Drums, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/23/2014 -- The Soka Gakkai International Atlanta Buddhist Cultural Center recently opened their new permanent home and “Embassy of the South” in Atlantic Station. The new building, designed by Collins Cooper Carusi Architects, features first floor exhibit space, a main hall on the second floor with seating for 235, five additional meeting rooms and a bookstore.
Eberly & Associates provided civil engineering services for the design and construction of the new two-story, 13,800 square foot building on an approximately 1-acre tract along 17Th Street. The site is within a Brownfield capped location where there are limits on the depth of soils that can be disturbed. A major challenge was to limit site grading activities, plus design underground utilities that would not penetrate below the Brownfield cap, and to get these systems approved through the City of Atlanta under their newly adopted “green infrastructure” storm water management ordinance.
