Broderick Featured in SCUP's Planning for Higher Education Journal for "Another Day Older, Another Day Better"
Matthew Broderick, President, is featured in the July-September 2019 issue of Planning for Higher Education Journal by The Society for College and University Planning (SCUP). The article, “Another Day Older, Another Day Better,” looks at how institutions are infusing new life into mid-century campus buildings.
Replace, restore, or renovate?
In the article, Broderick along with engineers and campus administrators offer insights on updating mid-century buildings. Averaging a half-century old, these once-innovative structures are showing signs of age. Broderick gives guidance on transforming them into buildings that make positive contributions to the 21st-century campus. Topics covered include how to assess a building’s potential for renovation, options for energy-efficient HVAC systems, choosing materials that enhance the building’s performance and reduce operating costs, updating 50-year-old floor plans to support today’s pedagogy, and funding models and sources for projects.
