Turner Wins Design-Build Contracts for CDC, Cobb Co.
The Atlanta office of Turner Construction Co. was selected to build two major projects totaling approximately $150 million. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hired Turner to provide design/build services for a $93-million, 311,000-sq-ft office complex. The project, referred to as “Building 24,” is adjacent to the CDC’s headquarters in Atlanta.
Building 24 is targeted to achieve a LEED Gold certification from the USGBC. The contractor previously handled the construction of CDC’s Building 23.
Also, Cobb County awarded Turner a $57-million design-build contract for its Superior Court Building in Marietta. Completion is scheduled for December 2010.
The 230,000-sq-ft, six-story facility will include judges’ chambers and suites, courtrooms, administrative space, district attorney’s offices, a clock tower and bridge connecting the new facility to an adjacent building.
