Georgia Tech Research Institute Completes $42M Expansion in Marietta
MARIETTA, GA. — Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has completed a $42 million expansion that includes two buildings spanning 350,000 square feet in Marietta. The facilities are part of GTRI’s South Cobb Campus. In 20167, GTRI acquired four buildings on an unused, 52-acre Lockheed Martin site next to Dobbins Air Reserve Base. Renovations included transforming 205,500 square feet of retired office space into a research facility featuring computing and electronics laboratories. It also included the 144,500-square-foot renovation of a 403,500-square-foot high-bay industrial warehouse, which GTRI will also use for research. This space incorporates two, 10-ton cranes and a 30-ton crane to handle heavy equipment. The design team included McCarthy Building Cos. and Flad Architects. JLL’s project and development services division managed the design and construction phases.
