Alabama Center for the Arts, Phase 2 – Decatur, Alabama

TTL, Inc. provided geotechnical engineering, construction material testing, and special inspection services on the new Phase II project for the Alabama Center for the Arts located in downtown Decatur. The facility is a collaborative effort between Calhoun Community College and Athens State University. TTL worked closely with Calhoun and the design team during design and construction. The $14 million, 44,000 square-foot facility broke ground in June 2014 and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016. The multi-story facility will contain two concert halls/theaters, classrooms, and studios. The black box theater will also double as a community tornado shelter. The Alabama Center for the Arts provides an anchor for higher education in the city of Decatur.
