Juneau celebrates 25 years in business!

Juneau Construction Company

University of Georgia Russell Hall

Athens, Georgia

Originally constructed in the 1970’s Russell Hall was overdue for an extensive rehabilitation. This award-winning project is a perfect example of an adaptive re-use project that was done with the utmost quality. Juneau transformed the existing residence hall into a place where students not only live, but collaborate, gather and learn. The 230,000 square foot, 9-story residence hall underwent significant renovations and re-configurations of existing spaces. This 960-bed residence hall now has spaces beyond the dorm rooms with numerous classrooms, computer labs, community gathering spaces and study rooms, making the on-campus living experience more enjoyable for those who reside in Russell Hall

I want to congratulate the entire Russell team in a job well-done! I was truly amazed at the final product—both in the design and the quality of the renovated Russell. I want to congratulate you not only on the work; but also on the excellent communication amongst all team-members during this high-profile project. Thanks for keeping the BOR updated with the bi-weekly reports; for meeting the UGA Fall/Move-in schedule; and for keeping the project within budget!
