Project Budget
$11 Million

With limited buildable area on their established Beltline Campus, Midlands Technical College is seeking to replace their current library/classroom building in the heart of campus with a new facility that is not only state-of-the-art, but also one third larger in area than the current building. This three-story building will become the focal point of the Beltline Campus along Rosewood Drive and feature technology-rich classrooms and computer labs on the ground floor — many equipped with distance learning capabilities. The second level contains the main entrance to the library, and aligns with existing grade on the east. A learning commons is located in the lobby and opens to a new “outdoor living room” at the campus center. A third level contains the remainder of the library program, and features much needed study rooms in a variety of sizes.  The Academic Success Center with onsite tutoring and the college’s brand new Life Skills Center will also be located on the upper level of the building.

The library will unite various campus functions to become a one-stop shop for students and faculty offering flexible and collaborative work areas, traditional quiet study space, group study, a learning commons, more than 100 computer stations, faculty offices, the Center for Academic Success, and the Life Skills Center. The project will be designed to achieve LEED Silver certification, the first on the Beltline Campus.

$5 (+ convenience fee) Presentation, Tour, and Lunch @ 12pm.
