Advance Technology Center at Gulf Coast State College

Panama City, FL

 

Department:  Education

 

A groundbreaking celebration for Gulf Coast Community College’s Advanced Technology Center was held June 24, 2010. College officials, trustees, planners from Florida Architects, and other guests ceremonially broke ground for the new $35 million facility, designed from the ground up to expand and grow high-tech learning opportunities. GAC / H. J. High will serve as the Construction Manager for this exciting new project.

 

Programs that will be housed in the ATC include Sustainable Building Construction, the Entrepreneur’s Institute/Development Business Lab, the Emerging Technologies Laboratory, and an Information Technology/Computer Sciences center, just to name a few. A key goal is the integration of the curriculum with high schools to provide students with both career and educational pathways based on college credit and employer requirements.

 

College and community focus groups, as well as site visitors from the National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers, made recommendations based on assessments of current workforce and economic development operations relative to degree programs, organizational structure, funding, and the most effective use of the planned “green” and LEED gold certified ATC facility.

Panama City Beach, FL

 

Department:  Education

 

GAC Contractors served as the Construction Manager for this new K-8 school on Panama City Beach. The 1,250 student school consists of an "H" shaped main building with a separate, detached gymnasium. The center core of the building houses the Administration Suite, Media Center, Covered Play Area, Shared ESE and Skills Labs and the Art Suite. All elementary classrooms are located in the rear of the school which allows for segregation of middle school and elementary populations. The middle school area is located adjacent to the Gymnasium.

Bay Haven Charter Academy

Panama City, FL

 

Department:  Education

 

GAC Contractors served as the Construction Manager for the JRA designed Bay Haven Charter Academy. Unfortunately, wetland permitting delayed the commencement of construction on five (5) of the six (6) proposed buildings. Upon the issue of the long awaited wetlands permits, GAC accelerated the schedule and implemented other strategies to open the school six (6) months ahead of the contracted completion date.

 

Based on the strength of the Team’s efforts, GAC Contractors, JRA Architects and Bay Haven Charter Academy were the awarded the “Best Of 2005 Award” for the best K-12 Public School Project in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. This annual awards program sponsored by McGraw-Hill’s Southeast Construction magazine is judged by a panel of industry professionals.

 

Based on the success of the original project, GAC was hired by the Bay Haven Board as the Construction Manager for three (3) additional phases of construction.
