This historic, Gothic revival church, built in 1857, suffered a fire in June of 2011 destroying the roof over the sanctuary. GSSTJ was brought in to help the church rebuild its building envelope while maintaining the historical integrity. New circulation and assemble space were added in the re-design. All work was conformed to the existing style and quality workmanship of the original structure. In addition to a new roof, life safety upgrades were installed to make this historical structure safer for future generations, new lighting and a complete replacement of the HVAC system and additional MEP upgrades, a new fire exit and ADA compliance related improvements, complete renovation of public washrooms, and a comprehensive restoration of the exterior walls and fenestration. In order to preserve the symmetry of this historical building. Once complete the church will once again take its place as the pride of Sandersville, GA.

Alpharetta High School Career Tech Renovation

Alpharetta High School Career Tech Renovation

The Career Technology Laboratories at Alpharetta High School presented many wonderful opportunities to our design team. The opportunity to reuse portions of the existing layout and infrastructure and a short construction window of ninety days during the summer recess to complete the project in time for the new school year. We created several design strategies that utilized the existing space into completely new interior spaces and utilize the existing conditions whenever possible. The new space included technology laboratories, IT classrooms, drafting studio, and small breakout spaces for the students with a working wood shop.  Newly organized space that will allow instruction and hands on teaching to take place in the same area.  This includes new space allocations, a working wood shop, mechanical and exhaust upgrades and updated finishes.

Milner Community Library

Milner Community Library

Our firm was just recently awarded the opportunity to design the new Milner Community Library, part of the Flint River Regional Library System. The design will incorporate the essence of the City of Milner and will enhance the “community of friends and neighbors” in the “small railroad town” by providing a central educational and gathering  space that attracts the community. We will incorporate the historical nature of Milner in a structure reflective of both the time of the original establishment of the city in 1842 and the modern era in which the library will be constructed. We hope that this building provides a peaceful space that reflects the joy the community finds in healthy rural living. The interior library space will strongly relate to the natural beauty of the site.
