Carter has a rich history with The Lovett School in Atlanta, and was recently hired as project manager to build a 3,800-square-foot building on the Lovett campus that will serve as the home of the school’s Scouting programs. Previously, Lovett’s Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts operated out of Trinity Presbyterian Church, but as the programs continued to grow, the school turned to Carter for help building a hut to call their own. Carter worked closely with the school community to complete the “scout hut”, deemed the Rogers and Westmoreland Activity Center.
The versatile facility will not only support various Scouting programs, but will also accommodate Lovett’s many extracurricular activities. The hut consists of a large conference room for banquets and events, as well as office and conference spaces. Groups will also have access to the catering kitchen and indoor and outdoor fireplaces.The structure of the scout hut aims to complement the unique natural forest surroundings by using all native plant resources.
The design of the building reflects the traditional scout hut theme with unfinished white pine, stone and other natural materials and is equipped with storm water infiltration basins. The project was largely funded thanks to donations from Scout groups and Lovett School parents.
