Georgia Institute of Technology’s remarkable Techway project showcases the intersection of cutting-edge research, innovation, and state-of-the-art workspace design.

The heart of this transformation revolves around Dr. Lukas Graber’s high-voltage research lab, where groundbreaking experiments are planned. Grounded cages promote a safe environment for testing sensitive high-voltage equipment. Flexible work benches, ceiling mounted cord reels and demountable cage partitions support the evolving needs of the research. In addition, dedicated graduate office workspaces support collaboration.

The graduate office area is designed with efficiency and productivity in mind – equipped with open workstations, huddle rooms, and an open concept break room. This setup encourages connection and knowledge sharing among students, creating a dynamic and innovative environment. Two open office areas connected by a central location foster cross communication amongst students assigned to various research projects.

Before the renovation, the existing floor plan was defined by a maze of concrete masonry walls, offering limited access to natural daylight and collaborative areas. By reconfiguring the layout and installing new windows, natural light now inspires more warmth, energy, and openness.

The impact of the Techway project extends beyond the physical space as a symbol of Georgia Tech’s commitment to provide an environment for scientific exploration and innovation.

The project serves as an example of how thoughtful interior design and renovation profoundly impacts the scientific community, providing researchers and students with the ideal space from which to push the boundaries of knowledge and explore new frontiers.
