The professionals that are now ReliantSouth along with joint venture partner H.J. High facilitated the recent construction of Gulf Coast State College’s $35mm Advanced Technology Center. Our team is proud to report that this award wining project that was designed by Florida Architects was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
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. A key goal of the ATC 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 silver certified ATC facility.
