By Tom Morgan, senior project manager, Carter
The Health and Science Building is open for the 2011 spring semester at the College of Coastal Georgia. Carter played a key role in the 50,000-square-foot project that was completed last month.
The college is currently seeking LEED Silver certification for the building.
The $15.8 million project is the new home of the college’s Nursing, Radiological and Clinical Lab Technology programs. Carter served as the project manager during the design and planning phases that began in the fall of 2008. Carter also took a lead role in the specifications, procurement and installation of the furniture, fixtures and equipment (FFE).
It is exciting to be a part of this project that has improved College of Coastal Georgia’s facilities and helped them become a baccalaureate degree granting institution. This is the first new building the college has built in approximately 30 years and Carter is pleased to have the opportunity to currently be managing two more projects for the institution.
Built with students’ learning experience top of mind, the building includes state-of-the-art laboratories, observation areas, patient exam rooms, study rooms and a 125-seat tiered classroom.
