Emory Executive Park Musculoskeletal Center

About this project

The Emory Musculoskeletal Institute provides innovative, comprehensive, patient and family centered care. The facility supports orthopaedics and spine ambulatory care, physical therapy, imaging, a 30,170 square foot ambulatory surgery center, and clinical research support and features clinical, research, and education spaces. The complex includes a 675 space parking deck with electric vehicle charging stations. This project is pursuing LEED Silver certification.

The lighting design includes interior and exterior lighting for an extended section of the building. This section, containing glass with diagonal beams, is illuminated differently than the rest of the exterior. The more lively color changing linear LEDs have a narrow optic to ensure that no light is wasted.
