ATLANTA, GA — WSP, a global engineering and professional services consultancy, will provide mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services for the new Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta replacement hospital, adjacent medical office building and central utility plant.
The projects are part of an overall master plan for the new campus, which includes the replacement hospital and an adjacent medical office building, the Center for Advanced Pediatrics, support buildings and more than 20 acres of green space. The campus will allow Children’s to meet anticipated Georgia pediatric population growth and better serve existing patients and families within a healing, natural landscape.
