ABBS / Atlanta Barber & Beauty Supply | Retail




Custom built in 1965 as a frozen poultry warehouse, the original 1/5 acre site featured a 9,750 SF structure with 18-in concrete slab, CMU foundation wall with interior supports, TPO membrane roof, structural steel warehouse, four dock doors and only one side door. In addition, a smaller attached brick building was the dock and warehouse office.

Both the building and site/truck court were badly degraded. The site required new water service lines, sanitary lines; curb, gutter and driveway and employee/customer parking lots. All work was done under Georgia Stream Buffer code. DCG added “curb appeal” with new landscaping and sidewalks that meet City of Atlanta beautification requirements.

Exterior and Interior remodel required extensive demolition, including: overhead and personnel doors, windows, metal wall panels, pipe bollards, concrete pavement and removal of refrigeration equipment.
