As part of the City of Suwanee’s SPLOST program management, Heery managed the design and construction of the new landmark, Suwanee City Hall. The goals of the project were to provide a facility that would function as a welcoming and attractive community icon. The new City Hall also embodies classic, traditional Georgia downtown design and is designed to fit in with and yet stand out among other nearby structures in the Town Center Park area. The exterior look of the New City Hall makes an impressive statement. The interior is efficient and extremely well organized in order to enable the City’s staff to achieve their stated goal to exceed the expectations of customers and patrons. The interior layout facilitates City staff’s ability to collaboratively approach their daily tasks.
The project was successfully completed on time and within budget and now serves as a landmark for the people and City of Suwanee—in addition to acting as a public establishment for the community that is welcoming, safe, and attractive. The new City Hall functions as a state-of-the-art educational and cultural resource for the 21st Century.
The owner sought a facility where the architecture would be meaningful, significant, and distinct but ensures that the function of the building, especially the interior layout, meets the unique needs of the City so that staff and elected officials can continue to effectively serve the citizens.
This SPLOST program also included a number of park facilities, greenways and pedestrian improvements.
