CODA | Expansion of Technology Square


CODA is developed by Portman Holdings in partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology. CODA is more than a building – but rather a place that will inspire and realize a sustainable, innovation ecosystem – that integrates the existing assets of Technology Square in Midtown Atlanta with new opportunities in interdisciplinary research, economic development, commercialization and sustainability. With both 620,000 square feet of high-rise office space, 40,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, multiple levels of below-grade parking and an approximately 80,000 square foot data center on-site, CODA seeks to engage corporate partners with application needs for data analytics and processing, faculty with research interests in modeling and simulation, network computer and infrastructure providers and entrepreneurs from young start-up companies.

Integral Consulting Engineering is providing Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection consulting engineering and Energy Modeling services for the project.
