Young Harris,

Campus Center Business Planning And Program Management

In 2008 Young Harris College retained B&D to serve as its representative and primary interface with the selected architects and construction management firm in the design and construction of a new campus center. Having recently received accreditation as a four-year, baccalaureate degree-granting institution, the college planned to begin offering upper level classes in 2009. As it expanded from a two- to a four-year institution, new campus facilities would be needed to meet the projected increase in student enrollment. Serving as the program manager for the college, we managed the design and construction of the campus center in a manner consistent with the development budget and desired program, while keeping the college fully informed on issues related to scheduling, design, construction, and budgeting. The campus center will include the following spaces: primary campus library and special collections area; digital media center; primary campus dining facility for all students, faculty, and staff; student union; center for academic success; student organization spaces; large events spaces / event ballroom; presidential board room; multiple academic meeting spaces; student government chambers; convenience store; game room and television lounges; administrative office suites; and information technology office suite and campus data center. We were retained in 2013 to develop a business plan for the $41 million Rollins Campus Center. This 121,000 SF facility opened in 2014, is certified LEED Gold, and won Best Project in Higher Education/Research from ENR Southeast in 2015.
