Summerhill Apartments 

New South-Synergy started construction on Carter & Associates' Summerhill Apartments in late 2019. The new, 312,426-square-foot, 306-unit multifamily development is located on the old 83-acre Turner Field site. The multifamily community, which will include 8,575 square feet of ground-level retail space, is part of Phase I of the private development team's plan to overhaul 35-acres into the up-and-coming Summerhill neighborhood, which will include corporate offices, traditional multifamily units, student housing and retail. The ground-level retail space will line Hank Aaron Drive and will feature a mix of restaurants and service providers. 

The five-story development will include a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments as well as six live-work units. Of the one- and two-bedroom units available, 31 will be set aside for those earning 80 percent of the area's median income. Community amenities will include a resort-style pool, multiple seating areas, grilling stations, a fire pit, dog park and pet grooming station. Additionally, the community will feature a two-story club room  with a fireplace, kitchen and meeting space as well as a fitness center with yoga and spin rooms, weight machines, and cardio equipment. 

Construction is slated for completion in late 2021.

Central Passenger Terminal Complex,

Landside Modernization at HJAIA

New South and Synergy were part of the Joint Venture team, NSMS, who completed the Central Passenger Terminal Complex's Landside Modernization (LMOD) at HJAIA. The purpose of this project was to renovate, upgrade, and modernize the exterior and interior of the public-facing domestic facilities.

 

The LMOD project involved updating the domestic terminals by constructing two massive structural steel canopies and completely transforming the building’s facades. The canopies, which span the north and south terminal roadways, measure 864’ long x 200’ wide and are covered by inflatable ETFE fabric pillows. Each HSS structure, ranging from 14”-20” diameter, consists of 19 “supertrusses” which are connected by a total of 198 x-shaped diagrid members. The structures are covered by semi-transparent ETFE pillows that are constantly inflated by blowers on the roof of the terminal. In addition to the new canopies, construction of the new facades included the complete demolition of the existing entryways and the construction of a new curtain wall, sliding doors, and metal paneled “mini-canopies” at each entrance. Additionally, the full exterior façade of the terminal was re-skinned with metal panels, new storefront clerestories, and glass panels.

South Security Checkpoint Expansion at HJAIA

The most utilized security screening checkpoint at the world's most traveled airport was recently expanded by New South-Synergy, A Joint Venture. 

In addition to increasing the number of security lanes available, the project installed eight new CT scanners which are a first for airport security screening. This new technology is still in its trial phase and with that cam numerous construction challenges for the project team. In addition to working in an active airport, the project team had to contract, coordinate, and install technology that is still in development and never before used at an airport facility. 

Evolving equipment and project requirements, local and federal agency approvals, international travel restrictions during the height of COVID-19, TSA authorizations, unforeseen conditions, and more had to be overcome to deliver this project ahead of schedule and under budget. All of which occurred while maintaining the passenger experience and without impact to operations or security screening. 

A380, Gate F3 Reconfiguration at HJAIA

This reconfiguration allows for an A380 aircraft (Group 6) to be accommodated on the new Concourse F. At the time of construction, no gate on Concourse F could accommodate the A380, and it was the desire of the Department of Aviation (DOA) to have the ability to have a Group 6 aircraft gated on Concourse F. Gate F3 was chosen as the best location; however, both the terminal and air-side areas required improvements. The air-side improvements to Gate F3 included an addition of a second loading bridge and relocation of the aircraft lead-in line.

Concourse improvements included a new vertical transportation core and tie-in to the CBP sterile corridor, additional millwork for the new bridge, and extension of the concourse level sterile corridor to tie-in to the new vertical transportation core. The vertical transportation core included a stairway, elevator, and an escalator.

Palmetto Library 

The 13,000-square-foot branch library for Fulton County was constructed with a steel frame on concrete foundations. The exterior walls received cement-fiber composite board siding, and the roof was constructed with metal roof panels and TPO. The majority of the library interior work was architectural casework and millwork due to the excess amount of shelving, cabinets, openings, and seating. More than half of the total square footage of the flooring is access panel flooring with underfloor HVAC and electrical distribution.

This project is LEED Silver certified.
