Quick Start’s Latest Training Center Takes Shape on Pooler’s Megasite
Hussey Gay Bell, in association with Architect of Record BRPH, provided design services for the $17.6 million project which is located on the Pooler Megasite at the northeast corner of the intersection of I-95 and I-16 on the north side of Savannah. The 50,000-square-foot facility houses laboratory spaces, computer labs, classrooms, meeting rooms and administrative spaces. It also includes the space and equipment to deliver customized training in all core and emerging technologies in advanced manufacturing, including welding, mechatronics, control systems, automation and robots, industrial technologies and networked wireless systems of sensors, software, equipment and operation controls.
The center, which was completed in 2019, is run by Quick Start, Georgia’s internationally acclaimed program providing customized training free-of-charge to qualified new, expanding and existing businesses.
Administered through the Technical College System of Georgia, it’s widely considered one of the state’s most important economic development incentives for attracting new investment and promoting job creation. It was constructed by Savannah-based DPR Construction.
