CPL Suwanee, a Cornerstone of Community

The CPL Suwanee team isn’t just part of the community—we’re building it.

Located 30 miles north of Atlanta, our office sits on the land of the former Atlanta Falcons training camp on the first floor of Suwanee’s Gateway One, a five-story, LEED Silver accredited facility with easy access to the interstate. We’re surrounded by a variety of parks, walking trails, entertainment centers, retail goliaths and eateries, including Taco MacIppolito’s and Umaido, providing our team with a myriad of fun things to do during lunch and after work.

“CPL has been a deeply embedded part of the Suwanee region for nearly three decades,” explained Richard Edinger, P.E., CFM, Southeast Region Community Practice Leader. “We’re proud to work from a local space that champions our commitment to the community.”

Envisioned in-house, the office’s colorful interior is visually and physically modern, with an open-concept layout, industrial furnishings, exposed brick accent walls, hanging pendant lights and meeting rooms outfitted with the latest technological accoutrements.

One side wall is composed entirely of windows, filtering natural light to our adaptable workstations and ensuring the entire area is well-illuminated. A roomy and inviting kitchen features a large table that comes in handy for holiday feasts and spontaneous get-togethers. Moreover, our glass conference room is accessible via a trendy pull-up garage door, which opens to incorporate our mid-office bar and sectional for design charettes, lunches or team meetings.

“The open-concept floorplan gives way to a laid back, family atmosphere,” said Marketing Coordinator, Nick Barry. “There’s an ease of movement that helps us communicate effectively and build stronger relationships that lead to more meaningful project outcomes.”

Joining forces across disciplines and practice areas, our dynamic and sizable team is comprised of architects, engineers, designers, planners and inspection experts who all strive to nurture lasting connections with the people and places we serve.

As impassioned locals, we tackle high-impact ventures that positively transform the heart of our city. Some notable projects include the Suwanee Town Center, which includes a 7-acre urban park and Suwanee City Hall; design for the new 25-acre Town Center-on-Main park; planning for a lakeside community building and the revitalization of Brookhaven’s Murphey Candler Park; and design and construction administration services to refresh downtown Flowery Branch, GA, with a new farmer’s market and amphitheater.

“Our full-service team is highly capable of providing everything from landscape design and master programming to code enforcement and plan reviews,” said National Community Practice Leader, Kevin McOmber, P.E. “This collective expertise helps clients navigate roadmaps that make good on their unique visions, no matter how big or small a project may be.”

In the midst of brainstorming practical design solutions, our Suwanee professionals are known to indulge their shared love of fun. Potlucks, ice cream socials, “lunch bunch Fridays” and Waffle Wednesdays are all frequent calendar events, and team members especially enjoy using the foosball table, while nabbing sweet treats from the candy bowls situated throughout the office.

“We’re a really focused group with an easygoing office culture, and we enjoy celebrating each other’s achievements,” said Human Resources Generalist, Stephanie Douglas. “There’s no limit to what you can accomplish with a team as supportive as ours.”
