Located in the picturesque town of Pine Mountain, GA, Impact 360 is a gap year experience for young adults transferring from high school into college or the work force. This school was created through the Lifeshape Foundation, which was founded by Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A.
Located across the street from the existing campus, Impact 360 is expanded on 17 acres to include a 2-story academic building, a 2-story residence hall, and a 6,548-SF maintenance building. To make room for the new buildings, 177 parking spaces are added.
The two-story academic building provides multiple amenities to students including classrooms, kitchen and dining area, indoor gym with a basketball court and fitness center, study areas, sound studio, gaming and social lounge, and gathering area. Construction consists of structural steel, heavy timber, and light gauge framing. The residence hall is a wood-framed structure that includes a heavy timber entrance canopy and structural steel throughout. The residence hall is made up of 34 units to house up to 72 students and includes common area lounges and kitchens, outdoor basketball court, indoor and outdoor patios, and outdoor grill and fireplace.
