UGA's Terry College of Business Dedicates Ivester Hall and Orkin Hall at Business Learning Community

The M. Douglas Ivester Hall and Sanford and Barbara Orkin Hall at the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia, was dedicated today. The two new buildings are the third and final phase of the Colleges' Business Learning Community.

Built and organized to form a quadrangle to its north and a courtyard to its south on a prominent site adjacent to the University's historic core, the 304,000-square-foot, six-building Learning Community negotiates a 40-foot change in grade as it steps down from north to south. Dedicated in 2015, Correll Hall accommodates the College's graduate programs, multiple project team rooms, a business innovation lab, classrooms, graduate commons, and central administration; the three phase II buildings—Amos Hall, Moore-Rooker Hall, and Benson Hall—which opened in 2017, house undergraduate programs, food services, two large auditoriums, a capital markets lab, a music business lab, multi-purpose event space, classrooms, and the Casey Commons; and the two phase three buildings flanking the Coca-Cola Plaza—Sanford and Barbara Orkin Hall and Ivester Hall—which opened in time for the Fall 2019 semester, provide additional classrooms, research labs, staff offices, and conference rooms.

Primarily neo-Georgian in expression, the Business Learning Community incorporates Greek Revival motifs, carrying forward the historic red-brick palette, limestone trim, and slate roofs common to both the University of Georgia and the architecture of Athens.

RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern, Kevin M. Smith, Jennifer L. Stone, and Graham S. Wyatt led the design effort. Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio LLC served as the architect of record for Phase I, and Collins Cooper Carusi Architects served as the architect of record for the second and third phases.
