Allen+Batchelor was awarded the project after a competitive bidding and negotiation process. The city purchased the downtown Augusta building several years earlier from AT&T. The facility was the former Augusta headquarters for AT&T. A+B completely demolished and removed all of the building’s existing 38,000 sf interior with only perimeter walls and columns remaining. The completely new interior included all new framing, finishes, elevator, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Additional parking, drive through with pneumatic tube system, and building security systems were also included as part of the project. The beautiful and now functional facility is the main office for the Augusta Utilities, Augusta Engineering and Traffic Departments. The project was completed on time and in budget.
