Project Profile

Georgia Institute of Technology - Marcus Nanotechnology Building


Project Description

This 188,000 SF facility on the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology houses clean-room laboratories that support education, research and economic development in the areas of microelectronics, medicine, pharmaceuticals, nanoscience and nanotechnology. The structure includes 30,000 gsf of clean-room floor space which supports both organic and inorganic nanotechnology research. The building also features approximately 90,000 gsf in associated support spaces, such as flexible lab space, office and conference facilities, and a central public area for circulation and social activities.

Nigel served as commissioning technical manager for the build-out of shell spaces on levels 0, 1, 3, and 4. Level zero, located underground, houses several, nanoscopy labs which have very high tolerances for sound, vibration, and electromagnetic waves. The other levels include several regular research laboratories among administrative and support spaces. The systems commissioned during the build-out were:

  • HVAC
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Building Automation System
  • Fire Protection
  • Fire Alarm
  • Laboratory
