Georgia Tech, Engineered Biosystems Building

Location Atlanta, Georgia
Project Scope
218,880 GSF
Georgia Institute of Technology

Georgia Tech’s Engineered Biosystems Building provides 218,880 square feet of flexible interdisciplinary laboratory space for researchers collaborating in the fields of Chemical Biology, Cell Therapies and Systems Biology. The project creates a unique environment that connects people from multiple disciplines and departments to focus on specific societal problems in a holistic manner. A principal goal of the design was to foster interaction between chemists, engineers, biologists and computational scientists from two separate Colleges, the College of Engineering and the College of Science.

The building was developed with a highly utilized equipment corridor securely linking vertical circulation to every laboratory and support space while allowing wide transparency into research labs. A specialized research facility is located in the building’s basement, allowing for more transparent and publicly accessible spaces to occupy the ground level. Core facility access and expansion are critical to the success of interdisciplinary bioengineering facilities and have been carefully accounted.

Cooper Carry is the architect of record for this project and provided full design services. Lake|Flato Architects joined our team as the design architect. The project is LEED Platinum certified.
