2016 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION

CHAPIN BUILDING
Georgia Tech
Atlanta, Fulton County

Constructed in 1910 as Georgia Tech's first campus infirmary, the Neoclassical building was altered to meet the changing needs of the school throughout the 20th century. Its recent rehabilitation returned the historic room configurations, restored the plaster walls and ceilings to near-original heights, restored unique attic 'ventilators' and removed non-historic elements. The entire building was sensitively upgraded, achieving LEED Gold sustainability status. Rehabilitated according to the Campus Historic Preservation Plan, the Chapin Building now houses the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion.
