Tuesday, February 15, 2011
Belz announced that it has completed the 18,567 SF office renovation at 5791 Summertrees Drive for Memphis Gas Light and Water.  The space will be used as administrative offices for meter reading operations, land and mapping operations and various engineering functions.  The project delivery method was design-build and was completed on schedule and on budget in just 14 weeks.  MLGW Facilities Manager Kim Raburn said “The efficiency and single point of contact and responsibility that the design-build approach provides definitely streamlined the process.”  “Belz design team, Tim Garrett and Brendan Lawton, and construction team, Jack Bearden and Tom Hughes, brought a professional approach to every aspect of the project” said Raburn.  The project included both interior and exterior improvements and adding an expanded secured and gated parking area.  The space was almost entirely demolished and rebuilt with a completely new interior.
