Reeves Young, one of the top commercial contractors of technically challenging heavy civil, multi-story commercial and water reclamation projects throughout the Southeast, held a groundbreaking ceremony on July 16 for its new corporate headquarters. The new 2-story Class-A office building, located on Peachtree Industrial Blvd. is the first of its kind in Sugar Hill. Southern Wall Systems, one of the most prominent stucco and EIFS subcontractors in the Southeast will also occupy the building.
Reeves Young, founded as Reeves Contracting in 1952 by Bill Reeves, has grown 18-22 percent per year for the past five years and currently has more than 100 employees with plans to expand. Because its new office is twice the size of its previous area, the new place can properly support their growth.
“Everything we do – from 30 feet below the ground to 30 floors above – is all about the people,” said Eric Young, Reeves Young’s CEO/President. “Our commitment to our employee’s quality of life has allowed us to build the best team in the business. We look forward to growing Reeves Young in Georgia and the Southeast.” “We are excited to be building the first and only Class-A office space in Sugar Hill,” said Reeves Young Chairman, Dean Reeves. “The City of Sugar Hill and Gwinnett County are a committed partner of Reeves Young, and we look forward to bringing jobs and economic development to the area.”
The new Reeves Young office space will include a fitness center, spacious lunchroom and breakrooms, all of which were designed to give employees a comfortable and modern workspace. This building was designed with the objective of reducing its carbon footprint and the state-of-the-art technology integrated throughout is one of the ways Reeves Young hopes to reach this energy efficient solution.
Fowler Design Associates is joining Reeves Young in the construction of the new building. The corporate office is expected to open in fall 2016.
