Impact 360 is a nine month Christian worldview and leadership program located in Pine Mountain, Georgia. The program is designed for students 18-20 years old who choose to “gap year” between high school and undergraduate studies. Gap years have become increasing popular and recently garnered publicity after Malia Obama announced she would take a gap year before attending Harvard in 2017.
JLL’s Project and Development Services group is managing the project from conceptual design to delivery of the facility, ensuring that all aspects of the innovative higher education campus meet the needs and goals of the organization. Vice President Patrick Davis and Project Manager Troy Nixon lead JLL’s team. Choate Construction Company is the general contractor and Credo Design Architects is the Architect-of-Record.
“The Impact 360 Institute involves an amazing program designed to prepare students for life and we’re proud to contribute our expertise in ensuring that the built environment sets the program up for success,” said JLL’s Davis.
Consisting of a 23-acre development on 66 acres, the overall project includes a 36,000 square foot academic / multi-purpose building, two 21,000 square foot residence halls, a 3,500 square foot facilities & maintenance building, parking for 150 spaces, recreational fields and two faculty cottages.
“This topping out is an exciting step in expanding our beautiful campus to increase our capacity to influence young adults with the Impact 360 Gap Year Experience,” said Phil Alsup, Executive Director at Impact 360.
Impact 360 Institute’s Gap Year Experience was created in 2006 and offers students college level academic experience, with emphasis in biblical worldview studies, leadership training, and discernment of God’s call. Students are awarded 18-hours of university credit through Union University (Jackson, TN) for successfully completing all requirements. The intense academic experience includes an international mission trip abroad. Impact 360 is resourced by Lifeshape, Inc., a Christian organization founded by the Cathy Family in 2003.
Impact 360 will host a topping out celebration on November 11 to signify the last beam being placed, an important construction milestone toward the building’s expected completion in June 2017.
