Turner Lynch Campus Center
The Turner Lynch Campus Center serves as the hub of Oglethorpe’s campus life. The Center provides flexible, multi-purpose spaces including a full-service kitchen and dining hall, meeting and conference rooms, a coffee shop, bookstore, campus life offices, a game room and indoor and outdoor lounge/study areas.
Construction of the project involved demolition of the existing student center which housed the kitchen and dining hall. Critical to successful implementation of the new Campus Center project was creation of a creative solution for temporary facilities including a temporary kitchen and food storage facilities achieved via modular units as well as a specialized interim dining facility.
The project also involved complex stream restoration and remediation of a stream which flows across the property and involved close coordination with the Army Corps of Engineers. Innovative storm water detention and water quality features were important to Oglethorpe University and incorporated as an integral part of the civil design of the project.
