Julie Wade Named Executive Director of Park Place Outreach

Attorney Julie Wade Selected as Executive Director of Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter

Savannah attorney and school board member Julie Wade has been named executive director of the Park Place Outreach — Youth Emergency Shelter, which provides support and temporary residential services for at-risk children and teens in Savannah and the surrounding area.

Wade will succeed Linda Hilts, who’s retiring after 20 years, and will take office on May 8.

“I am honored to be selected for this position, and to build on the excellent programs Linda Hilts began and fostered over the past 20 years,” Wade said. “She became the voice of homeless and unaccompanied youth in our community, and I am eager to continue to work on their behalf.”

Park Place Outreach board chairman Todd Cellini praised Wade’s legal background and her experience in student and child advocacy.

“As a sitting board member of the Savannah-Chatham public school system, she has an extensive understanding of our largest population of at-risk children,” Cellini said. “Having served in various board positions for several non-profit organizations, she also has vast fundraising experience as well as expertise in grants compliance.”

Under Hilts’s leadership, Park Place Outreach helped more than 6,200 area young people find emergency shelter and thousands more found stability through its non-residential programs. She developed many of the organization’s ongoing services, including the Street Outreach Program team, which offers peer mentoring to resident adolescents and provides counseling, clothing and personal care items to older youth, up to age 21, who are in need but might not wish to come to the shelter.

“My goal over the next few weeks is to meet with the board members and staff, along with community members and supporters,” Wade said. “By helping to ensure a smooth leadership transition, I will be able to focus from day one on continuing to provide a safe and loving environment to the youth who come to Park Place Outreach for assistance.”

Preciball USA Holds Grand Opening of New Distribution Center in Pooler

Preciball USA Holds Grand Opening of New Distribution Center in Pooler

(POOLER, GA) Preciball USA hosted the grand opening of its almost 40,000 square ft, North American distribution center. A grand opening reception was held at the facility in the Westside Business Park on U.S. Hwy. 80 in Pooler, just west of Savannah.

Preciball, the world leader in the manufacture and supply of industrial ball bearing products, engaged the Dewitt Tilton Group of Savannah to build the new facility near the Port of Savannah at the Westside Business Park. After the ribbon cutting, guests were invited to tour the new facility.

“We are excited about showing off our new building, which was thoughtfully designed and constructed with energy efficient features and effective land use,” said Don Peak, Vice President of Preciball USA, Inc. “It has a number of unique aspects in that it provides this flexible space and is adaptable to Preciball’s rapidly expanding growth. The interior of the building was designed by my partner, Elizabeth Hancock, and finished in such a way as to preserve the industrial-modern feel of our business and accommodate future staffing additions.”

Chris Tilton, President and co-founder of Dewitt Tilton Group, said his firm is honored that Preciball selected them for the project.

“One of the more interesting aspects of this project was placing the building on a very challenging site, but we were able to come up with a design that fits well in the space and works well with high-volume truck traffic,” Tilton said. “The exposed ductwork and spiral staircase leading to the second floor really gives the space a feel of a New York City industrial loft. We also designed the building with translucent paneling throughout to optimize natural lighting.”

Dewitt Tilton Group was honored with Star Building Systems’ Master Builder Award for its Preciball project. This award recognizes member builders for excellence in design and construction. The Best of the District Award for the Mid-South District went to Dewitt Tilton Group at Star’s 2017 National Meeting.

The structure itself incorporates office suites and warehouse space. Preciball occupies about half of the facility; the remaining space is leased by two other businesses. Key features include the building’s high-efficiency warehouse lighting and HVAC equipment, as well as dock-high loading doors and dock levelers. The warehouse space has wide clear-span truss construction.

From its Savannah distribution center, Preciball provides products manufactured all over the world to customers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, which made the company’s proximity to Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport, the Georgia Port, interstates I-95 and I-16 a key factor in the company’s decision to select the Pooler site.
