New South Construction Company, an Atlanta-based general contracting firm, recently completed work on two Georgia municipal buildings. Milton City Hall in Fulton County and McDonough Courthouse in Henry County are two of the latest projects by New South’s award-winning local government practice, which constructs municipal buildings across the Southeast.
Milton’s new City Hall complex features multiple buildings and includes 23,000 square feet of administrative space, 10,000 square feet of council chambers and 5,000 square feet of community space. Additionally, the new City Hall is fully equipped with the latest technology to serve a millennial-friendly community, and the site development includes open spaces ideal for community gatherings, public parking, vehicular circulation and onsite storm water management.
“Milton’s new complex is inviting and gives the community and its leaders a beautiful and functional space to connect,” said Steve Langdon, New South Construction’s Milton City Hall project manager.
Construction on the City of McDonough’s new municipal courthouse began in late 2015 and ended earlier this year with a ribbon cutting. The 11,000-square-foot facility includes secured areas, a courtroom, holding cells, administrative and probation areas. With seating to accommodate about 250 people, the new courthouse offers more than double the capacity of its former location.
At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, McDonough Mayor Billy Copeland described the new courthouse as a “hallmark for [McDonough’s] government structure for years to come.”
