Emory University Health Sciences engaged Jensen + Partners to complete a Master Facilities Plan for the replacement and expansion of its current inpatient, outpatient, research, and education programs. Emory undertook this project to ensure continued recognition as one of the nation’s top academic health sciences centers and to allow for future growth necessary to fulfill their strategic vision, Vision 2012. The project consisted of the following components: replacement and enhancement of The Emory Clinic’s clinical, office, and research space; replacement, relocation, and enhancement of Emory University Hospital; parking for patients, visitors, faculty and staff; and space for a future academic quadrangle.
Master Planning addressed both the Clifton Road university-centered campus and the Midtown urban hospital campus. Size, footprint, access, and connectivity to other campus buildings for the new clinic research and hospital buildings were defined. Zones were allocated for future growth, as well as mapping for parking, site circulation, and utilities infrastructure. For each site a construction budget, including costs for collateral projects, was developed. Programming involved detailed departmental volumes analysis for both sites to define a functional and space program for proposed clinic and hospital buildings.
