The two-story, 47,000 sq. ft. Allied Healthcare building is located on the West Georgia Technical College Coweta Campus in Newnan, GA. Designed to achieve LEED Silver certification, the building is part of an expansion after the established campus outgrew its home base.
Health care is a booming industry in the Atlanta metropolitan area, and the Allied Health building helps educate students to fill that void. The multi-purpose building serves a variety of needs, containing administrative and faculty offices, a lecture hall, teaching labs, healthcare and health sciences classrooms, student center, library, and bookstore.
Working on an accelerated schedule to complete the project in time for the upcoming school session, Fabral concealed fastener Silhouette HCF Series™ wall panels were used in conjunction with adjacent materials, windows and design elements. In the building’s courtyard, perforated aluminum panels provide relief from the Georgia sun while also filtering wind.
This facility won a first place award in the 2014 AGC Build Georgia program.
The general contractor for the project was RK Redding of Bremen, GA. The architect/designer was Praxis3 of Atlanta, GA. The metal products dealer was MillerClapperton of Austell, GA.
