Structural Features

  • This adaptive reuse project converted the dormant college campus into the GDOC headquarters and training academy.
  • The facilities opened after four years of research, planning, infrastructure upgrades, and the full rehabilitation of 13 structures, some of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places dating back to 1883.
  • Design challenges included the complexity of rehabilitating structures from many different eras and also addressing compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act while creating a cohesive campus and preserving character-defining elements.
