“The Trinka Davis project was an exciting and humbling one for RKR, since we knew this facility would serve as a home to many military veterans in the area,” said Randall Redding, President/CEO of RKR. “We are certainly honored to receive these awards but, besides those men and women whom the facility will serve, the true hero is Trinka Davis, whose gift made this facility a reality.”

RKR served as the General Contractor for the Trinka Davis Foundation to build a Primary Care Clinic and an Assisted Living Facility for the Veterans Administration of America. The Trinka Davis Veterans Village is a $17 million gift from the Trinka Davis Foundation of Birmingham, AL, and is staffed and operated by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. 

At the grand opening event, Dr. Robert Petzel, Under Secretary for Health, US Dept. of Veterans Affairs, said, "The Trinka Davis Veterans Village is absolutely the finest community-based veterans’ clinic and assisted living facility that I've ever been associated with."

Trinka Davis Foundation President Fred Kelley said, "RKR not only built the project in accordance with the high standards specified, but also seemed to take ownership of and pride in the project. The Foundation could not be more satisfied with RKR's work in constructing this sophisticated and beautiful facility." 

Located in Carrollton, the 83,000 sq. ft. complex features a 48-bed assisted living capability, as well as 88 treatment and rehabilitation rooms. It has already been certified as a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold facility by the U.S. Green Building Council. The original 12-month schedule was condensed into 10 months from completed design to substantial completion in order to meet the needs of the legal and financial transfer from the Trinka Davis Foundation to the United States Government. 

Recent AGC Georgia Awards for RKR include the following projects:GT Boggs NRE Lab Renovation and UWG Campus Bookstore (2012), Paulding County High School addition and a Best Sustainable Practices Award (2011), UWG’s Greek Village (2010), North Paulding School Cluster (2009), and Rockmart Middle School (2008).

West Georgia Habitat Changes Lives

Habitat for Humanity builds more than homes, it provides a new beginning to deserving people. Since 1976, Habitat has helped 6.8 million people find strength, stability and independence through safe, decent and affordable shelter. R. K. Redding Construction organized the West Georgia Habitat for Humanity home build in Bremen last fall. Twenty companies that work in the West Georgia area came together as one to build a new home for a deserving family in Haralson County. This “community” of volunteers not only made a significant difference for the area, according to recent studies, employees are more satisfied with their jobs when they are allowed to take a day for community service. In addition, 59% of Americans are more likely to buy a product associated with a corporate-nonprofit partnership. Beyond the obvious of doing good deeds in the communities in which you serve, it has been proven that companies which practice corporate social responsibility will significantly outperfor

Strong Foundations | Spring 2019

A Message from Randall Redding With spring fully upon us, it’s wonderful to enjoy the weather and spend time with family. I am excited to share the latest issue of the  Strong Foundations newsletter. In the first article, we spoke to Eric McDonald, President & CEO of Greater Haralson Chamber of Commerce, and Daniel Jackson, President & CEO of Carroll County Chamber of Commerce. They are members of the Greater West Georgia Joint Development Authority (GWGJDA), which has grown to represent seven area counties that work together on multi-county projects to benefit West Georgia residents. The other article discusses the recent trend of building with modular and prefabricated construction materials. This method of off-site construction and then transported to the worksite offers many advantages, but it does have its setbacks. At RKR, we will continue to examine new ways to solve the complex issues facing our industry, always with our client’s goals in mind. Thanks for

Strong Foundations | Fall 2018

A Message from Randall Redding As the season changes, it brings a sense of renewal at RKR. Hopefully the brisk temperatures refresh you during the Holiday Season. I am excited to share the latest issue of the Strong Foundations newsletter. In the first article, we spoke with West Georgia Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Jennifer Shunn. She’s made a tremendous impact on housing across the entire region. RKR is honored to work with this extremely worthwhile non-profit organization to help construct homes for those in need. In a previous issue, we shared how workforce development was a focus for the construction industry, and it’s a topic that is still very relevant. In fact, I recently participated in an Atlanta Journal Constitution interview, along with the Associated General Contractors Association. May you enjoy the Holidays filled with love, laughter and family. Thanks for your friendship and continued support, Randall K. Redding President & CEO
