Ashley McGraw was featured on University Business for raising the question to remodel, restore, or raze when evaluating midcentury campus buildings. President Matthew Broderick takes on this critical decision facing school administrators and facility planners in the article.

According to a recent report by Sightlines, a specialist in higher-ed facilities intelligence, almost 40 percent of university structures currently in use were constructed between 1960 and 1975. As these midcentury buildings enter their fifth decade of service, school administrators and facility planners are facing a critical decision about what to do with them.

The article also highlights our Deep Energy Retrofit and renovation of Binghamton University’s Science IV. Our challenge was to transform an energy-intensive, visually mundane, 77,000-square-foot 1973 classroom building into an efficient, integrated, and welcoming element of the college campus.
