Tennessee American Water has moved into a new office at 109 Wiehl St.. The new office is on existing property owned by Tennessee American Water on the site of the company’s water treatment plant.
According to Deron Allen, president of Tennessee American Water, an advantage of the new office is it brings the company’s executive leadership team on the same premises as the company’s field and operations teams.
Tennessee American Water had leased its former office at 1100 Broad St. for the past 30-plus years from the Tennessee Valley Authority. TVA has plans to utilize the office building, which is located nearby to TVA headquarters.
Tennessee American Water’s new, single-story office building’s exterior is brick and stone. It was designed to match the architecture of adjacent buildings. The new office has 7,700 square feet of workable space. Mr. Allen said LED lighting is being utililized throughout the building to reduce energy consumption. The building’s design followed the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code and the 2012 International Building Code as required by the city of Chattanooga.
Construction by Helton Construction Company of Chattanooga started on May 28, and was completed on Nov. 8. The office building was designed by Rardin & Carroll Architects of Chattanooga.
“We’re very pleased with the move and our new office,” said Mr. Allen. “We have been providing water service in Chattanooga for 126 years. We’re not going anywhere. It makes sense for us to own our office building, as well as to have our entire Tennessee American Water team working from the same premises.”
