At 11:30am EST on Wednesday, July 14, RAMSA Partner Kevin M. Smith will present "Every Campus Has One: Redeeming the Intractable Modernist Building" at the Society for College and University Planning's Annual Conference, held virtually from July 12-16. Presenting with him will be Arthi Kasetty, Director, Office of Facilities Management, Harvard University; and Justin Butwell, Director of Physical Plant, Marist College.
Renovation —as opposed to new construction —leverages existing assets, which is inherently more sustainable and cost-efficient, and allows facilities to remain in their established central campus locations. Virtually every campus has at least one building that seems to defy any attempt at renovation, but with some imaginative reinvention, we’ll demonstrate how you can transform your campus’s outdated facility and realize its full potential. In this session, you’ll learn from three institutions’ different but successful approaches: wrapping an existing building; inserting new construction within an existing complex; and reorienting an existing building.
