Newest Rollins building earns award

The Rollins School of Public Health’s Claudia Nance Rollins building has been honored with a first place award from the Georgia Chapter of the American Concrete Institute.

Representatives from Emory, The S.L.A.M. Collaborative, KSi Structural Engineers, The Whiting Turner Contracting Company, and Ready Mix USA LLC accepted the award, which was given in the mid-rise category.

The annual competition recognizes and honors creative, innovative, aesthetic and imaginative uses of concrete and concrete masonry in new construction and concrete restoration projects.

Dedicated in October 2010, the nine-story, 190,000-square-foot Claudia Nance Rollins building is home to the departments of epidemiology, environmental health and global health.

It also houses additional teaching and meeting space, including the 250-seat Rollins Auditorium, a 125-seat case study room, and three floors of laboratory space.

In 2007, the Rollins family made a $50 million commitment toward the $90 million cost to construct the building and to renovate the existing Grace Crum Rollins building.
