While SmithGroup established its first office in Atlanta in 2022, our roots in Georgia and the greater southeast region date back many decades. In 1980, the firm designed an expansion of the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, dubbed the world’s busiest airport. Since then, our planners and designers have continued to serve major health systems and colleges and universities in the region. Today our Atlanta office is home to specialists in Higher Education and Healthcare strategy, planning and design.
Recent work in the region includes a new downtown law school for Georgia State University, an expansion of Emory University Hospital, a new patient tower at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center, and a dynamic new engineering building on the Georgia Southern University campus.
