Savannah, Georgia – Hussey Gay Bell provided full-service architectural and engineering design services for this project which consisted of the overall renovation of the 60,000-square-foot William and Iffath Hoskins Center for Biomedical Research as well as construction of a 30,000-square-foot addition to the Hoskins Center to serve as a medical education and research facility for the University. Scope of work included the renovation and addition of classroom space on the first floor into a medical library, multipurpose room and administration suite; expansion of the existing research lab on the second floor to include tissue culture, cell sorting and microscopy labs as well as a post-doctorate suite; and a 30,000 SF addition to the southwest including mock exam/simulation rooms on the first floor and student tutorial rooms on the second floor. Led by Rives E. Worrell Company, a JE Dunn Construction Company, the project is anticipated to reach 100% completion in early 2016. Construction activities were phased and coordinated with building users to minimize disruption impact during construction.
