Grady Health System has achieved the topping out milestone on the Correll Pavilion adjacent to Grady Memorial Hospital’s main campus in Atlanta, Georgia.
The new facility has been named in honor of A.D. “Pete” Correll, chairman emeritus of Georgia Pacific and former chair of both the Grady Memorial Hospital Corporation and Grady Health Foundation boards of directors, who passed away earlier this year.
When completed, the advanced surgical center will include over 550,000 square feet of clinical and parking space, including outpatient clinics, surgery, imaging and the Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence. The Correll Pavilion will dramatically expand Grady’s ability to serve patients at the main campus, offering 25% more operating room capacity and 45% additional clinic capacity.
To date, workers have recorded more than 500,000 hours on the job. In addition, the project has used:
4,000 tons of rebar (the equivalent of 571 elephants)
41,000 cubic yards of concrete (enough to fill 12 Olympic size pools)
Among the technological and environmental components to be built into the Correll Pavilion is a system to allow the harvesting and storing of rainwater from the entire block for reuse. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2022.
Grady’s Correll Pavilion project is being managed by JLL. The general contractor for the project is the joint venture between Skanska and H.J. Russell and HOK is the architect.
