University of Georgia Tate Center

The Tate Center Expansion at the University of Georgia is a full service Student Union in the center of campus. The building design includes a large ballroom, retail, offices, meeting rooms, a 508-space parking deck, five restaurants and a cafeteria. The project is approximately a 100,000 sf addition to the existing Tate Student Center constructed on top of the parking deck. A high pedestrian bridge connects the Tate addition to the nearby Miller Learning Center.

This project achieved LEED Gold Certification, becoming the first LEED Certified project on the University of Georgia’s campus.
