Leapley was on-site at the University of Georgia College of Engineering wall breaking at Driftmier Engineering Center on Thursday, Dec. 13. Attendees ceremoniously broke through a cinderblock wall to commemorate the start of the Driftmier renovation project.

“To be part of a project that will impact generations is what we as contractors love to be a part of,” says Mike Pierce, Leapley’s senior project manager selected for the project. “We are honored to restore and enhance Driftmier Hall for the next generation of students and future engineers.”

Scheduled to open in fall 2019, the first phase of the project will expand and upgrade the College of Engineering’s undergraduate teaching laboratories and classrooms. Designed to promote project-based learning and collaboration, more than 13,000 square feet of state-of-the-art instructional space is added to Driftmier. The scope includes modern wet and dry instructional labs designed to support the college’s undergraduate and graduate degree programs and undergraduate research.
