CROSSVILLE — J&S Construction Company, located in Cookeville, Tenn., has recently signed a $595,000  contract with Cumberland Plaza, LLC to reface the front façade of Cumberland Plaza Shopping Center, a 56,720 square-foot retail center located in the heart of Crossville on the corner of Genesis Road and North Main Street, two of the city’s busiest streets.

During this four-month project, J&S Construction will completely reface the front facade of the building and bring the facility to current standards. The client has asked for a ‘Timeless’ look to the new façade to provide many years of enjoyment to the community. The façade will be refaced to look similar to two highly popular Tennessee shopping plazas, Providence Marketplace (Mt. Juliet) and Turkey Creek (Knoxville).

"This international client picked J&S because they could not take the chance that their contractor would fail to perform when they were so far removed from the project,” said J&S Construction CEO Johnny Stites. “Our consistent record of performance was one of the factors that caused us to be awarded the project. We are thankful to have the opportunity to present a positive impression of Tennessee businesses to our client."

The 764 lineal-foot facade update will consist of replacing the current overhang and brick columns with a fresh EIFS front with varying colors, fabric and metal awnings, as well as staggered storefront heights.

The covered courtyard will be revamped with skylights and an updated look to bring in more natural light. Also, exterior lighting fixtures will be updated throughout the center to tie into the new theme.

“It has been a delight to work with the owners of Cumberland Plaza and see their commitment to the Upper Cumberland Region,” added Jim Vaughn, vice president of architecture at J&S Construction. “It is always a pleasure to assist in bringing more business to the area, as well as making improvements to a city’s appearance in general.”
