Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia Opens New Office Building in Columbus
COLUMBUS, GA. — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGa), Georgia’s largest health solutions company, has opened its new office building in the Muscogee Technology Park in Columbus. The new 235,000-square-foot facility will house approximately 1,500 employees and will be BCBSGa’s main hub for servicing its nearly 3 million members. The new three-story facility will replace an existing property that BCBSGa has owned since 1958 and a smaller leased facility in the Muscogee Technology Park. The new property brings together the largest collection of BCBSGa employees of any single location in Georgia. The building has two wings connected by an atrium and features an outdoor patio, fitness center and a 1.2-mile walking path. Public partners on this project included Columbus Consolidated Government, the Development Authority of Columbus and the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce. The development team includes developer The Molasky Group, general contractor Batson-Cook Construction and architect Hecht Burdeshaw Architects. More than 150 construction workers were employed at the peak of construction, the vast majority of which through subcontractors from the Columbus area and the state of Georgia.
