J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc. was the general contractor for the Hotel Indigo located in Athens, GA.
This project included the new construction of a 5 story 93,447 sq. ft. boutique hotel. The structure is a hybrid of post tension concrete, load bearing masonry and hollow core plank construction. This 130 guest room hotel is the first LEED-Gold hotel for IHG and the 9th LEED-Gold hotel in the world. The project diverted over 1,532 tons of waste, used over 46% of locally produced materials, saved more than 30% of its water usage over similar projects and used over 28% of recycled content. JMW completed this complex project on time and within budget.
Under a separate contract, J.M. Wilkerson Construction completed the construction of the 6,000 sq. ft. Rialto Club located in the basement of the hotel. The Rialto Room contains a full service bar and kitchen that serves a 200 seat state-of-the-art music venue.
