Evans General Contractors Opens New Office in Raleigh
Firm leverages The Research Triangle to expand Life Sciences and accommodate growth.
RALEIGH, NC (January 26, 2021) — In response to an ongoing life science and advanced manufacturing workload within The Research Triangle, Evans General Contractors, an Atlanta based firm, announces the opening of a new office in Raleigh, North Carolina. Christian Matthews, Vice President, Raleigh will lead business development initiatives including a focused expertise in Life Sciences.
For over a decade, Evans has actively provided distribution, logistics, and laboratory solutions to clients throughout the Raleigh metro and is a leader in the design and construction of manufacturing, healthcare, life sciences, food and beverage, corporate environments, and distribution and logistics facilities.
“Given the concentration of AgTech, life science, technology, and manufacturing companies in the Raleigh area, the decision to expand our presence and establish a local office was a necessary step in our business growth strategy,” said RT Evans, President and CEO. “We believe our presence will allow us to better serve our existing clients and trade partners, accommodate expected growth, and meet the evolving needs of the life sciences community”.
Over the past three years, Evans strategically invested in industry experts like Matthews and Kyle Davidson, Vice President and Division Manager Life Sciences, to expand expertise in pharmaceutical, biochemical, and mechanically advanced projects.
“This new office establishes Evans as a major player in the life sciences market,” noted Matthews. “By aligning industry experts with a local presence, in a region that has consistently shown promise, enables Evans to partner with some of the best minds in the industry. We look forward to building, designing, and delivering the next wave of innovative, high-quality, turn-key projects over the long term.”
Located in Crabtree Terrace at 4509 Creedmoor Road, the full-service Raleigh office is anticipated to be operational by the end of February. Modern design esthetics will reflect Evans DNA as a collaborative, sustainable, and forward-thinking design-builder. Heath Chapman and Don Shupe with CBRE | Raleigh helped broker the space.
Within the year, the firm looks to hire Project Managers, Estimators, and administration staff to support its rapidly growing Raleigh Team.
