PEABODY COLLEGE OF EDUCATION AT VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY
Project scope includes 55,000 SF of renovations to two existing 1912-era Beaux Arts academic buildings, repurposing existing spaces for classroom and administrative use. Challenges for the project seeking LEED Gold included full upgrades for all services, state-of-the-art IT/AV instructional spaces, and exterior historic restorations of the exterior. SGA has designed a 16,000 SF ‘jewel box’ connector addition that serves as a new student center for graduate programs, capturing 3,000 SF for active learning classrooms, and fulfilling Peabody College’s wish to create a new school center. Vanderbilt is thrilled to be able to add these facilities in the Fall of 2020.
