2 Major Construction Projects Get Started This Semester
Approximations of the sites for the Campus Safety Building and The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design. Construction at both projects will begin this month. Later this year, the Dalney deck and building site will be activated just south of the Centennial Research Building.
During the next two years, the Northwest sector of campus is going to see a dramatic transformation.
This month, work will begin on the Campus Safety Building, the new home for the Georgia Tech Police Department that will take shape at the corner of Hemphill Avenue and 10th Street.
Work is also set to begin on The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design. In the coming weeks, site work will begin for the project that is set to rise from a surface parking lot at the corner of State Street and Ferst Drive.
Within the next six months, work will also begin at the Dalney deck and office building on Dalney Street, near the intersection with Greenfield Street.
The campus community can expect some near-term construction impacts. Both the Campus Safety Building and Kendeda projects will be active within the next two weeks. Fencing will be erected at the Kendeda site, beginning Feb. 6. Site fencing will include sections of surface lots within the project boundary.
On Dalney Street, through traffic to Ferst Drive will be closed where it passes through the Kendeda project site. Major work on the Dalney project is not expected to begin until May.
Facilities Management will share more detailed site plans and logistics in the coming weeks.
