JE Dunn Construction will be one of the construction managers playing a key role in the development of a new campus for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The more than 70-acre campus will include a replacement hospital with an attached medical office building, support buildings and more than 20 acres of greenspace.
Children’s picked J.E. Dunn as the construction manager for its planned support building. The builder will also have a key role in the master plan development, serving as the construction manager of the MOB adjoining the new hospital, central utility plant, parking decks and site improvements for the new campus.
The eight-level, 348,000-square-foot support building will accommodate employee offices, dining, fitness center, employee health clinic and a learning center. Pedestrian and vehicular bridges will connect employees to a new parking deck.
Groundbreaking for the support building is expected this spring, with completion scheduled in the first quarter of 2020. Children’s says this timing ensures that construction on the replacement hospital will be complete by 2025.
Architects for the support building include tvsdesign for the building’s core and shell, Hendrick for interior design services and HGOR for the landscape design.
