Construction continues on 9-story Piedmont Newnan Hospital

Construction on the tallest building in southwest metro Atlanta is well underway. And sometime in early 2012 the doors will open for the nine-story, 362,000 square-foot Piedmont Newnan Hospital on Poplar Road near I-85.

Though initially delayed due to the effects of the recession, work on the replacement hospital began in earnest in February. Ongoing work at the 105-acre Poplar Road site includes three levels of structural steel framework, installation of underground infrastructure components, pouring structural retaining walls, installation of utility systems and curbs and gutters, pouring the foundation for the first floor and the continuation of grading work.

The hospital is located on the east side of I-85 and on the south side of Poplar Road within the Poplar Road Quality Development Corridor Overlay District. The hospital property includes more than 2,500 feet of frontage along Poplar Road.

Hospital construction will come in two phases. The first phase will include the first of two nine-story hospital buildings, each at 362,000 square feet, and one of the two 125,000 square-foot medical office buildings. The second phase, with full build-out anticipated in 2020, will include the completion of the second nine-story section of the hospital that will join the first phase and completion of the second medical office building. Plans call for a total of approximately 2,250 surface and deck parking spaces.

Piedmont Newnan’s first phase will include 136 beds, with 14 post-partum beds, 18 critical care beds and 104 general medical/surgical patient beds. The facility also will feature eight operating rooms and 23 patient rooms in the Emergency Department and 1,000 parking spaces (300 for patients and visitors and 700 for staff).

Once fully completed in 2020, the hospital complex will include a nine-story, 800,000 square-foot hospital with two bed towers, two medical office buildings at 125,000 square feet each, two parking decks at 245,000 square feet and 166,250 square feet and a central energy plant at 30,000 square feet.

The hospital is utilizing sustainable building strategies such as energy efficiencies and water reuse and conservation technologies in an effort to reduce future operating costs, provide a healthier work environment, and reduce the overall environmental impact of the project, according to hospital reports. It has been designed to comply with the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System.
