Smee + Busby Architects and McCarty Holsaple McCarty, in association with Hilferty and Associates, and Hedstrom Design, has been awarded a subcontract by URS | CH2M Oak Ridge LLC (UCOR) as the Professional Site Design Team and Museum Professional for the K-25 History Center, Equipment Building, and Viewing Tower.
The K-25 building, built in 1943, was a key facility in the Manhattan Project. As the world’s largest building under one roof, K-25 covered over 2,000,000 square feet while producing the enriched uranium that helped end World War II. The facility is located at East Tennessee Technology Park, the former Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant. UCOR is cleaning up the site for the United States Department of Energy (DOE) as it is being transformed into a private sector industrial park. Demolition of the K-25 building was completed on December 19, 2013.
In 2012 the DOE signed a Memorandum of Agreement for K-25 Site preservation with a vision to complete historic preservation activities within 5 to 7 years. This project will expand the story of the Manhattan Project that is told through the Hanford Museum (exhibits designed by Hilferty and Associates in Hanford, WA) and the Bradbury Science Museum (located in Los Alamos, NM).
The museum subcontract awarded consists of a new K-25 Equipment Building and Viewing Tower to be located adjacent to the existing K-25 footprint and a History Center to be located within the adjacent existing fire station. Wayside exhibits surrounding the existing footprint will provide visitors with real life stories about the people and science of K-25.
The main concept of the project is to immerse the visitors in the story of K-25 – commemorating the international importance and history-changing impact of the Manhattan Project and K-25′s role. The project will inform visitors on why K-25 was built, how K-25 worked, and who made it possible.
Conceptual design for the project will begin in April 2014 and the completion date for the construction of the project is 2017.
After seven and a half years of restoration, local architect Brian Scott Pittman has almost completely restored the Mary Temple House. The house is three levels and includes a basement.

On January 31, Hallsdale Powell Utility District’s new facility, designed by MHM, received the Green Project Award from the East Tennessee Chapter USGBC. Completed in June 2011, the jury recognized the design in making a “really strong statement to the community about the importance of sustainable design strategies.” They “loved the [emphasis] and demonstration of stormwater management” in a water utility project. MHM’s work on the project included coordination with the Penland Studio, Ross Bryan Associates, Engineering Services Group and McGill Associates. Accepting the award on behalf of MHM was Don Horton, project architect.
The goal for OrthoTennessee & Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic’s new MRI renovation & expansion project was to design a new MRI suite as well as additional exam rooms while minimizing the footprint of a building addition. After exploring multiple locations, the best solution was to place the new rooms adjacent to the existing MRI room and to create a new entrance and waiting area. One challenge for the addition was to architecturally fit with the existing building, but also act as a clear entry for the client’s patients.
US Green Building Council’s, Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) certified the offices and staff services space in the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR) plant in Knoxville, Tenn., under LEED for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI). This certification is one of many McCarty Holsaple McCarty’s projects.
