Structural Features

  • This major expansion to the Piedmont Atlanta Hospital campus houses critical and acute care patient beds, laboratories, and surgery centers.
  • The signature curved geometry of the building was achieved using post-tensioned concrete framing.
  • Tower columns could not continue through the large open ground floor lobby, resulting in the need for a system of massive 10-foot deep post-tensioned transfer girders above.
  • Special measures were undertaken to accommodate the tie-in to multiple adjacent buildings.
  • The sloping site and variable subgrade conditions resulted in significant earth retention challenges and also the need for multiple foundation types.
