Ajax Building Company Earns Excellence Honors from ABC of Georgia for Georiga Tech Campus Safety Facility
Alpharetta, GA —Every year Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) holds an Excellence in Construction (EIC) competition in which they honor exceptional projects based on vision, innovation, execution, safety, quality control and degree of difficulty. This year the Georgia Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology) Campus Safety Facility project has received excellence honors from ABC of Georgia, Inc. and will be highlighted in the December issue of the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
Georgia Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology) Campus Safety Facility, Atlanta, GA
Ajax and AE partner Pond & Company were each selected to construct a brand new 31,042 square foot facility allowing the campus to replace its obsolete police facilities, consolidate the units into one location, and modernize all their police functions.
The building houses all units and departments of the Georgia Tech Police Department, along with all their storage needs. The project required a significant amount of secure outdoor structured parking for patrol vehicles, utility trailers, and specialty vehicles. While many of the program elements were typical to an office building, such as offices and conference rooms, there were several unique elements specific to the function of a Police Department. Some of these elements included an Emergency Operations Center, K9 facilities, locker rooms, a Forensic Lab, and a sally-port in the basement level for secure movement of persons in custody, state of the art audio-visual equipment package, a bullet resistant barrier in reception, and high level security systems throughout the building.
This project also addressed several landscape and hardscape improvements outside the Campus Safety Facility, such as landscape & irrigation, ornamental fencing, gates, operators, LED lighted rails, asphalt paving, pervious (concrete) paving, and kennel equipment.
