JE Dunn Builds “Trailblazing Space” for Emory University

Emory University calls the newest building on its Atlanta campus a “trailblazing space” where 1,200 biomedical researchers will collaborate to find solutions to “the biggest human health problems of our time.”

Thinking outside the box is hard with limited space, but that is exactly what JE Dunn project teams did with Emory University’s Health Sciences Research Building II (HSRB II).

“Most of the lab buildings I’ve built over the years have been square boxes. But there is nothing typical about HSRB II,” says JE Dunn General Superintendent, Ken Cornell.

The largest construction project in the history of Emory to date, the design plans needed to fit the bill of unique yet collaborative and open. This provides scientists a space to conduct critical research in disciplines like oncology, cardiology and pediatrics.

For the JE Dunn team, HSRB II was an opportunity to demonstrate and hone its skills for similarly complex future projects. Approximately 6.7 million pounds of reinforcing steel, 1.1 million tons of Portuguese marble and 31,300 cubic yards of concrete were all used to craft the distinctive building. It features an impressive skylit atrium, multistory hanging stairway and interactive video monitors, all squeezed into an eight-story building on a 4-acre site.

If the stats aren’t impressive enough, there’s much more to learn about this project. Read more about this uniquely-designed addition to the Atlanta skyline in Bisnow.
