Brasfield & Gorrie recently joined the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and Emory Healthcare for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Emory Sports Medicine Complex, located at 1968 Hawks Lane in Brookhaven, Georgia.
Construction teams broke ground on the facility in June 2016. The 90,000-square-foot complex is the first of its kind, integrating four state-of-the-art facilities on its five-acre campus:
- Emory Healthcare Courts – Emory Healthcare Courts serves as the official practice and training facility for the Atlanta Hawks. With an emphasis on player development, peak performance and comprehensive player care, it features two full-length basketball courts with direct access to expanded athletic performance training areas, a film room and a fully dedicated recovery area including cryotherapy, sensory deprivation tanks and in-ground hydrotherapy. The Hawks Basketball Operations Team is housed in the facility full time.
- Emory Sports Medicine Center and Emory Physical Therapy – Emory’s entire sports-medicine division operates within this facility, giving the Hawks immediate access to Emory’s world-class physicians. The most advanced technology in preventive and rehabilitative treatment and sports performance training including the 3 Tesla MRI scanner, diagnostic imaging technology, recovery technology, 3-D motion capture analysis and blood/sweat testing and analysis are all onsite.
- Peak Performance Project – Commonly referred to as P3, Peak Performance Project is a leader in applied sports science based in Santa Barbara, California. The Atlanta branch is P3’s first location outside of Santa Barbara and serves as its East Coast headquarters. P3 services elite-level athletes from around the world, integrating sports science to assess athlete movement and performance and prescribe individualized optimization plans.
The privately funded complex was designed by HOK. H.J. Russell & Company, in association with Legends Project Development, served as the project management team for the project and Brasfield & Gorrie was selected to serve as construction manager.
