A New Campus Vision

Located on an 96-acre site in Northeast Georgia, Stevens & Wilkinson worked with prime design professional Pond, and Lanier Technical College on the new Hall County Campus. Construction took place over a three-year period and includes six new buildings, associated surface parking, and related site amenities. The new 325,000-square foot replacement campus is slated to achieve two out of three peaches from Georgia’s Sustainable Design Grading Program.

Campus Vision and Project Goals: The new vision for the Lanier Technical College site is to provide a 21st Century Campus for education, continuing education and workforce development training opportunities over various programs.

Programming Project Goals

The following project goals/objectives were identified: 1) Create a “cutting edge” campus that fits into the architectural vernacular of the community; 2) Integrate Student Life activities throughout each new facility on campus; 3) Create a campus that will become a showplace for economic development; 4) Incorporate spaces for future growth; and 5) Create buildings that are distinctive in character and that promote student success via a nurturing campus environment that will become “the place to be” for students, staff, the community, and industry partners to work, learn and expand workforce opportunities. In addition to the Campus Support facilities, Technology & Industrial Education and Allied Health, Stevens & Wilkinson worked on the following projects: Breeden-Giles Hall Administration & Student Success Center, Chris Riley Instructional Building, and Wilbur & Dixie Ramsey Conference Center.

Pond (prime design professional), in association with Stevens & Wilkinson was selected to provide professional design services for the college’s new Gainesville campus. Stevens & Wilkinson supported the overall design team by leading the Programming effort for the entire campus, leading the interior design and furnishing, fixture, and equipment (FF&E) efforts for the entire campus, and providing overall design team project management. Stevens & Wilkinson also provided full architecture and engineering design services as Architect of Record for the Breeden-Giles Hall Administration Building, the Chris Riley Instructional Building, and the Wilbur and Dixie Ramsey Conference Center.

The Lanier Technical College Hall County Replacement Campus includes the addition of six new facilities, totaling more than 325,000-square feet.
