Carter Wins 3 New College Projects in GA

Carter has been selected to provide program/project management services for three colleges in Georgia — Agnes Scott College, Berry College and Spelman College. The company will provide a range of services including design and construction management, site selection, and furniture, fixtures and equipment coordination.
“There continues to be a strong demand for traditional program management services within the higher-education sector,” said John Jokerst, senior vice president of development at Carter. “With ever-changing and evolving project types, as well as the shift in how higher education projects are funded, Carter’s ability to adapt to changes and provide the same level of service to our clients enables us to maintain our trusted partnerships with these institutions. In fact, 80 percent of our higher education clients are repeat clients, including the three named here.”

  • At Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Ga., Carter has been selected to provide program management to guide the design and construction for the renovation of Campbell Hall, a four-story former science building. The 51,450-square-foot building will be transformed into an innovative living and learning center, which will include student housing, academic classrooms and collaborative meeting spaces.
  • For Berry College in Rome, Ga., Carter is currently working on project management for the renovation of the Richards Memorial Gymnasium, which will include offices for Berry College athletic teams, a 4,000-square-foot weight room, a 3,000-square-foot locker room, grass practice fields and an indoor practice/training facility. Carter has also been working with Berry on an athletic stadium for its new NCAA Division III football program.
  • In Atlanta, Spelman College selected Carter as a program manager to oversee the redevelopment of the 53,000-square-foot Read Hall into a wellness center. The program is part of Spelman’s Wellness Revolution and includes a new gymnasium, four-lane swimming pool, wellness classroom and teaching kitchen, multipurpose rooms for fitness activities, an indoor track, lockers and administrative offices. Additionally, Carter guided the college in the selection of the design and construction team and is managing the project delivery process. The new facility is slated for completion in 2015.

“Carter continues to prove its long-term commitment to providing project/program management services that deliver the highest-quality projects for our clients,” said Carter President Scott Taylor. “Additionally, our higher-education group boasts an immense portfolio, including everything from multi-facility capital improvement programs in excess of $100 million to single building renovations and restorations.” For more information on the three new projects, read the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s article.
Carter’s higher-education group has managed over $2.5 billion in new projects and capital improvements on more than 70 projects at 30 different campuses. Last year, Carter was selected to provide program management services for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s new 170,000-square-foot student union.
