Headquarters Lab Annex and Morgue

Decatur, Georgia

Responsible for laboratory work for cases throughout the state, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations embarked on an expansion program that required two new crime labs and a subsequent Investigations Headquarters Laboratory Annex and Morgue. The laboratory annex and morgue project at the GBI State Headquarters Complex consists of two freestanding buildings, a 69,000-SF laboratory annex and a 12,000-SF morgue. Together, they double the size of the existing on-site labs. The lab annex was designed to house administrative staff of the Division of Forensic Sciences and the medical examiner’s office, as well as a first floor evidence suite. The upper two floors were designed for use as chemistry and toxicology labs. The morgue building houses all medical examiner functions and is designed for future expansion.
