City of Riverdale Community Center

City of Riverdale Community Center

City of Riverdale Community Center The image of the City of Riverdale is to be progressive with a new original architectural character by Sizemore Group. The Civic Center includes a new City Hall, Community Center (including gymnasium and dance studio), and the Amphitheater constitutes about 15 acres. The large recreation space doubles as a performance space for 1,000 people. A large divisible meeting space spills out onto an elevated terrace. The Community Center and City Hall are the edges of an amphitheater with an interactive fountain. “We first selected The Sizemore Group after watching them help transform the City of Smyrna into what it is today, and we knew that we needed the same type of catalytic project. We not only wanted our buildings to make a statement, we also needed them to be LEED certified, help the city address utility costs and conserve water, and provide very specific functions. It was clear that we were trying to create something that the metro area hadn’t seen before. “Sizemore made our vision a reality and put the city on the map. They helped us convert a small pocket park into a cultural nexus that has brought new energy to the city. Our new Town Center – which includes a City Hall, community center, amphitheater, and large recreation space – attracts visitors from all over the region and has served as a nucleus for new development.” – Doug Manning, Director of Operations ,Butts County Board of Commissioners Office Services Master Planning Architectural Design Construction Administration Awards AIA Georgia 2013 Merit Design Award Silver in the 2013 Brick in Architecture Awards by the...
Dekalb Academy of Technology and Environment Gym, Cafeteria and Classroom Addition

Dekalb Academy of Technology and Environment Gym, Cafeteria and Classroom Addition

Dekalb Academy of Technology and Environment Gym, Cafeteria and Classroom Addition DATE moved into three different leased facilities during the school’s brief three year history. Sizemore Group showed them that it was possible to purchase their existing building, to increase the number of K-8 home room classrooms, and to add science labs, a cafeteria, and a gymnasium at a carrying cost which they could afford. Initial sketches showed the Board and the Parents that it was possible to achieve their dreams. The time line was also incredibly compact because of the financing time line, and the need to purchase the building before their option ran out. Sizemore Group put together a Design-Build team who worked together under the compact time frame to allow the interior renovations to be completed during the summer months, and the support spaces in the addition to be complete soon after. The addition is a low energy, low maintenance, fully daylighted building.

Hapeville Charter Career Academy High School Building

Hapeville Charter Career Academy High School Building

Hapeville Charter Career Academy High School Building This facility is the first non-profit owned Charter Career Academy in Georgia. It was designed as a LEED building to be built in eight months, from “we need a building but we don’t have a site”, to move-in with all the furniture and technology needed for a future oriented course of study. The Ninth Grade Academy (15,000 sf) was the first element of Hapeville Charter Career Academy’s High School. It was also one of the first five charter academy’s to receive a grant for construction from the State of Georgia. The Ninth Grade Academy was converted into an Eighth Grade Academy as part of a second phase of construction including a larger, 55,000 s.f. high school building. Five areas of professional certifications are provided in conjunction with Atlanta Technical College including Avionics Technician, Paralegal, Patient Care Assisting, Dental Assisting and Front-end Alignment / Brakes / Steering Systems. “When we first began with Sizemore, we hadn’t even selected a location yet. But in less than one year, we were already settled into an innovative and award-winning building, thanks to their talented team. “They patiently guided us through the entire process. We had numerous stakeholders with very different perspectives and priorities involved, including instructors, department heads, representatives from our dual-enrollment partner schools, and even county and state officials. And our Sizemore team very effectively brought together and listened to all stakeholders to ensure that the building would meet – and exceed – all needs.  “I came to this project with no knowledge of architecture and didn’t know what to expect, and they made the...
