Case Study

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta – Center for Advanced Pediatrics Taking the Lead to Finish On-Time and Under Budget

Brookhaven, Georgia, USA

The Challenge

HKS was brought on board and asked to fast-track this project after another architect struggled with the client’s budget.

The Design Solution

Through ingenuity and a solid understanding of building systems, HKS designed a functional building that maximizes efficiency and has better use of materials to lower costs without sacrificing aesthetics. The nine-story Center for Advanced Pediatrics consolidates complex care specialists, state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge research for outpatient pediatric care under one roof for the first time in Georgia.

The new facility contains the Sibley Heart Center as well as areas for physician exams, rehabilitation, research, family respite and pediatric specialists in several fields.

The Design Impact

HKS designed an alternate facility that costs $15,000,000 less than the prior firm’s projections.
