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
Contemporary furnishings were provided by Perdue.
