Office Move Accommodates Firm’s Exponential Growth
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 6, 2014 – Leadership for the residential construction and remodeling firm, The Kingston Group, is pleased to announce the relocation of its office from West Nashville to Sylvan Park. The company’s recent growth has motivated the search for a larger space that will support greater expansion and future growth to better serve its Middle Tennessee clients.
Despite adverse market conditions through the recession, the company has seen a 503 percent increase in gross revenue over the last four years and has also increased its staff by 33 percent in the last year, now making it a team of 10 construction and design professionals.
“Last fall, we purchased a 1910 former residential home turned commercial office building in Sylvan Park, located at 4705 Alabama Avenue, for $275,000, and have put $65,000 in renovations towards it,” said partner and co-owner Robbie Edwards.
Renovations included replacing the plaster walls, removing the mantles and adding a foundation.
“While completing the makeover, we uncovered postcards dating back to 1928 from a soldier to his mother in the mantles,” Edwards continued. “We tried to find the home’s previous owners, but unfortunately, were unable to track them down.”
The updated design was kept clean with flat lines and cove molding, giving it a modern feel without losing its historic charm. A “repurposed” theme was carried out in decorating the office space with salvaged lumber from co-owner Ricky Scott’s family farm in Kingston Springs used to construct shelving.
“Not only do our renovations suite our needs and showcase our style, but also closely mirror our business model: remodel vs. tear down,” said Ricky Scott, partner and owner. “We renovate historic homes throughout Middle Tennessee, and now we can use our own office as a showroom of our work to new and existing clients.”
The Kingston Group moved into the new office, located at 4705 Alabama Avenue, on Jan. 24.
