Brasfield & Gorrie Marks Construction Milestone on Ovation Office Buildings
General contractor Brasfield & Gorrie recently joined Highwoods Properties to mark a milestone in the construction of a new headquarters facility in the Ovation mixed-use development within the Cool Springs district of Franklin, Tennessee. The facility will serve as the new U.S. headquarters for Mars Petcare.
During a ceremony on Friday, April 20, construction crews celebrated the topping out milestone, which signals the completion of the final level of the facility’s steel structure.
With two connected buildings and a seven-level parking garage, the new headquarters will include approximately 223,700 square feet of office space that will provide pet-friendly and collaborative areas for employees.
Designed and constructed with sustainability in mind, the facility is pursuing LEED Gold certification.
Serving as construction manager-at-risk, Brasfield & Gorrie is teaming with Hastings Architecture Associates on this project, which is slated for completion in 2019.
