The State of Tennessee Department of General Services has awarded J&S Construction a 300-day contract to repair and renovate historic cabins at Standing Stone State Park.

J&S Construction will be responsible for the repairs and/or replacement of the deteriorated building materials to 10 historic cabins, which will include framing, subfloor and finish flooring, cabinetry, electrical, plumbing fixtures, and light fixtures.

Each of the cabins’ kitchens and bathrooms will require the removal of existing flooring, transitions, and subflooring, to allow for the inspection of joists for damage/deterioration.

New electrical service and panels will be installed to these units, and they will receive new paint, finishes and refinished wood flooring.

Additional work to be completed as needed will include exterior site drainage improvements and any necessary masonry updates.

J&S Construction will work alongside Sparkman and Associates, the Designer of Record based out of Knoxville, to follow the Secretary of the Interior’s (SOI) Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Work is scheduled to begin in August.

Founded in 1957, J&S Construction is a privately held construction firm, providing energy-efficient general contracting, design-build, and construction management services for a wide variety of markets, including commercial, healthcare, religious, institutional, and industrial facilities.
