RJTR is providing programming, master planning, architectural, and interior design services for the corporate campus expansion of Jackson Healthcare, a nationally recognized leader in services to the healthcare industry. The campus expansion consists of a new 8-story office building, 3-story amenity building, and 1,380-car parking structure. The design challenge presented by the client was to create a 21st Century workplace within architecture that authentically recalls the Italian Renaissance.Sited immediately south of Jackson Healthcare's current 5-story office building between Northwinds Parkway and Georgia 400, the new 20.9 acre campus is an extension of the existing property. A gated entry pavilion, an Italian-inspired piazza, multiple terraces, and other landscape features enhance the connectivity.The new 263,000 SF office building will provide space for up to 1,400 employees, with the first level featuring a grand three-story lobby, conference center, catering kitchen, and museum. A spiral staircase creates a link between the typical office floors and collaborative areas on levels 2-8. The 38,000 SF amenity building, designed to evoke the Roman Colosseum, provides a new dining facility for the campus, as well as a multi-level fitness center with an indoor swimming pool. Employees and visitors parking in the new structured parking deck are greeted with Italian streetscape facades along with trellis and tile roof-covered parking.The new amenities and master plan are designed to optimize Jackson Healthcare's vision and growth objectives while maintaining the company's employee-centric campus environment.
