We’re so proud of Emory University and New South Construction for receiving a 2020 CMAA Project Achievement Award for Emory’s Convocation Hall. This project won the award for renovation/modernization of a private building under $15 million. Congratulations to a great team on a project well done!

Tech Tower Lawn

Construction is wrapping up for the current phase of Georgia Tech’s renovation of the Tech Tower lawn. The project area is located below the iconic Tech Tower and serves as a prominent gateway into campus off of North Avenue. The current phase will improve a parking lot adjacent to the lawn, including hardscape and drainage improvements. A future phase will focus on improving the lawn area itself and will aim to return the geometry and circulation patterns to historical precedents. Breedlove Land Planning is providing landscape architecture and civil engineering services for this project. We are honored to help revamp such a significant part of campus!

UGA Transit Facility

Breedlove Land Planning is the lead designer for Phase 1 of the University of Georgia’s project to update the infrastructure at the UGA Transit Facility. The project is planned in phases to accommodate the university’s gradual transition to an electric bus fleet. They are receiving the Proterra buses in phases as their manufacturing and commissioning is complete. The new fleet will significantly reduce emissions and create opportunities for experiential learning and research.

UGA’s transit system is the state’s second largest bus system in ridership behind MARTA, serving 11 million passengers per year. Phase 1 of the project accommodates charging 22 buses, and BLP hopes to continue work on Phase 2, which is anticipated to include 34 more charging spaces covered by a solar canopy. Womack & Associates was a consultant under BLP for the project’s electrical design.

UGA Dedication Ceremony for the Completed Business Learning Community


On September 6, UGA dedicated the final two buildings of the recently completed Business Learning Community. The two buildings, Sanford and Barbara Orkin Hall and M. Douglas Ivester Hall, complete the new Terry College of Business campus. BLP provided civil engineering services for Phases II and III of the six-building, three-phase project.

UGA Pedestrian Bridge

Breedlove Land Planning is currently assisting the University of Georgia Facilities Maintenance Division with the replacement of a pedestrian bridge off East Campus Road. The pedestrian bridge spans the railway below to serve as a primary connection between South Campus and East Campus, home to the Ramsey Student Center for Physical Activities, the UGA Performing Arts Center, the Georgia Museum of Art, and East Campus Village Housing. Approaching the bridge, you will enter through the newly redesigned gateway plaza. The new plaza features thoughtful delineation between circulation and seating zones, a bio-diverse plant palette and a new home for the “split-screw” sculpture.
