Lynne Simmons has served AMT as an administrative assistant for 3 years and deals with clients such as Nakanishi (her favorite project due to the variety of work), Hyatt Place, and many others. Before working at AMT Lynne worked at ARMC, Louisiana-Pacific Corp. and then finally General Time in Athens in the design department assisting them in designing clocks and cholesterol monitoring devices. I interviewed Lynne and found a history-loving lady who would love to travel more. Lynne’s favorite travel spot which she has yet to visit is New Zealand. If she could be anyone from any time period she would be.
We are very excited to be a part of introducing microbrewery to downtown Albany, Georgia. Pretoria Brewery enlisted the assistance of AMT to design a 18,000 sq. ft. industrial brewery complex comprising of three buildings. The concept includes a brewery with a production warehouse, offices, a tasting area, and a multi-level courtyard. This $6 million brewery is said to be key to revitalizing downtown Albany. The company uses a farm brewery model using their own home grown ingredients and south Georgia grown products. The company has already begun crop production on the certified-organic land that Pretoria Fields owns in Dougherty.
AMT is very fortunate to have Weston Baumgartner working here! We just had to make him the first official Employee Spotlight. Although he started out his education at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Weston perfected his resume by receiving a Master of Architecture from Boston Architectural College. Obviously, he missed Georgia and came back…we are happy about that. At AMT he provides exceptional work as a Project Manager and has won awards to prove it. He received the Athens Heritage Historic Preservation Award for his design on 160 Tracy Street, a historical warehouse space turned entertaining venue. Other projects which received the Athens.
