Electric Vehicle Manufacturing Facility, Georgia Piedmont Technical College
Pond was selected to provide architectural, engineering, environmental and planning services for Georgia Piedmont Technical College's Center for Innovation and Emerging Technologies. The center is focused on the growth of the advanced manufacturing workforce within the Technical College System of Georgia program. With a focus on electric vehicles and electric aviation manufacturing and maintenance, the facility aims to be at the forefront of the next generation of transportation technology. To align the campus with the principles of electric vehicle technology, the facility aims to achieve a carbon-neutral footprint - exceeding the current Georgia Peach rating system. To do so, the facility will employ rainwater harvesting to provide gray water where allowed. The facility plans to use a co-generated power solution that will push energy back to the power grid when there is a surplus of energy production. Building materials are to use local resources and recycled products to reduce the Day 1 footprint and future impact. The facility includes a series of labs and flexible spaces designed to accommodate not only electrical vehicle and aviation technology as it is understood today but also the ability to flex and respond to the future needs that will arise as technology develops. The building provides a series of 'black box' labs with the necessary infrastructure for Day 1 and future infrastructure supplied to the labs. Pond worked closely with the OEM and GPTC to develop a cohesive design language that directly responds to the campus's and OEM partners' programs, mission, and identity.
