Located adjacent to the historic Old Capitol Building in Milledgeville, the Academic Building at Georgia Military College is the center for student life on campus. The project included renovations to the existing Zell Miller Hall, construction of a complementary flanking New Academic Building wing and construction of a new Student Union Atrium spanning the two academic wings. The project was designed by Lord, Aeck & Sargent and construction management was performed by The Beck Group. It was completed in 2010.

The Building supplements Georgia Military College’s academic capabilities with the addition of eight classrooms, physics and chemistry labs, computer lab, art facilities, a 450-seat auditorium and faculty offices. The new Student Union Atrium includes a cafeteria, bookstore, coffee shop, student center and queuing area for Parade Grounds exercises.

GEC performed all construction services for the project, including soil, concrete and masonry testing as well as structural steel inspection and stormwater monitoring.
