Lawrenceville Opens Doors to New Public Works Complex with Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

Public Works Ribbon Cutting


LAWRENCEVILLE
(GWINNETT/METRO ATLANTA) GA – February 12, 2018 - The City of Lawrenceville proudly opened the doors to its new nearly $20 million Public Works Complex with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, February 12. Located at 435 West Pike St., the facility was a much-anticipated move bringing together the City’s Gas, Electric, Damage Prevention, Fleet Maintenance, Streets and Sanitation departments. In addition to providing a greatly improved working environment for employees, the facility also serves as an essential first-step toward completion of Gwinnett’s largest redevelopment project currently underway – the South Lawn in Downtown Lawrenceville.

The ceremony featured an address by Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson along with tours of the new facility. Additional representatives in attendance included Lawrenceville City Manager Chuck Warbington, Public Works Director Barry Mock and Croft and Associate’s Project Management team.

“The new Public Works Facility represents the City’s continued efforts to move Lawrenceville forward as we strive to be the premier place to live, work and play in metro Atlanta,” commented Mayor Johnson. “While streamlining city services for the community as well as providing a quality work environment for our employees, this facility also serves as a catalyst for current redevelopment activity and future growth for our great city.”

Community members, local dignitaries, city partners and the media were invited to the ribbon-cutting ceremony where they received a first glance of the new complex that sits on a 25-acre site and now houses 122 employees. The 66,000-sq.-ft. complex includes three buildings, a mezzanine space and additional capacity for growth and future expansion if needed. The project also incorporated 240 parking spaces and new intersection improvements. The opening of the public works facility was an instrumental component to allow for further development in the City’s central business district. Included in this development is the South Lawn project, which will infuse the already well known and frequented Historic Downtown with over 600 residential living units, more than 15,000 sq. ft. of retail space, connect City Hall and the Police Station with the increasingly popular Lawrenceville Lawn and create a comprehensive walkable environment straight down to the Lawrenceville Square.
