Cobb Hospital Front Entrance & Lobby

MERIT WINNER: Associated General Contractors, Georgia Branch 2012 Build Georgia Award

This particular project impacts the first impression incoming patients and visitors have to this expanding facility, and provides insight into Perkins + Will’s ability to capture a vision as drawings which a qualified and experienced contractor, such as Cork-Howard was then able to build into reality.  Cobb Hospital; its employees, patients, and visitors, now daily reap the success of this collaborative effort.


Because the lobby and front entrance is designed to route traffic throughout the hospital, the renovation of this important access point was highly critical and sensitive.  Stairwells and main egress of patients, staff, and visitors had to be rerouted so those individuals could safely get from one area of the hospital to another safely.


Due to the close proximity of this major construction to the dialysis unit, much of the potentially disturbing work was done early, prior to the outpatients’ arrival.  Likewise, the major PBX system which is operational 24/7 was located in the midst of the construction work. Diligence in keeping these critical systems up and running throughout the construction phase was paramount in the process, as this housed the hub for operating all the medical gas, generators, fire, and phone equipment for the entire hospital.


Cork-Howard is pleased with the resulting construction effort as the updated look of the front entrance and lobby reflects the ability this medical facility has to provide some of the newest medical and technical services to the area in which Cobb Hospital operates.
