for university and corporate campuses.
