Contractors Make Case for LEED With Georgia State Law Building
Georgia State University’s $63-million, 200,000-sq-ft law college—its first dedicated legal education facility—includes 21 classrooms, a conference center, a 230-seat ceremonial courtroom and a two-story law library and sits on a tight, 2.4-acre site in downtown Atlanta. The structure also stands as GSU’s first LEED-rated facility. The McCarthy-led team used BIM 360 software to communicate quality control notes and punch-list items with all subcontractors, designers, GSU and the Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission. The project came in $1 million under budget.
