PROJECT DESCRIPTION

LP3 architecture designed this interior build-out of the new home for one of the world’s premier Robotics and Intelligent Machines programs. Phase One of the two-phase 28,000 SF retrofit provides a state-of-the-art laboratory and research environment to facilitate greater interaction and cross-pollination among the numerous disciplines and specializations required for the creation of the next generation of robots. The space plan is driven by the desire to maximize day-lighting and to provide flexibility for on-going reorganizations common with the department’s projects. The project includes administrative and faculty offices, open work stations, conference areas, “think tank” rooms, a break room/lounge, robotics research and development laboratory. The project was designed to meet Georgia Tech’s (former)requirement for LEED Silver Certification, however certification was not pursued due to budgetary restrictions. The design team successfully achieve a “big look” for the owner’s $1.75 million construction budget.
