Muter Construction Purchases Historic Property in Downtown Zebulon

Muter Construction is pleased to announce its relocation to 100 N. Arendell Avenue in Zebulon, NC. The firm purchased the former town hall in May 2014 and has plans to renovate the structure, which dates back to 1931.

“We are very excited to be a part of the downtown Zebulon community,” says John Muter, president of Muter Construction. “This building has a great history and good bones. It’s really a fantastic space – with original terrazzo flooring and craftsmen materials from the early 1930s. Our favorite feature is the vault that was installed when the building was built by the People’s Bank & Trust Company.”

Muter and his team moved into the space in July and have plans for phased renovations of the space. “It’s a tremendous opportunity for us to be here and to have the space to grow. It was also important to us that we be a part of a community and we have that here in the downtown area – we run over to the post office, hardware store, local restaurants – we want to patronize the local businesses so that the downtown area will continue it’s growth and revitalization.”

Muter is a strong proponent of recycling his dollars and believes his company’s relocation to the downtown building mirrors the way in which he operates his construction firm, which he founded in 2012 after working with some of the region’s largest and most successful construction companies.

“I have always made recycling dollars an important part of my business plan,” says Muter. “I believe it is important to patronize local businesses. As a business owner myself, I know how important it is to have the support of the local community. Zebulon has always been a welcoming place – the town manager, town council and public works employees have all welcomed our company with open arms.”

Muter Construction currently employs 10 people and specializes in construction projects ranging from $50,000 to $5 million. Recent notable projects include the new canopy installation at Five County Stadium and renovations to the Fort Fisher Training Center in Kure Beach, NC.
