The restoration of the existing Governor’s Residence includes major infrastructure repairs and improvements that include an update of antiquated mechanical and electrical systems, which have placed many pieces of Tennessee art and 18th century furnishings at risk. In addition, the facility is being brought into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, as it is currently inaccessible to disabled Tennesseans.
Approximately 400 cubic yards of earth was excavated to make space for the new mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems. The exterior masonry will be cleaned and repaired to restore their original appearance and integrity. All windows were either restored or completely rebuilt to match originals. Interior finishes are being reworked, with attention to maintaining the historical value of the building.
All renovations are being conducted in accordance with LEED Gold standards.
PBG Builders was chosen to complete the restoration and preservation of the Tennessee Governor’s Residence through the state’s new Quality in Construction qualifications-based selection process, where price is a factor, but not the primary selection criteria.
It’s been a pleasure working with PBG on the restorations to the Tennessee Residence. They are always on top of things and it makes the project run smoothly.
