Carter to Renovate Historic Building at Spelman College in Atlanta

ATLANTA (Mar. 1, 2011) – Carter announced today it has been selected as program manager for the renovations to Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Hall located on the historic oval on Spelman College’s campus (top left photo).

The 20,000-square-foot mixed-use renovation will include study space and technology space on the main level and a 40 bed student housing area on the second and third floor.

The historic building was designed by Hentz, Reid & Adler and completed in 1918.  The original home of the college’s Home Economics program, it was converted to the school of nursing in 1930. Most recently the building has been used for a child development center on the ground floor and student housing. 

“It is both an honor and a privilege to work on a building that was originally designed by Hentz, Reid & Adler on Spelman College’s historic campus,” said Gary Paetau, (middle right photo)  senior vice president with Carter. “We are looking forward to working with Spelman on renovating this facility that plays such an important role in the college’s rich history.”

Menefee + Winter is the architect for the project and Winter Construction Company is the general contractor.  The project is seeking LEED silver certification and is slated to be completed in July 2012.
