College of Coastal Georgia Student Housing
In August 2009, the College of Coastal Georgia selected Carter to provide program management services for both the student housing and campus center projects. As the campus moves from a commuter school to a traditional four-year program with an emphasis in nursing and science programs, Carter will provide project oversight.
The Campus Center project will consist of 47,500 SF and is a $12 million project. Pending the sale of GHEFA Bonds, construction will start in July 2010 and project completion is slated for August 2011. The Campus Center is a two story building that will include: Bookstore, Dining Hall, Student Life offices, Health Center, Student Gathering/hangout areas, large Terrace/Patio and Theatre. The architecture is a Spanish Mission style to match the existing campus and the new Health and Science Building.
The $14 million Student Housing project consists of 352 beds and is the first student housing facility on the campus. Facility architecture will reflect the coastal characteristics of the surrounding geographic area. The facility completed in July 2011.
The Campus Center, the Student Housing and the Health and Science Building are the first new buildings on campus in over 20 years and are going to set the Architecture tone for the campus as the College continues to grow. The College of Coastal Georgia has just recently become a four year institution and these new buildings are supporting the College’s growth and reflects the change in its mission.
