A Gwinnett County water reclamation project contractor that has been in the county for more than 60 years broke ground on Thursday for a new headquarters in Sugar Hill that is designed to keep up with the companies explosive growth.

Reeves Young is building it’s 50,000-square-foot, two-story headquarters on a 10-acre lot on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. It is twice the size of the company’s current headquarters in Suwanee, according to a statement from the company. The new offices are expected to open in fall 2016.

“Everything we do- from 30 feet below the ground to 30 floors above – is all about the people,” Reeves Young CEO Eric Young said in a statement. “Our commitment to our employee’s quality of life has allowed us to build the best team in the business. We look forward to growing Reeves Young in Georgia and the Southeast.”

The groundbreaking comes during a big year for Reeves Young. The company celebrated its new name earlier this year, which came on the heels of Reeves Contracting Company’s purchase of Potts Construction.

The company said it has grown annually by 18-22 percent over the last five years. It already has more than 100 employees, but it is planning to expand its workforce to meet its growing business demands.

“The City of Sugar Hill and Gwinnett County are a committed partner of Reeves Young, and we look forward to bringing jobs and economic development to the area,” Reeves Young Chairman Dean Reeves said in a statement.

The headquarters will include state of the art technology that will allow Reeves Young to highlight its work, a fitness center and spacious lunch and break rooms. Company officials also said it was designed to be sustainable so they can reduce their carbon footprint.
