2017 AGC of Tennessee Award of Merit: Volunteer State Community College Humanities Building

Gallatin, TN

The new Humanities Building, located in the heart of campus, will be the largest on campus and will consolidate several humanities programs into one building. The building includes live recording studios, theater space, dance rooms, pottery and kiln space, computer labs, a student art gallery, and more.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) enabled our team to virtually model the facilities mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems prior to construction; this helped reduce cost and increase construction schedule reliability.
