Sheds on Charlotte
- 50,000 SF conversion of 75 year-old metal sheds into state-of-the-art office/retail complex; Nashville, TN
- The Sheds on Charlotte is a dramatic transformation of 50,000 square feet of 1940s-era corrugated metal sheds into a light -filled office/retail complex encompassing an entire city block from 22nd and 23rd Avenues along Charlotte Avenue in Nashville, TN. Throughout the design and construction process, extra attention was given to keep the "bones" of the structure and many of the architectural elements of the existing building in place. An example of this can be found in the open courtyards, where the original steel trusses were left exposed and help create an outdoor space that flows seamlessly from building to building.
Holiday Inn Indianapolis Airport

The hotel has earned several IHG awards since it was built, including the 2017 Quality Excellence Award for commitment to the guest experience, the 2016 IHG Newcomer of the Year Award for "Best in Class" service, and the 2015 New Development Design Award, given to hotels that merit special recognition for successfully implementing a new design program.

- 40,000 SF interior build-out; Portage, IN
- After purchasing a vacant warehouse building in Portage, IN, Fronius USA turned to Holladay Construction Group and Holladay Properties to transform the raw space into their new North American headquarters. Completed from permits to occupancy in less than four months, the 40,000 square foot build-out features floor to ceiling glass partitions in the majority of the office space and finish and furniture selections that match Fronius’ efficient and capable approach to business.
