COOKEVILLE – A Cookeville dentist is relocating and a local contractor has been selected to complete the expansion project.
Cookeville Regional Dental Associates, located at 327 N. Cedar Ave., is moving and J&S Construction Company Inc. has been selected as the design-build contractor for the project. The scope of work requires a complete interior renovation of the first floor of an existing building – 350 S. Lowe Ave. – recently purchased by the dental group. The work area is approximately 4,547 square feet in size.
While the exterior of the building is not expected to change at this time, the facility’s interior will receive all new finishes. Extensive coordination with the owner’s dental equipment provider will be required to ensure business is ready to begin as soon as the certificate of occupancy is received, J&S officials said.
The new floor plan, while offering more patient chairs and a larger reception area, will also accommodate an increase in patients for the business. The reception area will include a children’s play nook. The new space will also showcase an open floor plan, yet maintain adequate privacy for each chair location.
The parties did not release estimated project costs, but a commercial remodel building permit filed with the City of Cookeville in March totaled $355,000.
Cookeville Regional Dental Associates, which recently celebrated 11 years in business, offers comprehensive dental care, orthodontics and oral surgery. The moved is expected to be complete this summer.
