Bouhan Falligant, LLP broke ground today on construction of a new office building at One West Park Avenue, on the south side of Forsyth Park. The three-story, 18,000-square-foot building will be completed in spring 2017.
“Today marked a new chapter in the 130-year history of Bouhan Falligant,” said Lea Holliday, managing partner of Bouhan Falligant. “We look forward to continuing to provide quality advice and counsel for our clients, and are pleased to be a part of all of the growth happening south of Forsyth Park.”
The building, which was designed by Felder and Associates and will be built by West Construction Company, will be a highly detailed, brick-veneered building with cast stone elements, most closely resembling the monumental architecture from the Federal style period. The primary design features include regularly spaced pilasters, topped with cast stone capitals, which support a classical motif brick entablature. The heavy stone cornice above the pilasters will wrap the entire building. Though the exterior will be traditional, the interior will be clean, crisp and incorporate all of the features of modern efficient office design.
“We are excited to be part of such a monumental project for Bouhan Falligant and the City of Savannah,” said Matt West, president of West Construction Company. “The teamwork exhibited during the last few months by everyone involved in this project has been outstanding, and we’re looking forward to seeing the results of a safe and successful construction project.”
