Yesterday AEC joined the 400 companies who visited the Georgia Tech campus looking to expand their workforce with innovative minds and true talent. AEC will be combing through the applicants in the upcoming days to decide which “helluva” engineer will join the growing AEC team in Roswell. If you would like to be considered for an open position for a full-time entry level civil engineer or an internship in the upcoming months, please visit our Careers page. Go Jackets!
Construction has begun on the new Mountain Walk mixed use development in Cobb County. The project includes 54 townhomes, 8,000 square feet of office and AEC was able to work around and greatly enhance the existing Mountain Biscuits Restaurant.
The initial zoning plan showed the existing restaurant to be removed, but after gaining the input from the surrounding residents it became clear that all efforts needed to be made to preserve Mountain Biscuit. The developer, Cornerstone Associates, and AEC worked closely with surrounding residents, the Cobb County Staff and Cobb Commissioner JoAnn Birrell to rework the design to preserve the existing Mountain Biscuits Restaurant.
In addition to preserving the restaurant, the design team was able to enhance the access by introducing a dedicated left turn lane, adding additional asphalt parking for the restaurant and enhancing the landscape along the frontage of Old Highway 41. So the next time you are in the area of Historic Kennesaw Mountain, stop in and have one of the best meals in Cobb County!
Miss Mary's Ice Cream Crankin' is a creative, delicious event with a great cause. The Drake House is an organization empowering homeless mothers and children in the community, founded in 2004 by Mary Drake. In honor of “Miss Mary” and her love for ice cream, the Crankin’ event raises tens of thousands of dollars each year for the crisis center.
The 11th annual home-made ice cream social on August 30th was no different – the Roswell Square was filled with smiling (and oftentimes messy) faces. The morning rain cleared just in time for the event, making the weather very mild for August – great for the patrons AND the ice cream! AEC’s home-made ice cream flavors included “Cake Batter”, “Rocky Road”, “Coffee Chocolate Chip”, and “Choco-Late”. If you missed the fun this year, be sure to join AEC in 2016!
