University of Georgia, Terry College of Business - Correll Hall
University of Georgia, Terry College of Business - Correll Hall | Athens, Georgia
DPR was selected to build Phase I of the three-phase Business Learning Community at the University of Georgia. Located on the prominent corner of Lumpkin Street and Baxter Street in the heart of UGA’s campus, the first building, named Correll Hall, establishes this site as the new home for the Terry College Business Learning Community.
Design Team Robert A.M. Stern Architects
Correll Hall is a 75,000-sq.-ft. building that houses graduate programs, the Dean’s suite, state-of-the-art classrooms, administrative offices, and a 2-story study lounge. The upper floors house the Full-Time MBA Program offices and Career Management Center, the Dean’s and Associate Dean’s offices and the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
In complement to the existing Georgian architecture, the Community showcases red brick, limestone trim, and slate roofs with an allusion of Greek revival design.
Coordination was key for the success of this project. One example was when the fourth floor of Correll Hall was being poured, DPR was simultaneously demolishing the Sigma Chi house located next door. This required extensive coordination efforts between the project team, the University and Athens-Clarke County. Additionally, DPR utilized social media to make sure students were aware of parking lot and road closures. Because of coordination efforts, DPR was able to complete the work without incident and 10 days faster than anticipated. Being able to shave 10 days off the road closure meant campus life was back to normal well before school started for the fall.
