This project consisted of over ten phases with six distinct areas of work within the 500,000 SF, 30 acre campus. Demolition, reconstruction, and new construction phases were all completed in and around a fully functioning facility. Roughly 30,000 SF of interior classrooms, contemporary meeting facilities, and toilet rooms were reconfigured or renovated. A new three story steel frame was constructed to tie into three different existing buildings. The largest space in the new addition was state of the art children’s performance theater.

This 8,500 SF building was built between 1864-1868 in heart of the Lafayette Historic District. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was in dire need of both cosmetic and structural modifications when Morgan Constructors began the work to install over 100 structural ties, a new roof and completed repairs to the exterior brick. Careful coordination to comply with The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and also with the City of Lafayette Historic Preservation Commission was required to maintain important design and materials unique to this historic building. Morgan also completed construction for two (2) tenant spaces and renovated the toilet rooms on the ground floor. Original brick walls are now exposed as part of the design. Re-purposed wood removed from upper floors in the building is used for flooring in both ground floor tenant spaces.

Morgan Constructors was selected to provide full construction management services on this 10,000 SF project. While the primary scope of work included extensive interior modifications and renovation, Morgan also managed the installation of the seven (7) barrel brewing system manufactured by Blichmann Engineering. Work on this fully automated brewery included setting tanks and associated equipment which are controlled by intricate mechanical and electrical systems. Other highlights include fabrication and installation of over 100 lineal feet of custom designed, live-edge sycamore, maple and walnut bar tops. Morgan also coordinated the delivery and installation of the owner supplied 350,000 BTUh, 6,000 pound gas-fired brick oven. Because of the custom nature of this project, design was frequently modified and Morgan was required to respond quickly.

The owner’s grand opening date dictated an aggressive schedule right from the start for this new restaurant and nightclub located in Historic Downtown Roswell. Start to finish, the schedule could not exceed 12 weeks. This time frame included demolition, new construction, equipment installation, testing and inspections. The compact interior space, as well as the conjested jobsite location required constant, hour by hour, on site coordination by the Morgan team for both deliveries and subcontractor activities. The Gaslight includes a new, full service commercial kitchen, full audio visual package for the nightly live performances, and an impressive custom built bar.

An abandoned Circuit City retail building was converted into this 24,000 SF indoor competitive climbing and workout facility consisting of four climbing areas, a lounge, locker rooms/bathrooms, offices and storage. Careful attention to detail and selective demolition was completed before commencing with the complicated construction project. One of the most critical activities on the schedule was to raise the roof structure 60 feet to accommodate the largest of the custom made climbing walls, which were fabricated in eastern Europe. The main stair is enclosed in a re-purposed shipping container which leads to the mezzanine. Translucent exterior wall panels were added to maximize natural light in the space in the mezzanine full service workout area.

In addition to the numerous airport retail projects, Enterprise selected the Morgan team to renovate an abandoned restaurant structure in the Atlanta suburbs, and convert it into a car sales and truck leasing facility. This 5,600 SF building required extensive structural, mechanical, and electrical modifications to meet local building codes and EHI standards. In addition to the base building work and interior build out for the sales team, Morgan constructed a separate structure on the property for a custom commercial truck wash. This project consisted of approximately two acres of site improvements including all new site utilities, underground storm water detention system and all new curb and asphalt paving.
