A thirteen story incubator office building for high technology companies including 120,000 square feet of tenant space for its major tenant, Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technologies Development Center (ATDC).
This project is the recipient of the Southeast Construction magazine Award of Merit, 2003, and the 2004 Project of the Year Award from the Urban Land Institute, Atlanta District Council.
Technology Enterprise Park, Building One, is the first building in a multibuilding technology complex. This five story, highly flexible facility provides plug-and-play building systems to support office, biotechnology, and research facilities. This building is the recipient of the 2007 Development of Excellence award from the Atlanta chapter of the Urban Land Institute.
Offering support and guidance to emerging biotechnology companies commercializing technologies primarily derived from New Orleans-based universities, the New Orleans BioInnovation Center provides tenants with wet laboratories, office space, and meeting and conference spaces; and caters to a wide variety of companies, ranging from pre-startups and start-ups to maturing and expanding businesses. Laboratory spaces range from bench space for individual efforts to full laboratory suites. Each laboratory is environmentally isolated with fume hoods, emergency backup systems, administrative space, dedicated phone and data lines, and access to shared equipment. Construction documents were also provided for an 11,000 square foot FDA compliant clinical manufacturing facility, including ISO 6, 7 and 8 cleanrooms. Sustainable features include utility monitoring systems, demand controlled ventilation, variable volume laboratory airflow controls, daylighting, lighting controls, bilevel lighting, and high efficiency transformers.
Intelligent building systems deployment includes an integrated building management system normalizing data from building automation, facility metering and lighting control systems. Deployment also consists of automated analytics, fault detection, and diagnostics platform.
The New Orleans BioInnovation Center received a 2013 American Architecture Award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
NOBIC was also selected as one of the 2015 COTE Top Ten Green Projects by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and its Committee on the Environment (COTE).
The three story Dual Function Facility includes the Emory Institute for Drug Discovery and the Center for Innovative Genetics. Researchers in the facility specialize in addressing previously unmet needs regarding infectious diseases and issues relating to transplant surgeries. The facility houses animal research facilities including ABSL-3 animal holding rooms, animal treatment and housing rooms, transplant operating rooms, laboratories, interstitial space for mechanical and electrical equipment and distribution, a tissue digester and a necropsy room. The facility has a dedicated boiler and chiller plant and is designed to NIH DRM standards. The building has N+1 redundancy for air handling equipment for backup in case of an equipment failure, which also provides energy savings during normal operation.
The Genetic Medicine Building is an eight story research building for the School of Medicine, including laboratory space for genetics, clinical genetics, and pharmacology, as well as a 53,000 square foot, two floor animal facility, and a BSL-3 suite.
The Health Sciences Research Building houses laboratories, offices, and a vivarium with research focused on pediatrics. The 13,800 square foot subterranean vivarium accommodates mice, fish and rabbits. The four floors of laboratory and office space accommodate 48 primary investigators, and one floor is dedicated to drug discovery, and includes BSL-3 suites. The building also includes a 200 seat auditorium and a cafe. An occupied bridge with offices and conference rooms connects the building to the Emory Children’s Center. Sustainable features include daylight harvesting, lighting controls, energy recovery wheels, high efficiency central equipment, and solar shading.
The Roger A. and Helen B. Krone Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB) provides flexible interdisciplinary laboratory space for researchers collaborating in the fields of Chemical Biology, Cell Therapies and Systems Biology. This unique environment connects people from multiple disciplines and departments focusing on specific societal problems in a holistic manner. Interaction between chemists, engineers, biologists and computational scientists from the College of Science, College of Engineering and College of Computing is fostered in the facility. The building includes wet laboratories, classrooms, a Highland Bakery Cafe, and offices and is home to the Physiological Research Laboratory (PRL). Sustainable features include a high-performance envelope with sun shading, energy recovery wheels, radiant flooring, chilled beams, condensing hot water boilers, displacement ventilation, demand control ventilation, rainwater recovery, high-efficiency plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, and daylighting.
The Roger A. and Helen B. Krone Engineered Biosystems Building is the recipient of the 2016 AIA Georgia Design Merit Award and the 2016 ENR Southeast Award of Merit for Best Sustainable Building Practices. The project also won the 2016 South Atlantic Chapter Construction Management Project Achievement Award and 2016 Project of the Year. Additionally, the building is a 2018 Cote Top Ten Project.
The Burnett College of Biomedical Sciences is a five story research center housing research laboratories and investigator offices, specialty core support laboratories, a 22,000 square foot vivarium housing mice, rats, and rabbits, a BSL-3 laboratory, and administrative offices. Sustainable features include variable volume laboratory systems, runaround loop energy recovery systems, daylighting control systems, water saving faucets, dual flush toilets, low flow urinals, and commissioning of HVAC and plumbing systems.
