A Charleston, South Carolina, concrete contractor plans to open an office in Chattanooga, the company's first outside of its headquarters site.
Jack Evans, owner of Evans Contracting Group, said in a phone interview Friday that his company already is doing work in Chattanooga and the area.
He said the business is working at McCallie School on a new outdoor facility as well as at the Buc-ee's travel center in Calhoun, Georgia, where his company is helping build a car wash and added parking.
Also, Evans said his business is working at locations in the South related to construction of ModWash car washes. ModWash is based in Chattanooga.
A veteran, Evans said he's interested in putting other vets to work and providing training opportunities.
"We'll give guys leadership and training skills," he said.
