Emory Brain Health Center Veterans Program

As a subsequent project to the work delivered for the Emory Brain Health Center, Leapley also built the dedicated Veterans Program space, which is one of only four academic medical centers in the U.S. supported by the Wounded Warrior Project’s Warrior Care Network. Here, physicians in the brain health suite provide treatment and therapy to wounded veterans and veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injuries at no cost. Leapley built patient rooms, a classroom, conference room, reception area, break rooms and entrance for this collaborative care facility. The space features custom millwork and circadian rhythm lighting. The Veterans Program space enables Emory to reach and positively impact the lives of twice as many post-9/11 veterans to treat their invisible wounds of service.

Alan is a hands-on leader, a focused and decisive builder, and an advocate for sustainability. Since 2012, he has served on the board of directors for the Lifecycle Building Center to promote the reuse of construction materials and reduce construction waste in landfills.
