University of West Georgia Student Center
To accommodate the rapidly increasing student body, the University of West Georgia set out to renovate and expand its existing student center. Serving as program manager for the project, Carter oversaw the design and construction of the new facility as well as assisted the university in selecting an underwriter, architect and contractor. The renovation of the student center encompassed 44,000 square feet, and the new construction consisted of 86,000 square feet. Men’s and women’s locker rooms, a 50-foot climbing wall, a 12,000-square-foot fitness area, a ballroom, two basketball courts, meeting and board rooms, staff offices, student activity offices, an indoor track and an outdoor plaza are a few of the new features. Carter completed the project ontime and with savings returned to the client in August 2006.
