Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) provides support to all Cities throughout the State of Georgia, through legislative advocacy and provision of services. To allow them to better serve their clients, GMA decided expand to their headquarters and adding a parking deck for staff, members, and visitors. The new office building includes a subdividable multipurpose room that can serve as a board room for the GMA Board of Directors meetings, enhanced breakroom space, offices, additional meeting and huddle spaces, and a rooftop terrace. The renovation of the existing headquarters building provides a modernized work environment through additional lighting for increased employee well-being, a fitness center for employee health, and revision of the building’s layout to be more conducive to staff collaboration. A courtyard between the existing and new building allows staff enjoy breaks outdoors and to hold events.
The new parking deck provides additional security for staff, covered parking, as well as direct entry into multiple floors of the new office building. GMA commissioned local Georgia artists to design two murals on each side of the parking deck that provide a visual portrayal of GMA’s support for Georgia’s Cities.
