Georgia-Pacific Dixie Manufacturing Plant

Project Facts

Jackson, Tennessee
September 2024


JE Dunn is leading a design-build team that will design, engineer and construct a new, 893,600 SF greenfield plant for Georgia-Pacific’s Dixie brand. It is the first new, ground-up Dixie facility constructed since 1991. The new facility will increase production capacity, meeting increased consumer demand. This is a prototype facility for Georgia-Pacific and the front-end planning process on this project will be key to defining scope for future new facilities.

The new facility will include manufacturing, warehousing and rail dock areas, as well as maintenance shops for equipment. A separate, but connected, 16,000 SF office area is also included. As a greenfield project, the team will also design and engineer a wastewater pre-treatment system, IT infrastructure, and electrical infrastructure. The Aptitude team will coordinate low-voltage technology for the project.
