GMC construction gets a lift from 110 tons of equipment

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Skanska Construction Group used two cranes, weighing 110 tons and 130 tons, Wednesday to place two 11,000-pound support beams onto the roof of the new court area of the $17 million Health and Wellness Center at Georgia Military College.

"Curved structural members to connect all of the beams together and support roofing material should be coming in the next day or two. They’re working toward getting the roof on and getting the building closed off," said Jeff Gray, GMC vice president for engineering services. "The next step is to put an arch to connect all of the beams to form a barrel-shaped roof. It’s really shaping up and you can start to see all of the different rooms laid out, like the band room, offices and classrooms."

The construction crew is in the midst of installing duct work and plumbing on the lower level, and erecting steel on the middle floor.

The new state-of-the-art facility will provide appropriate space to educate GMC preparatory and college students on health, nutrition and fitness once complete in mid-March of 2014.
