Jenkins-Essex is getting started on several new projects in Central Kentucky.
We are proud to announce we are the General Contractor of the Meade County Public Library expansion. The new 7,300 square-foot addition includes a community room with a commercial kitchen and restrooms.
We have also been selected by Gethsemane Distillery as the Design-Builder for the Affordable Truss plant relocation. Construction will start in late November on the 30,000 square-foot manufacturing and office area in Nelson County. This will allow Log Still Distillery to reclaim their original property and buildings.
Belgium manufacturer, Soudal is partnering with us for the design and construction of their new North American Headquarters office building in Elizabethtown. This state of the art, two-story, 11,000 square-foot facility is currently in the programming phase and actual construction is slated for December.
Jenkins-Essex has also been selected as the General Contractor for the new Elizabethtown Fire Station No. 2 with site work already underway on E. Dixie Ave.
We are moving right along with the new LaRue County High School football stadium and greenhouse project. The foundations and slabs have been poured for the new greenhouse and 1,500 square-foot concession stand. The new football stadium includes over 1,300 seats. The 6,600 square-foot greenhouse will have an aquaponics system yielding both produce and fish.
The plant expansion at Altec Industries is in the fourth and final phase of the multi-million dollar construction. The project will wrap up in November.
Agents and staff have moved into the new Hardin County Cooperative Extension Service Office. The 35,000 square-foot facility includes offices, meeting rooms, a conference center, a teaching kitchen, as well as a commercial catering kitchen.
The Central Kentucky Community Foundation recently moved into their new 10,000 square-foot office. The facility includes a modern meeting space and offices dedicated to the organization’s operations.
