The Deal Sheet
Carter snagged three project management jobs at three local colleges as the higher ed market continues to run on all cylinders.
Carters SVP John Jokerst tells us the firm will handle the project management of three renovation/reuse projects, including:
- Campbell Hall at Agnes Scott College, which will transform the former science building into a 51,400 SF student housing/classroom facility.
- Richards Memorial Gymnasium at Berry College, which will include offices for Berry College athletic teams, a 4,000k SF weight room and 3,000k SF locker room.
- Reed Hall at Spelman College, which will redevelop the 53k SF facility into a wellness center that includes a four-lane swimming pool, classrooms, teaching kitchen and an indoor track.
There is certainly a desire on the part of institutions to maximize existing space to the greatest extent possible, John tells us. But the need for new facilities to address ongoing demand also remains strong. John also says the Agnes Scott project demonstrates a new trend in higher ed, where student housing is being combined with traditional educational facilities.
