Jackson Healthcare will start work within months on a $100 million expansion in Alpharetta that will provide a host of amenities to employees, officials said Friday.

The company, a national staffing firm for healthcare, plans to add 306,000 square feet to its headquarters, enough to handle 1,400 more employees, the company said.

Jackson now has about 1,100 employees, 898 of them in metro Atlanta. The expansion, which will take about 18 months to complete, will include an eight-story, 267,000 square foot office building and a separate “amenities” building, officials said.

That second, 39,000 square-foot structure will include a gym, an indoor pool, a barber shop, a salon, childcare facilities, a tanning salon and a restaurant. The project will include a parking garage that could handle 1,385 cars.

Architect for the project is Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, LLC Architecture + Interior Design, which designed a piazza meant to evoke Italy, officials said. Jackson, which is privately held, had annual revenues of $798 million in 2015. The company is parent to a number of subsidiaries, including LocumTenens.

It has offices in seven states and places healthcare workers around the county. The Alpharetta campus will be home to employees, many of whom will be tech workers and sales staff.

Jackson and the city negotiated an economic incentive package as part of the planned expansion. Messages left Friday afternoon to the Alpharetta Community Development Department were not returned.
