Advanced Systems Inc. is a Woodstock-based, commercial general contractor that specializes in ground-up construction, remodeling/build-outs and site development for clients in Georgia and across the country.
“Our clientele has expanded as well as our bandwidth and footprint,” said founder and President John Horney.” We have an amazing team that represents our company to the fullest every day.”
A turnkey, start-to-finish experience is guaranteed for each client, thanks to design-build services that maximize savings, along with engineering, architectural and interior design-related resources. A service department is available for maintenance and repairs.
A primary objective of Advanced Systems is to minimize the interruption of normal business activities while work is being done. The focus remains on keeping the client’s business profitable during construction. Crews also are experienced in converting empty space into income-producing space within budget and time requirements.
“We have had multiple clients with underutilized properties, and we have been able to work side by side with them, merging ideas and imaginations and the needs of their business, and were able to convert their property to prosperous businesses,” John said.
Working alongside his father, John grew up in the construction industry, and started Advanced Systems in 1990. He has built an executive team with more than 120 years of experience; the company has multiple general contractor licenses across the United States and commercial certifications in the medical field (ASHE- and HCC-certified).
Throughout the company’s 32-year history, there has been a wide array of projects and remodels. Local projects include Michael Christian Salon & Dry Bar in Woodstock, the WellStar Towne Lake Medical Center, The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta, PT Solutions, and the new location of Window World Kennesaw, just to name a few.
Historic renovation and preservation work was done to Moultrie Technical College and the Georgia governor’s mansion, which received accolades from then-Gov. Sonny Perdue: “Thank you for the mansion’s face-lift. You made her look pretty sporty at forty!”
“I have always enjoyed being a part of and being able to see all the projects come together, fulfilling the needs of our many clients,” said John, who lives with his wife Carol in Woodstock. The Horney family is very involved in the community, through church, Never Alone and the Boys and Girls Club of Cherokee County, for which John serves as a board member.
The close-knit environment doesn’t end at home, however. The family focus extends to the workplace, where John said “we treat our employees and clients how we would want to be treated.”
