Hancock County Courthouse

Our extensive experience with historic preservation has earned our firm numerous awards. As a result, we were selected to oversee the restoration of "Her Majesty," the Historic 1881 Hancock County Courthouse in Sparta, Georgia. Designed by the Atlanta-based firm Parkins and Bruce, this building is a nationally significant structure and considered to be one of Mr. Bruce's finest works.

We're dedicated to providing services tailored to each client's individual needs. So, additionally, our approach to new construction projects enables us to take on many different kinds of projects across a number of sectors. To date, we have successfully completed many SPLOST-funded new facilities.
