Turner Construction Company Completes Work on Two Projects for University of Georgia

August 03, 2022

New housing will provide welcome amenities to first-year students and a new research building supports education in the STEM disciplines.


Turner Construction Company is happy to announce that it has completed work on the Black-Diallo-Miller Residence Hall and the I-STEM Research Building for the University of Georgia.

The $41.4 million Black-Diallo-Miller Residence Hall is a six-story 120,000 square foot facility that will provide housing for 525 first-year students in double-occupancy rooms beginning in fall 2022. Residents will enjoy large windows, built-in closets, and extensive shared lounge and study areas. The building is named in honor of Harold A. Black, Mary Blackwell Diallo and Kerry Rushin Miller, the first African American students to enroll as freshmen and complete their undergraduate degrees.

The $52 million Interdisciplinary STEM Research Building, Phase II, is a three-story 100,000 square foot facility built on top of an existing 320 space parking deck. The building provides space for 27 principal investigators, laboratory space for chemistry, biology, and engineering, as well as interdisciplinary research space and classrooms. Together with Phase I, the building optimizes collaborative interactions and innovations in chemistry, engineering, and related STEM disciplines for students and researchers. 

“We are happy to have delivered these two projects for the University of Georgia on schedule and budget,” said Kevin Jenkins, Vice President and General Manager, Turner Construction Company.
