UGA Driftmier Engineering Center Phases 1-4
Originally built in 1966, the Driftmier Engineering Center at the University of Georgia underwent a major renovation to support education and research in eight engineering disciplines. Leapley revitalized 42,500-sf in Phases 1-2 to create two new auditoriums, student gathering spaces, restrooms, wet and dry laboratories, and tech-forward instructional spaces. While building upgrades to the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protections systems and improving accessibility to the new spaces, Leapley delivered a unique fume hood room that is shared by the wet labs to provide storage and setup space for programmatic flexibility of some of the dry labs. Currently delivering Phases 3-4 of the renovation, Leapley continues to partner with UGA to enhance this dynamic learning environment where future engineers lead the nation in devising innovative solutions to global challenges.
