T.W. Frierson Expands Utility Provider Resume with Award of Gallatin Department of Electricity Addition & Renovation Project


< Back to Blog

We are excited to announce that we have been awarded the Gallatin Department of Electricity (GDE) Addition & Renovation project. This project is being designed by our long-time friends at Lyle Cook Martin Architects and is anticipated to begin in the Fall of 2023. Delivery of the new GDE campus master plan will be broken into several construction phases starting with a 22,920 square foot truck loading warehouse addition and renovations to the existing facility. The new addition and renovated facility will provide the Gallatin Department of Electricity with the space and amenities they need to continue providing excellent service to their ~25,000 customers for years to come.


Our entry into the utility provider market began with a strategic partnership with Blakley Construction, a registered Small Business Enterprise, to complete the historic renovation of the Omohundro Water Treatment Plant in 2016. Since then, we have completed three major projects for Metro Water Services in Nashville, TN and are currently delivering the new Stormwater Administration Building and Maintenance Garage. This LEED Gold facility is being constructed on an active Metro Water Campus and will be used as a demonstration space to highlight stormwater design best practices, including low impact site design, a green roof and a cistern. We anticipate this state-of-the-art building to be complete Fall 2023.


Shortly after beginning our relationship with Metro Water, we began our entry into constructing projects for electrical service providers. In 2018, we were asked to look at the Phase IV Addition & Renovations project for CDE Lightband at their main campus on Wilma Rudolph Blvd in Clarksville, TN. With a 30+ year history of constructing projects in Clarksville, our reputation in the community coupled with our experience with the Architect, Lyle Cook Martin, gave CDE confidence in our team to get the job done. The successful completion of this project led to another renovation project for CDE Lightband and is acting as a catalyst to continue these types of projects for Electric Co-ops across Middle Tennessee.


Our successful completion of nine major projects for clients like Nashville Electric Service, Metro Nashville Water Services and CDE Lightband has allowed them to continue providing exceptional service to over 738,000 households and businesses across Middle Tennessee.
