September 12, 2012

Van Winkle Construction broke ground on the new John C. Maxwell Leadership Center/12Stone Satellite Campus complex in Duluth, Georgia on September 10, 2012. The 71,000 square foot facility will house Office and Administrative space, a 1,100-seat Sanctuary, a 200-seat Black Box Theater, Classrooms, a Coffee Café, Childcare space and Children’s and Student’s Ministry areas.

The John C. Maxwell Leadership Center and 12Stone Duluth Satellite Campus will sit on 17 acres located along Interstate Highway 85 near Sugarloaf Parkway. The architectural style will be similar to that of the nearby Arena at Gwinnett Center and the facility will feature an elliptical entry way surrounded by 12 stone columns.

It was important to 12Stone that the team members have strong connections to the Gwinnett County community. The design architect was edp collaborative design of Norcross, GA with the architect of record, Wakefield Beasley & Associates of Norcross, GA, who was responsible for the construction documents. The construction is scheduled to be complete by January 2014.

Ed Van Winkle, III, President of Van Winkle Construction said, “We are extremely pleased to work with 12Stone again. The John C. Maxwell Leadership Center is a tremendous project that will enable both 12Stone and the [John C.] Maxwell Company to impact church ministers and equip them to be better leaders.”
