University of Tennessee – Joint Institute for Advanced Materials

Building Area: 142,634 s.f.

Date of Completion: Fall 2016

Type: New Construction

Location: Knoxville, TN

Budget: $43,000,000

Solution: The facility is organized in
a 4-story rectilinear bar running from east to west. This orientation
enables the use of sun shading and natural lighting to be integrated.
This orientation also minimizes the building’s profile as seen from the
residential zone on the far side of the Tennessee River.

The main entry and quad access is on the first floor, opening
into a multi-level lobby space with access to the seminar room, conference
room, and second & third floors.

Office functions are located around the building perimeter while the building core is made up of laboratory and support spaces.

Joint venture with Bullock-Smith & Partners.
