Inherently sustainable and incredibly long-lasting, even a timeless material like brick continues to lay the foundation for the future: North Georgia Brick is honored to support the expansion and improvement of UGA’s Poultry Science Building from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences with our dedication to quality craftsmanship. Simply put, this 70,000+ square foot, state-of-the-art facility upholds the University of Georgia as the global epicenter of poultry science!
This new development has been long overdue, as the capacity of the previous facility built in 1959 lost effectiveness in allowing for the innovative research needed to solve current problems or discover new possibilities. From research in genetics to embryology, nutrition to agribusiness, this new Poultry Science home helps better equip both faculty and students, the Georgia communities supported by the program, and the nation’s poultry industry for the challenges and opportunities of the future.
In addition to providing a supremely durable and energy-efficient material, North Georgia Brick products help commercial buildings achieve points towards LEED certification and other green building rating systems. This valuable characteristic mirrors the school’s mission to ensure the long-term sustainability of poultry as a food source.
As brilliant professors are drawn to pursue their work at UGA and trailblazing students work together to achieve research breakthroughs that create new businesses, generate new jobs, and make people healthier, the new home helps better recruit and develop the next crop of great poultry leaders.
