Balfour Beatty Construction has secured a contract to provide preconstruction and construction management at risk services to the Eastman Chemical’s Corporate Business Center in Kingsport, US.

The new facility will consolidate company’s different facilities into single facility, which the company said will foster employee creativity and collaboration.

Corporate Business Center can accommodate 850 employees and feature a fitness centre, cafeteria, customer meeting spaces, customer innovation space, and conference rooms.

The facility will have flexible space solution and will be designed to facilitate maximum natural light into the facility.

Philadelphia based Jacobs KlingStubbins will serve as the architect-engineer for the project.

Construction on the project is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2014 with completion aimed for late summer 2015.
