Auld & White Constructors recently completed an extensive interior and hardscape renovation of the existing Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce building located in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. This project was completed in two phases. The first phase of the project included the demolition of the ceilings, walls and concrete slab on the first floor followed by the installation of helical piles and concrete grade beams. Over the years, the slab of the original building had settled significantly causing the slab to belly, walls to crack and doors to become non-functional. During installation of the helical piles, large portions of the site's previous masonry building were discovered.

Phase II involved the interior renovation of the building's three floors and installation of a new roof and aluminum front entry canopy. It was important to the client to build sustainably. In fact, nearly 83% of all construction debris was recycled. DIRTT - a sustainable and reconfigurable wall system - was used throughout the interior of the first floor. The newly renovated interior of the JAX Chamber is now an open and inviting atmosphere. Features include a cafe, open working areas, conference rooms, a training room and Board Room with a catering kitchen.

Contemporary furnishings were provided by Perdue.
