The state of Tennessee is moving forward with building a new regional forensic center for Shelby County.

The state has filed initial building permits to construct a $10.2 million building at 637 Poplar Ave.

The design was submitted Sept. 29 to Shelby County Code Enforcement for their review which, once approved, would clear the way for construction to begin later this year.

The two-story, 30,536-square-foot building will sit on 2.5 acres.

The state-funded facility will be used to provide autopsy services for the region, but also has office space.

Forensic Medical, a Nashville-based private company with a Memphis office, will run the facility for the region.

Steve Berger and Brett Ragsdale with TRO Jung|Brannen are the project architects. Allen & Hoshall is the project engineer and Inman/EMJ is the general contractor.
