J&S Construction is proud to announce separate Design-Build contracts for two SONIC®, America’s Drive-In® sites, both of which are located in Middle Tennessee.

The first contract’s scope of work will include an addition to the existing 524 W. Main St. facility, located in Lebanon, as well demolition and removal of an existing house on the site where a new 18-menu canopy will be constructed.  The project will also include concrete work, a new trash enclosure, restrooms, a storage room and a mechanical room.

J&S Construction will also construct a ground-up, new facility at a site in Carthage. This contract will include unique king-brick exterior, a custom-layout kitchen, a 20’4” x 7’9” freezer/cooler, a dual-fountain drink/slush station island, 31 menu stalls with eight picnic tables for outdoor seating and 17 additional parking spaces.

Since 1957, more than 75 percent of J&S Construction’s projects have been completed with repeat customers. J&S Construction has completed more than 120 projects for Sonic restaurants in the last decade – including two ground-up sites, complete with plumbing, electrical, HVAC, audio and lighting; as well as numerous remodels and renovations to fit new branding in changing all-call stations, exterior facades, lighting and menu boards.  J&S Construction has also been contracted to complete energy savings modifications on several restaurants, including the first solar panel installation in Tennessee. 

J&S Construction has also been called upon by restaurant owners for various emergency repairs including reconstruction of two facilities from fire damage, along with emergency board-up and temporary repairs. Emergency and restoration improvements have also been provided to more than 15 locations, following vehicle impact to the facility. All affected stores were able to operate without any downtime during the emergency restoration.

The Lebanon project is expected to be completed this winter while the Carthage project is expected to be completed in spring 2015.
