The School of Building Construction is partnering with CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) and PADV (a non-profit organization, Partnership Against Domestic Violence) PADV operates shelters for battered women and their children.  Student teams will analyze all facets of the current midtown Atlanta shelter. Determining whether PADV should remain in the current Atlanta location and renovate, or sell this location and move to a new site, remaining in Fulton County. The student group will make its recommendations in a final presentation to the PADV Board in late 2016. Throughout the Fall semester, Georgia Tech students will work with their professor, as well as members of CREW which will give them exposure to many Atlanta professions in every arm of the design and construction industry. The Georgia Tech group will primarily focus on the programming, design, construction, and potential sustainability certification (LEED) aspects of the analysis.
