Barnsley Construction Group, the project contractor, recently set the foundation and erected the walls for the additional 7,000 square feet of administrative space and 3,00 square feet of training space.

The expansion project, budgeted at $2.9 million, was funded by the 2017 Special purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) and has the expected completion time of five months, dependent upon weather conditions.
