ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Technical College broke ground on phase two of its Carlton Construction Academy.

Once the $4.9 million project is completed, the school will have space to add more areas of study to its already existing curriculum. Some of them include green building technology and renewable sustainable energy.

Albany Technical College President Dr. Anthony Parker said this will bring most of the construction courses together.

"Most of our construction programs located together. And they'll function the way that they function on a job site. Working together, completing projects," said Dr. Parker.

The project will add more than 28,000 square feet of usable space to the college.
