Joyce K. and John A. Caddell Building

Fabricated by King Steel Company, Inc. (AISC Member, AISC Certified), The Joyce K. and John A. Caddell Building on the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology is a complete interior and exterior renovation of a 1950's-era Naval Reserve motor pool building into the new School of Building Construction. The overall strategy is one of maximum visibility, campus engagement and energy reduction through the use of a whole-building shading structure and interior daylighting. The building transforms what was a diminutive background structure into an engagingly transparent and high-efficiency example of contemporary re-use in an urban campus setting. While the functional assignment was to create a 10,600-square-foot facility to include flexible format teaching areas, collaborative spaces and faculty offices, the larger ambition was to create a building "that excels in collaboration, sustainability, and technology."
