Georgia Perimeter College
Georgia Perimeter College engaged Carter to serve as master planner for the development of a new campus in the eastern suburbs of Atlanta. Carter worked with the College on site selection, due diligence and master planning. Georgia Perimeter, now in the process of consolidating with Georgia State University, was Georgia’s largest two-year school at the time of these projects.
Carter also worked with the University System Board of Regents to gain the approval to develop another 100-acre campus on rural land along I-20 in Newton County. Once the campus was defined and approved, Carter was retained to oversee the development of the campus’ first multi-purpose academic building on the property. Carter led the selection of the underwriter, the design team and the construction manager for a 105,000-square-foot building with classrooms, faculty offices, campus administration, and student services components to support all aspects of student life on a new commuter campus. The project also included the design and construction of a mile of new roads and a 975-car parking lot, as well as the installation of all utilities for the building on a previously undeveloped piece of property.
The program completed on time and within budget. The funding assembly, which Carter helped to organize and administer, was made up of five different public and private funding sources. The on-schedule delivery and cost control, and the mix of public-private funding
