SAVANNAH, GA — Barnett Southern, a commercial and industrial site development company, and its business partners McLendon Enterprises and Complete Sitework Services, have been awarded the contract for site and utility development (Phase I) of the recently announced Hyundai Motors electric vehicle plant. The $5.5-billion manufacturing facility will employ 8,100 workers in the Savannah area. The mega site will be home to the electric vehicle assembly plant and an adjacent EV battery factory, having a large economic impact on the local market.

"Barnett Southern Corporation's mission is to provide superior utilities and site development services to our customers. Our team is excited to partner with leading construction companies to form MegaCivil and be a part of this project," said Ames Barnett, President of Barnett Southern Corporation.

With the partnership of the three construction contractor companies, the partnership will operate as MegaCivil, LLC. The Savannah Economic Development Authority selected MegaCivil, LLC as the primary contractor for this first phase, which will include clearing and site work. MegaCivil has over 75 years of combined construction experience. This initial phase will provide approximately 120 new jobs, including heavy equipment operators, truck drivers, supervisors, and foremen. Phase 1 is slated to begin in the coming months, with completion slated in the second half of 2023.
