Berry College’s new SkyDeck™ left Sanford and headed to Georgia on March 30. A little birdie tells me that the installation wrapped up today.
Known as one of Georgia’s most beautiful campuses, Berry College is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Mount Berry, GA. Founded in 1902, the 27,000 acre campus is one of the largest in the world.
In 2015, Berry College announced a 6.7-million-dollar expansion for Blackstone Hall, which included a new theatre. With ticket sales up 50%, officials recognized more space and up-to-date facilities were required to continue serving the students and community. Significant upgrades included state-of-the-art lighting and technology, and a 4,000 square foot, full-coverage SkyDeck™ tension wire grid. The grid features two hinged panels.
Students, faculty, donors, and friends gathered to see progress on the building in late February 2017. Steve Briggs, Berry College President, said, “This, my friends, is for you”.
