Rollins School of Public Health and the GA Tech G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons have both been recognized by the Georgia ACI award winning projects for 2010. The annual awards competition recognizes and honors creative, innovative, aesthetic and imaginative uses of concrete and concrete masonry in new construction and concrete restoration projects.
Rollins School of Public Health received the first place award for mid-rise buildings. The 169,000 square foot, nine story facility was constructed with over 9,000 cubic yards of concrete. The combination of strength and aesthetic appeal of cast-in-place concrete allowed for design features such as a tri-level open plaza six-tiered auditorium, exposed structural concrete columns and ceilings throughout, and cantilever balconies on every floor.
The Georgia Tech G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons received an outstanding achievement award for mid-rise buildings. This academic enrichment center will play an important role for every student on the Georgia Tech campus. The structural concrete design was an easy choice for the owner and designers. This 215,000 square foot, five story facility was constructed with 14,000 cubic yards of concrete. The bold and enduring characteristics of concrete were used in the exposed floors, exposed columns, elevated plates and elaborate exposed cast-in-place staircases. Georgia Tech anticipates using this facility as a cornerstone for their recruiting tours with students for the next several years.
