309 East College Avenue

309 East College Avenue

J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc. was selected as the general contractor to reconstruct 309 East College Ave located in Decatur, GA.

This early 1920’s retail structure, which sits at one of the main access points to the City of Decatur’s downtown district, suffered a major fire in late 2009, leaving the remaining structure in an unsafe condition. JMW worked directly with the owner to assist in insurance settlements and collaborated with the design team for the completion of working drawings and specifications. After sitting for over a year, our teams were able to help kick off the project’s re-development. The building was rebuilt using historic details and load bearing masonry walls. Steel and wood timbers made up roof structures and custom built wood storefront window systems mimicked previous window details. This project was completed ahead of schedule, allowing long displaced tenants to begin their operations and reactivate this section of Decatur.
