Site work has begun on Lot 5 in the Dan Speer Industrial Park South off Highway 31 South in Pulaski.
Doss Brothers, Inc. of Lawrenceburg began construction of the pad ready site on Monday.
Officials say work on the site is expected to take 60 to 90 days to complete, depending on the weather.
Once completed, the site will have a 256,800 square foot building pad. "This is a game-changer for our community and is a great asset to promote to prospective industries," stated David Hamilton, Executive Director of the Giles County Economic Development Commission.
The pad-ready site is jointly funded by the City of Pulaski, Giles County, and the Tennessee Valley Authority.
TVA awarded Giles County a grant of up to $500,000 to construct the pad with the City and County providing the match for the grant.
The City of Pulaski is funding a detention pond at the site which will capture water run-off from the site.
Also, the State of Tennessee awarded the City an industrial access road grant to extend the road to the site.
"The City and County should be commended for investing in the pad ready site," Hamilton said.
According to the Middle Tennessee Industrial Development Association, the Giles County site is one of only 5 pad-ready sites in the 40-county region they represent.
