Last night our team at BM&K attended a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Clayton County Senior Services Department. The hope of this new facility is to, “enhance the quality of life for elderly citizens.” With this new building, several changes will be made to the initiative to enhance the lives of the elderly in Clayton County, such as expanding an in-home service delivery model. The programs this facility will offer are designed with an emphasis on health and wellness. This will include health screenings, exercise programs, nutrition, education, and field trips. New features include a lap swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, a community garden, and large multipurpose space for performing arts and other activities.
Located on Anvil Block Road in Ellenwood, this new Senior Center will be the fourth SPLOST-funded Senior Center in Clayton County. It will provide the opportunity for expanded services and programs that promote independence, dignity, and enhance the quality of life for older adults.
BM&K is proud to be in charge of the construction management of this new project. At BM&K we are passionate about helping communities grow. We would love to talk to you about your next project.
We Built It
The new Heard County Administration Building in Franklin, Georgia is now open! BM&K worked closely with county officials on the completion of this new facility. Located behind the Heard County Courthouse, the new 11,000 SQ FT building houses new offices for administration and county departments. The facility, as shown in photos below, was constructed with top quality finishes. The building also boasts brand new audiovisual and low voltage capabilities. It also included new access routes and parking. This upgraded facility will help make the city more efficient.
Office location Changes
Several Heard County Government Offices have moved from the Heard County Courthouse to the brand new Heard County Administration Building located at 201 Park Avenue Franklin, GA 30217. Find details of office changes here.
Our team enjoyed working closely with the county in completing this project and we hope that this new piece of the community helps to facilitate further growth and innovation. BM&K is passionate about working in and with communities. Contact us to find out how BM&K can help your community grow!
The Scope of The Project
BM&K attended the Groundbreaking Ceremony of the new Lilburn Police Headquarters and Municipal Court on Monday, August 13th. The late afternoon ceremony marked the official beginning of work on the 24,000 square foot facility. The project, designed by Precision Planning Inc., is being constructed by BM&K Construction and Engineering. This project is $4.9 million. It is being completely funded by the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax program, or SPLOST. The project is expected to be complete in 12 months.
City Leaders and Location
The city of Lilburn’s mayor, Johnny Crist, hopes that this building will be a tool to the police department that will make them more efficient. The location chosen is an area of the city that sees high traffic. The Gwinnett Daily Post Quoted the City Manager, Bill Johnsa. Johnsa Stated, “We want to build a police station that gives us a presence on the busiest corridor that we have in the city.” He added, “I think we have a daily volume (here) of about 40,000 cars, so this will give us a lot of presence and people will know where our police are. It’s also accessible and very easy to get in and out to respond to emergencies. We have a fantastic response time as it is, but I see it getting even better with this.”
In twelve months time, the new Police Headquarters will be opening their doors. BM&K looks forward to attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony and welcoming the Lilburn police force to their new facility! At BM&K we value community, and we are passionate about helping them grow.

The Braselton Parking Deck project will provide over 270 new spaces over 4 levels. The new deck is located in a Downtown setting and will merge multiple tracts, reduce several environmental issues and accommodate a Regional Windstream tele-communications facility within the limits of work. The long term plan of the facility is to bring more events and visitors to Historic Downtown. In terms of architecture, the new deck will mix the Historic Braselton Brothers Store and the adjoining Municipal Complex. The plan to construct a new Downtown Civic Center begins with the new deck.
Dunwoody City Hall Open House will be held on March 15th from 4-8:00 pm. The City of Dunwoody recently moved into its newly renovated City Hall and Police Headquarters building located at 4800 Ashford Dunwoody Road. With slightly more overall square footage than the space currently leased by the city, the modifications and upgrades to the new building came in on time and under budget. The new city hall will serve as a well-organized, efficient space for the entirety of city staff, police department, municipal court, and city chambers. Dunwoody Mayor Denis Shortal states, “We are looking forward to serving the residents and businesses of our city from a more centralized location. This building belongs to the citizens of our city and we are proud to call it our new home.”
