Gulf Coast State College – Advanced Tech Center


Serving the community since 1957, Gulf Coast State College was the first public two-year institution to open after the 1957 Florida Legislature established a statewide network of community colleges.  Located in Panama City on Florida’s Emerald Coast, Gulf Coast is one of 28 public colleges in the state, all located within commuting distance of 96 percent of the population.


The Advanced Technology Center contains state of the art technologies in which Tecta America was involved with several aspects to include renewable energy and sustainable features. The vegetated roof (approx. 6,000 sq. ft.) provides benefits in energy savings, stormwater offset, and heat island effect reduction promotes local ecology and enhances the life of the campus. The purpose of the functional rooftop layout is to make the roof components interactive and approachable and to encourage interaction, social engagement, and collaborations at various levels. Utilizing the rooftop as usable space enhances and maximizes the building’s function and overall value to the community.[stm_project_details style=”style_2″ title=”PROJECT DETAILS” css=”.vc_custom_1428651906989{margin-bottom: 41px !important;}”][stm_project_details_item label=”Operating Unit:” value=”Tecta America Southeast – Sanford”][stm_project_details_item label=”Client:” value=”GAC/H.J.
