Commonwealth Associates Relocates-Expands Jackson, Michigan, Headquarters

Commonwealth Associates, Inc., an electrical engineering consulting firm, will relocate and establish its new headquarters facility in Jackson, Michigan. The $4.2 million project is expected to create 60 jobs.

The company recently purchased and renovated the recently vacated four-story Comerica Bank facility in downtown.

“Commonwealth’s legacy began in downtown Jackson over 100 years ago,” said Commonwealth President and CEO Richard N. Collins. “The opportunity to repurpose an existing building, a building that Commonwealth designed in the 1950s, in the heart of downtown and become integral with the revitalization of the community is a long-term goal about to be realized.”

The project is being supported by a $400,000 Jobs Ready Michigan Program performance-based grant. The City of Jackson Brownfield Redevelopment Authority also received MSF approval of $203,183 in state tax capture for reimbursement of brownfield activities at the site. The city of Jackson is supporting the project through approval of local tax capture.

Commonwealth Associates’s primary services include engineering and design, consulting, and planning and studies. The company also provides expert licensing and design services for power generation, electric distribution line, transmission line, and substation projects, plus projects involving renewable energy.
