SERVPRO of West Knoxville Breaks Ground for New Facility
On September 8, 2022, Team Cuthbertson celebrated a milestone: SERVPRO of West Knoxville, North Knoxville, Northwest Knoxville, and Oak Ridge broke ground on our new offices and warehouse location in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The heartfelt outpouring from the local community at our groundbreaking ceremony was encouraging and uplifting as guests gathered to celebrate this exciting milestone for SERVPRO Team Cuthbertson. In attendance were Knoxville's local Chambers of Commerce, news organizations, and even Mayor Glenn Jacobs (formerly Kane from WWE wrestling!). With SERVPRO trucks and a construction site (complete with active bulldozers and excavators) as the backdrop, Jeff Cuthbertson, Jamie Shelley, Craig Hixson, Mayor Jacobs, and General Manager Ben Barker suited up in SERVPRO hardhats and dug their SERVPRO branded shovels into the dirt, making the ceremonial claim that a new 31,250 square foot building would soon stand there with the signature SERVPRO logo prominently displayed on the front.
The new facility will house offices, a training room for on-site educational courses and training, a client showroom, employee bunkroom, employee gym, and a warehouse that will include areas for full-service contents cleaning and restoration, as well as an ozone chamber.
The initial clearing of the site began on August 15, 2022, and construction continues to progress. The new building is expected to go vertical as early as the end of June or the beginning of July 2024. “We are humbled by the faith and trust that our clients and customers place in us to help them in their time of need, and we are excited for the new ways this facility will aid us in expanding and fortifying our robust capabilities”, said Jeff Cuthbertson, President and CEO of Cuthbertson Restoration, Inc. Cuthbertson, who opened his first SERVPRO franchise in Chattanooga, TN, in 2008, is now the owner of 15 franchise territories across Tennessee and Central Florida. The Cuthbertson team is among the top 5 largest SERVPRO franchises in the United States.
