Clayco Begins Savannah College of Art and Design Residential Project
Clayco Begins Savannah College of Art and Design Residential Project Space Will Feature New Residential Hall, Parking Garage and Renovated Dining Facility
CHICAGO (January 8, 2013) – Clayco, Inc. has begun work on the Savannah College of Art and Design’s new residential facility in Savannah, Ga. Three buildings will surround Montgomery Hall including a new residential hall with space for about 500 beds, a renovated 14,300 square foot dining hall that previously served as a warehouse and a new 400 car parking garage adjacent to the residential hall. The parking garage has been completed. The residential and dining facilities are slated to be fully complete by July 31, 2013.
Montgomery Hall is an academic building that houses animation, interactive design labs, game development and motion/media design. Students living in the surrounding structure will experience the same kind of high tech designs and capabilities in their living quarters.
“Because the students are very tech savvy, conference rooms and student gathering spaces will be supporting a lot of high tech capabilities, including visual and gaming capabilities,” said Steve Street, Project Executive.
The garage was started in June 2012 and was completed by September 2012. Students were happy to see the garage completed and ready for use when they returned for the new school year.
“This project is a challenge because students and faculty have access to Montgomery Hall and the garage at all times. As builders, we have to be aware of the students and faculty and make sure they are safe while working in such tight spaces,” said Street.
Partners for this project include Mackey Mitchell as architect of record for the residence hall and Dawson Architecture as architect of record for the dining hall renovation.
