Georgia Association of Water Professionals: Marietta, Georgia

Hogan Construction Group was chosen from a small group of select contractors to build the new Georgia Association of Water Professionals (GAWP) headquarters in Marietta, Georgia. A former call center, the new headquarters building provides 12,466 square feet of office and continuing education training space. Hogan provided construction management services for the interior renovation and build-out project, which incorporates a variety of sustainable features.

A not-for-profit organization that provides education and training for professionals in the water/wastewater industry, the Georgia Association of Water Professionals was founded in 1932 as an authority for anyone concerned with Georgia’s water resources. Eager to move from its leased facility nearby, the GAWP contracted with Hogan to completely gut and rebuild the aging facility and provide a new roof, mechanical and plumbing systems, high-end fixtures and an efficient space for the organization’s daily operations and training programs. The project was funded in large part by donations from GAWP members.

With an aggressive waste management plan and an indoor air quality plan that ensures maximum comfort for the GAWP staff and visitors, the new facility is environmentally sustainable and a testament to the owner’s commitment to the preservation of natural resources. Construction incorporated materials procured regionally, including low-flow water fixtures throughout the one-story building. The renovation project has received a LEED Gold Certification from the USGBC.

The fast track renovation project was completed in late May to allow the GAWP to conduct its June training programs from its new state-of-the-art facility.
