The University of Georgia dedicated the $54.1 million Poultry Science Building in Athens in October of 2023. Designed by Flad Architects, the 70,000-sf structure provides leading-edge facilities for programs in avian biology, genetics, nutrition, and product safety. The transformative development provides the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences with state-of-the-art classrooms, teaching labs, BSL-2 research labs, demonstration areas, conference rooms, and offices for faculty and staff.

Delivered as a public-private partnership, this nexus of agricultural innovation also creates new opportunities for collaboration with private industry. McCarthy Building Companies was the general contractor for the project, which has attained sustainable design certification through the Georgia Peach Green Building Rating System. Ground was broken on the facility in November of 2021.
