When Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. outgrew their facilities, the group chose to purchase a 1.6 acre site only a few blocks from their existing office. They wanted to construct a commercial building to not only occupy but to also house other medical professionals. By building on this land, they took part in the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood. Since its construction, there have been several other medical facilities built in the area.
White Street Professional Building is located in Marietta, Georgia, less than two miles from the heart of downtown Marietta and only one block from Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. The city of Marietta is 15 miles northwest of Atlanta and just south of the North Georgia Mountains. This area has experienced tremendous growth in population and economic development in recent years as a suburb of Metro Atlanta. With such growth comes a need for more healthcare facilities. White Street Professional was constructed to provide a location for medical professionals to practice that is convenient to metropolitan Atlanta and north Georgia from Interstate 75, US Highway 41, and several other state routes.
Comprised of a structural steel frame with cast-in-place concrete floors, this building has approximately 24,000 square feet of usable space. The exterior envelope is comprised of a modular brick veneer with multiple cast stone bands and an ArcuStone cornice. There is a membrane roof system and the interior walls are framed with metal studs and finished with gypsum board.
The practice of Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. occupies the first floor of White Street Professional and the second and third floors are available office space. The upper floors were designed with reinforced concrete, keeping other medical tenants' equipment needs in mind. A brick porte-cochere, positioned on the northeast corner of the building, provides easy access for patients to be dropped off and picked up. Behind the two elevators located in the lobby, there is a vending and mail area for added convenience.
The architectural firm, Pate Design Group, assisted the owners in the design of the project and helped carry it out through construction. Schoppman Company, Inc., a contracting firm based out of Marietta, Georgia, was the successful bidder out of four potential proposals.
The addition of this medical professional building to the city of Marietta offers the community potential for economic growth as well as a new healthcare facility location.
