General Contracting Services: Internal Renovations at LLA’s New Office Space

2023 marks a brand-new era for the Lake Lanier Association (LLA). For the first time since our inception in 1966, the LLA will have a physical presence in the community. For the last 25+ years, the Association has operated, administratively, in two small offices located in the North Georgia Community Foundation building.

With over 12 million visitors each year, and Lake Lanier’s growing popularity, our work has become more important than ever before. The establishment of a communal space will afford the opportunity to host ongoing meetings and activities that will position us to continue our work well into the future.

We invite you to review this proposal and hope you’ll join us in creating a professional, high energy atmosphere that will energize, inspire and engage all who enter. It is our goal to create a modern, comfortable and inviting space that will immerse our guests, constituents and benefactors in the work we do for Lake Lanier and its surrounding communities.

We know what it takes to keep Lake Lanier clean, full and safe; but we are relying on your professional experience and expertise to help us realize our vision for this new facility. If you decide to submit a proposal, we encourage you to take full creative license.

Additionally, we will not enter this new space quietly! The grand opening will be comprised of a series of events and surrounded by healthy doses of media attention. This is your opportunity to showcase your company’s skills and passion for the community. We encourage you to embrace the spotlight!
