500+ Employees

Chattanooga Whiskey Co. Chattanooga, Tenn.

While reviewing plans, our team took note of a large, 6-inch pipe designed to supply the process water. Through research, our team learned that replacing the 6-inch service with a 4-inch service would slightly reduce the project cost upfront, but provide significant savings to the company’s monthly sewer bill. Now implemented, the modification saves the client approximately $2,500 per month on sewer fees and will save the client nearly $1 million over the facility’s lifespan.

EMJ assisted Chattanooga Whiskey Co. in repurposing a former car dealership into a modern, full-scale distillery and barrel storage facility. The company’s new home includes production space, offices, event areas and storage for over 4,000 barrels of bourbon whiskey.

Volkswagen Training Center Chattanooga, Tenn. EMJ constructed the automotive training facility located next to Volkswagen Chattanooga Assembly Plant. The facility includes learning laboratories and simulated production lines, blending manufacturing with education. The structure meets both the tolerances of assembly line specifications and the environmental requirements of a learning academy. The project was completed within 7 months, allowing for more than 2,000 employees to begin training.


RiverPoint Commerce Center Grand Prairie, Texas

RiverPoint Commerce Center is a 602,958 square foot industrial warehouse development. EMJ constructed two industrial tilt-wall buildings and installed wet utilities and two retaining walls on the 42-acre site. In addition, off-site work required new traffic signalization. To build a trusting relationship, EMJ agreed to return all project buyout savings from each subcontractor to the client. Our team immediately began analyzing areas in which the design team could reduce costs, while maintaining the integrity of the structure. Through our transparent, collaborative process, our team returned more than $500,000 to the client.



Shaw Industries T1 Plant Adairsville, Ga.

Shaw T1 Plant is a 686,668 square foot facility with 566,662 square feet of carpet tile manufacturing space, a 107,506 square foot warehouse and a 12,500 square foot administrative building. Included in EMJ’s scope of work were 27 loading docks, eight 88-foot tall storage silos, and a rail spur for material distribution. The project is slated to be LEED-Silver certified. 6

Kohl’s Distribution Centers Corsicana, Texas (2); Dallas, Texas; Macon, Ga.; Ottawa, Ill.; Patterson, Calif. EMJ partnered with Kohl’s Corporation to construct 1.7 million square feet of warehouse and distribution space as part of the department store’s U.S. expansion. EMJ built six facilities ranging from 90,000 square feet to 500,000 square feet.


Shaw Industries Plant 34 Expansion Dalton, Ga.

Shaw Industries Plant 34 is an industrial facility on which EMJ performed a 553,000 square foot addition. The expansion included 55 dock ramps, a new break room and offices within the warehouse. EMJ prepared the 28-acre site, constructed the facility, and installed the site utilities, as well as a detention pond. After analyzing details in the expansion plans and considering the project’s potential impact on Shaw’s current facility operations, our team suggested adding an additional bay of the same height to the current facility and increasing the size of the expansion’s steel bay. This removed the need for expensive support beams and prevented the interruption of operations.


Robotics Technology Park, Phase II Tanner, Ala.

NASA, U.S. military, bio-technology and agri-technology companies use this industrial development to perform research and development in robotics automation. The Advanced Technology Research and Development Center features four high bays, laboratories, classrooms, a raised data-compatible floor system, a viewing mezzanine, and data ports. The LEED-Silver project also boasts a test track with an elevated viewing platform.


Farmer Brothers Co. Headquarters Northlake, Texas

Spanning 28 acres, the coffee company headquarters includes a 258,338 square foot distribution center, a 194,438 square foot coffee production facility, and 84,823 square feet of office space for its nearly 400 corporate employees.

Farmer Brothers desired an aggressive schedule, as four other facilities nationwide were consolidating into the new headquarters, and the new distribution center needed to begin operating while construction was still underway. EMJ coordinated the entire project team, ensured that the facility could function while construction was ongoing, and worked with consultants to highlight value-saving opportunities and ensure long-term efficiency for the facility. Our early involvement with the project team allowed EMJ to be fully in-sync with the client to proactively deliver value, resulting in almost $2 million in savings. The project is slated to be LEED-Silver certified.
