Denark served as Construction Manager At-Risk for the Historic Downtown Knoxville Post Office & Courthouse Renovation. The Downtown Knoxville Federal Courthouse Building & Post Office was built in 1932. The building was fully renovated to its original prominence and now houses the downtown branch of the US Postal Service, while the spaces formerly occupied by the Federal Court are now home to the Tennessee State Court of Criminal Appeals and the Eastern Division of the State Supreme Court.

All tenants occupied their space on schedule, with the exception of the State Courts, which occupied its space 15 weeks early. In order to accomplish this extremely aggressive schedule, it took a dedicated effort by the design team, Denark’s Project Team, and all of our subcontractors.

“The successful restoration of the Historic Post Office and Courthouse Building will allow future generations the opportunity to enjoy this landmark building for years to come. Thank you for the hard work and for meeting the constraints of the budget and aggressive schedules. I look forward to the next project we do together.”
