To better accommodate growing programs, overall enrollment growth and the evolving needs of its students, Gwinnett Technical College is expanding its main campus building by around 80,000 square feet and renovating around 36,000 square feet.
The renovation and addition will cover new physics and chemistry labs, computer labs, classrooms, student spaces and offices. A flexible swing lab can be used for different science lab classes as needed.
The labs were designed using a modularity concept to create a systematic approach to the use of space and provide flexibility and adaptability if the college’s program needs change in the future.
The college is strongly focus on making its students highly employable after graduation. New class offerings with simulation spaces for gaming and cyber security also will be housed in this portion of the building. Those programs will provide a “war room” experience for students with complex AV and IT needs.
Originally completed in 1984 with subsequent expansions, Building 100 is currently a single-story building covering more than 250,000 square feet. The building is visible from the adjacent highway and the second story addition will increase its visibility within the community.
