Renovating Tech Tower

Sprucing Up Tech's Most Iconic Building
After being closed for renovation for more than a year, Georgia Tech’s most recognizable landmark reopened this summer with changes inside and out, and from the garden level to the fourth floor.
The Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Administration Building, better known as Tech Tower, underwent a redesign of some of the office space; a major upgrade of its plumbing, electrical, and heating and cooling systems; and the addition of a second interior fire exit stairwell and a new elevator. Some unforeseen conditions related to work covered up during previous building renovations were also repaired and brought up to code.
