Dekalb Academy of Technology and Environment Gym, Cafeteria and Classroom Addition DATE moved into three different leased facilities during the school’s brief three year history. Sizemore Group showed them that it was possible to purchase their existing building, to increase the number of K-8 home room classrooms, and to add science labs, a cafeteria, and a gymnasium at a carrying cost which they could afford. Initial sketches showed the Board and the Parents that it was possible to achieve their dreams. The time line was also incredibly compact because of the financing time line, and the need to purchase the building before their option ran out. Sizemore Group put together a Design-Build team who worked together under the compact time frame to allow the interior renovations to be completed during the summer months, and the support spaces in the addition to be complete soon after. The addition is a low energy, low maintenance, fully daylighted building.

Emory University Goizueta Business School Expansion and Addition

Emory University Goizueta Business School Expansion and Addition

Emory University Goizueta Business School Expansion and Addition Emory University needed an addition for the existing business school. Sizemore Group was able to quickly ascertain the needs of the Program and provide architectural direction. The Program was verified with a review and comparison of ‘peer’ institutions. This project has been awarded LEED Gold Certification. Designed under Emory’s core design goal of “enlightened frugality”, sustainable design concepts were only adopted where they offered a sustainable return on investment. This 90,000 gsf expansion includes office functions inherent to the Business School as well as new classrooms and offices for the Executive Education Program. Sizemore Group is the Architect of Record for this project and KMW is the Associate Architect. “The Business School expansion project and the associated site design anchored the monumental sea change for this quadrant of campus, an area that had long been considered the “outback.”  Not only did it provide a new campus green and gathering place defined by building edges open and porous, it was also inviting and accessible to the surrounding communities of people. The rhythm and scale of the facades helped to create an identity of place different from others on campus, but wholly within the Emory idiom.  The gateway under the connective bridge provided a strong sense of transition and iconic identity. “The Sizemore Group helped us establish the strength of design risk that would be so rewarding for the Emory community: large glass windows in circulation areas, the bridge as both connector and lounge, and the play of shade and shadow patterns with loggia, balcony and flat façade combinations.”  – Jen Fabrick, Emory...

Hapeville Charter Career Academy High School Building

Hapeville Charter Career Academy High School Building

Hapeville Charter Career Academy High School Building This facility is the first non-profit owned Charter Career Academy in Georgia. It was designed as a LEED building to be built in eight months, from “we need a building but we don’t have a site”, to move-in with all the furniture and technology needed for a future oriented course of study. The Ninth Grade Academy (15,000 sf) was the first element of Hapeville Charter Career Academy’s High School. It was also one of the first five charter academy’s to receive a grant for construction from the State of Georgia. The Ninth Grade Academy was converted into an Eighth Grade Academy as part of a second phase of construction including a larger, 55,000 s.f. high school building. Five areas of professional certifications are provided in conjunction with Atlanta Technical College including Avionics Technician, Paralegal, Patient Care Assisting, Dental Assisting and Front-end Alignment / Brakes / Steering Systems. “When we first began with Sizemore, we hadn’t even selected a location yet. But in less than one year, we were already settled into an innovative and award-winning building, thanks to their talented team. “They patiently guided us through the entire process. We had numerous stakeholders with very different perspectives and priorities involved, including instructors, department heads, representatives from our dual-enrollment partner schools, and even county and state officials. And our Sizemore team very effectively brought together and listened to all stakeholders to ensure that the building would meet – and exceed – all needs. “I came to this project with no knowledge of architecture and didn’t know what to expect, and they made the...
