Tuesday night Brookhaven city leaders moved closer towards making the plans for a new Public Safety Building a reality when they approved a construction contract for the project with BM&K. This new facility will be located at 1793 Briarwood Road on a 19-acre tract of land. This new addition to the Brookhaven community will feature state-of-the-art amenities and room to grow for the Brookhaven Police Department (BPD) and Municipal Court. As an added bonus, the Public Safety Building will be located adjacent to the signature trailhead for the Peachtree Creek Greenway. This proximity of police to the greenway will provide enhanced security for the area.
The construction contract for the $15 million facility is funded with SPLOST proceeds, approved by voters in November 2017. The new building will be twice the size of the current police headquarters with over 33,000 square feet and room for 168 parking stations. An article by the City of Brookhaven detail that, “The building will be outfitted with amenities that coincide with the Sustainable Brookhaven initiative including having geothermal heating and cooling, and high-efficiency glass windows. The property will also have EV charging stations available for public use and for electric police vehicles.”
Mayor John Ernst stated in an article published by the City of Brookhaven, “The addition of this new building reflects the City’s vision to invest in and grow our physical resources to meet the needs of the residents and employees. The new public service building plays an important dual role: to provide adequate space for the BPD and Municipal Court and serve as a safety guardian at the trailhead of the new Peachtree Creek Greenway. The old facility had long been inadequate in terms of accommodating our police and court system. Not only will we now be able to meet these needs, but this new facility should prove to be an important catalyst for redevelopment in this area of the City.”
Due to be completed by the summer of 2021, the new public safety building will be a welcomed addition to the Brookhaven landscape. An official groundbreaking for the new building will be held later this year.
A new cornerstone of the Historic District of Braselton, the new parking deck located at the corner of Highway 53 and Davis Street, is complete. This project is the first step towards constructing a new Downtown Civic Center for the city. The deck provides over 270 new spaces on 4 plus levels. Parking at the new deck is free. The intention of the new facility is to provide a central location that gives access to annual events such as the Fourth of July fireworks show and the Toast of Braselton. The long term plan of the facility is to bring more events and visitors to Historic Downtown. The facility was funded through Jackson County SPLOST and Braselton Urban Development Agency bonds. Parking will be free to the public.
The new deck blends the architectural styles of the Historic Braselton Brothers Store and the adjoining Municipal Complex. This design-and-build project posed several challenges: merging multiple tracts, mitigating several environmental issues and accommodating a Regional Windstream tele-communications facility within the limits of the work, among others.
The full scope of services that BM&K provided was the design and build of all construction, civil engineering, and permitting. They also provided site and utility construction services as well as land acquisition services.
Don Clerici, BM&K Owner and Founder, states, “We are proud that we were chosen for the construction of the new downtown Braselton parking deck and look forward to future opportunities to work in the Braselton community.”
After a long search for the right piece property city and county officials, representatives from the Cherokee Fire and Emergency Services, and the BM&K team gathered together last Tuesday, June 4th, for the groundbreaking of North Canton’s new fire station department No. 9. BM&K is proud to announce that Cherokee County and the City of Canton has chosen BM&K Construction and Engineering to construct the new facility.
The current North Canton Station No. 9 was built in the 1970s by the North Canton Volunteer Fire Department. The new station is long overdue, though the current one has served its purpose. The new station will have much-needed room and equipment. One essential update that will be in the new facility are the three bays adequate in size for ladder trucks. The fire station was originally home to a force of volunteer firefighters. As the county has moved toward a force of full-time firefighters the need for adequate housing for those firefighters on 24-hour shifts has become imperative.
This new station is scheduled to be completed by Spring of 2020. The new fire station will be located on a piece of property along Ga. Highway 140 north of downtown Canton. It will be 11,600 square feet, with three bays that will be large enough to accommodate a ladder truck. The new station will comfortably house 12 firefighters, and have plenty of storage space for equipment.
Officials celebrated this next big step towards opening the new station and are excited for the hard-working members of the Station No. 9 crew who have served the community and will benefit from this new facility. They look forward to seeing how the new station better supports the city and the county in the future.
In an article from Cherokee County and Fire & Emergency Services Jud Martin, Capital Projects Project Manager for Cherokee County, said, “The facility is designed for ease of maintenance of operability. It will also provide safer living conditions and will allow firefighters to have a quicker response to emergency incidents.”
Don Clerici, BM&K Owner and Founder, states “We are proud to be chosen for the construction of the new North Canton Fire Station No. 9 and look forward to the new and exciting opportunity to work in the Canton Community.”
Braselton, Georgia, February 13, 2019—BM&K is proud to announce that the City of Rome has chosen BM&K Construction and Engineering for the pre-construction and construction services for the indoor tennis facility at the Rome Tennis Center at Berry College.
Currently the Rome Tennis Center at Berry College is a 60 court facility on a 30-acre site. The center is comprised of USTA standard asphalt courts and includes six NCAA regulation courts, three center courts for tournament and collegiate play, and one exhibition court. The new indoor tennis facility will be one of the largest in the nation. The driving force for the construction of the six indoor courts is to make Rome Tennis Center a competitive bidder for major national events, which typically stipulate the availability of indoor courts in the event of bad weather. Rome was chosen to host the 2020 and 2021 ACC championships and will need to have the indoor complex completed in time for the first of those tournaments in April of 2020.
Don Clerici, BM&K Owner and Founder, states “We are proud to be chosen for the construction of the new indoor tennis facility and look forward to the new and exciting opportunity to work in the Rome Community.”

We are honored to announce that the City of Rome has chosen BM&K Construction and Engineering for the pre-construction and construction services for the indoor tennis facility at the Rome Tennis Center at Berry College.
Rome is the most active tennis city per capita in the United States.
Rome was chosen to host the 2020 and 2021 ACC championships and will need to have the indoor complex completed in time for the first of those tournaments in April of 2020.
We look forward to working in on this project and in this community!
This three million dollars, 9,000 square-foot
As we constructed this beautiful facility on this small site, we were faced with grade challenges and the task of working in proximity to busy Concord Road. The confined space required us to utilize our expertise in timing the delivery of materials while staging the construction of the site walls and earthwork.
Not only did we construct a facility that will aesthetically keep up with its fast-changing environment, we also built the interior featuring durable, time-tested materials. An important part of this project was making the station inviting to its crews which we did by expanding the kitchen and dining space allowing more room for tailored meal prep.
It’s an honor to share this project with you. I hope we have peaked your interest in BM&K and we would love the opportunity to show you what we can do in your community.
This year the park in the city of Lilburn will be undergoing several renovations. The park will be getting new restrooms, a new playground, and a new parking area. This park is a community center used daily by walking groups, book clubs, and pet owners. It is also host to a number of local events such as Sparkle in the Park on the 4th of July, the Rock in the Park Concert Series, Food Truck Tuesdays, and much more!
This AJC article mentions the newly approved bathroom renovations. The article states, “The Lilburn City Council recently approved a contract with BM&K, and subcontractors, in an amount not to exceed $777,189 for the construction of a new restroom facility in Lilburn City Park.”
The new facility will feature a total of five toilets, eight urinals and five sinks in the men’s room and 16 toilets and five sinks in the women’s room. Each restroom has a separate ADA compliant restroom as well as a family restroom. This project will be funded 50 percent with SPLOST/Recreation funds and 50 percent with the city’s Capital Projects Fund.
The new design will triple the bathroom capacity and the building will establish the new look of the park, helping the redevelopment to blend in with the surrounding community. We are proud to be a part of the renovations
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.
