Georgia Institute of Technology demonstrated aggressively forward thinking when they hired Bohlin, Cywinski, Jackson Architects to design the new Marcus Nanotechnology Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The newly designed building is the latest investment in the technology program at Georgia Tech.

Immediately upon entering the center, visitors are confronted by a bold, cutting edge, corridor design. The corridor’s main focal point is comprised of 9,000 square-feet of Rulon’s Panelized Beam ceilings and walls. The overall design resembles a set from a sci-fi movie. David Murrey, from Bohlin, Cywinski, Jackson Architects clearly succeeded in creating and emphasizing a modern, clean scientific appearance.

Starting with the Architect’s sketches and preliminary details, Rulon Company’s engineering team approached the task of transferring that vision into reality with the knowledge that they were treading in uncharted waters. A system exactly like this had never been attempted before. Extensive pre-bid input was merely a warm up to the post bid submittal process, onsite meetings and installation process.

Today, potential recruits enter the space and quickly realize that the success of their future resides within this cutting edge facility and university.

As any championship caliber organization can attest, team assembly is the most important part of any endeavor. Businesses wanting to hire the best, turn to our country’s technology centered universities. With competition at an all time high, these universities are positioning to become the trusted source of today’s brightest medical and scientific minds.

Ultimately the 3-D CAD based details, incredibly specific geometric measurements and virtuosic installation combined to make this a successful project for, Bohlin, Cywinski, Jackson Architects, Rulon Company, and Georgia Tech.
