Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Friday, March 6th, 2020

The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry celebrated the groundbreaking of their brand new location on Tuesday, March 3rd. Located at 3001 Chatham Center Drive, this exciting project is the new 24,000 square foot home of the Scottish Rite.

The building was designed by Peterson Gordon Architects of Winston Salem, NC and will be built by West Construction Company. The exterior of the building will be constructed from a detailed façade of brick, cast stone, and architectural columns. Inside, the building will house the new masonic lodge rooms, event space, a commercial kitchen, offices, and a museum to pay tribute to the proud history of the Scottish Rite in Savannah.

“This is a very exciting project for Savannah, the Scottish Rite, and for our company,” said West Construction Company President Matt West. “Their current home at 341 Bull Street was built in 1916, so building for the Scottish Rite isn’t an opportunity that comes along often. The Scottish Rite’s values of faith, family, and love of our country are also values that are dear to us, and we’re very proud to be a small part of their storied history.”

The project is expected to be complete November 2020.
