The city issued a permit Thursday for Auld & White Constructors LLC to renovate space in a Southpoint building for use by Genpact.
Genpact is a New York-based global firm that provides digital professional services.
Auld & White will renovate almost 110,000 square feet of space in the three-story building at 6737 Southpoint Drive S. at a job cost of $4.66 million.
In August 2018, Genpact was preparing to lease most of the three-story Innovation Park building to accommodate 800 jobs.
The company will lease part of the first and all the second and third floors at the structure, a building previously used by CSX Corp. It is not clear if all of the floors will be occupied initially.

In July 2018, the city issued a permit for Auld & White to perform some interior demolition of the space at a project cost of $115,000.
Genpact has been leasing space at Capital Plaza at 10401 Deerwood Park Blvd. S. It signed that lease for 37,000 square feet of space in spring 2017.
Genpact spokeswoman Danielle D'Angelo said the company expects the Genpact site to be completed in the first quarter.
Genpact then will determine plans for the Capital Plaza space.
“Jacksonville is an important market for Genpact, and continues to provide a skilled talent pool for our customer service operations,” she said in an emailed statement.
Colliers International Northeast Florida announced in August 2018 that the Innovation Park landlord signed a lease for more than 100,000 square feet of office space for an unidentified “marquee tenant” at the building.
Colliers said then about 800 employees will occupy the majority of the 139,825-square-foot building.
