Construction Projects to Watch this Spring
Georgia Tech’s campus continues to grow and evolve. Right now, growing pains are particularly acute in the northwest sector of campus.
There, a few long-term projects are starting to show signs of their final state. In a few years, this area will be transformed by both new facilities and the continued completion of Tech’s long-term Eco-Commons project, which will bring greenspace and environmentally conscious landscaping, hardscaping, and stormwater management to the area.
Here’s an update on a few high-profile projects in the northwest sector and beyond.
Framing of the parking structure is nearly complete, and the building façade is taking shape. The parking deck will provide around 800 vehicle spaces, and the building portion will house research administrative officers. The project is expected to be complete this summer.
Campus Safety Facility
The exterior is nearly complete, with windows and most exterior fixtures in place. The facility is on schedule to be complete and in use this semester.
Kappa Alpha Theta House
Framing is underway for the 14,400-square-foot house for Tech’s newest sorority, which formed a campus chapter in 2016. The house is situated on Fifth Street just before the bridge to Tech Square and is scheduled to be finished this summer.
On Greenfield Street, from 10th Street to the Dalney Building site, a new water line is being installed. Work is expected to wrap up this month.
ACC Production Facility
This 6,350-square-foot facility is being constructed in anticipation of the launch of the ACC Network this fall.
A showpiece of the building was put in place in December with the installation of the steel frame for the building’s central staircase. The stairs will be formed from heart pine joists that were salvaged from the recent renovation of Tech Tower. Read more about the building’s construction process and see interior photos.
The Library renewal project continues, with Crosland Tower now functioning as Tech’s Library home. Price Gilbert is scheduled to be complete in 2020. Learn more at librarynext.gatech.edu.
