R.B. Baker was awarded the site work contract in October 2016 to construct a new distribution warehouse for Duke Realty Company in Savannah, GA. The 1.433 million square foot warehouse is located on a 90 acre site and will serve as a major distribution center for the proposed tenant, Floor & Décor.
On March 11, 2016, RB Baker along with design partner Mott MacDonald started a $17.5 Million Design Build project for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority. This project involves a 2.9 miles of reconstructing the existing roadway to widening Girvin Road to a five-lane, urban roadway south of Ashley Melisse and three-lane north of Ashely Melisse.
Our two projects on GA Highway 17 in McDuffie and Wilkes counties total approximately 16 total miles of construction. The projects consist of converting a two lane highway into a four lane divided highway between the towns of Thomson and Washington, GA. Two new lanes will be constructed in newly acquired right of way parallel to the two existing lanes. The two existing lanes will then be removed and reconstructed. The projects also include the construction of six new bridges.
The West region was awarded a project that stretched 21.8 miles between SR 35 / US 319 located in Colquitt and Tift Counties. The work consisted of 143,000 SY of GABC, 637,000 SY of variable depth milling, and 138,000 tons of asphalt. The project was completed in February of this year. The West region would like to thank their employees for all of their hard work and dedication in making this project a success.
