Powell Building Group is the most professional and highest qualified contractor I have had the opportunity to work with. They communicate very well with owners and keep them appraised of construction schedules, which is sometimes a rare thing in the industry.

The Central Library has become the new hallmark building for the East Tennessee State University Campus.  The four story, 196,300 SqFt  building consists of a structural steel frame with reinforced concrete floors, brick, natural limestone and aluminum curtain-wall veneer system.  Other features of the building include:

  • Authentic reproduction of Congressman Jimmy Quillen, Washington D.C. office
  • Four story open spiral staircase, with solid marble treads, accented with a stainless steel and glass handrail
  • Seventy-six individual study rooms with networking capabilities
  • Secured archives library

Powell completed this project on schedule in 24 months, under a lump sum contract with a construction cost of $20,805,000.
