Preserving Higher Ed Campuses

Smart preservation embraces adaptive reuse and modernization, thereby combining historic restoration, achieving sustainability goals, and reimagining spaces conducive to collaboration and innovation. The conservation of the built environment with its wealth of architectural art equally preserves the legacy of social and scientific advancements, ideas, and movements born at those historic sites.

Higher education has a long history in the U.S.—over 1,000 academic institutions are over a century old. The earliest date back to Colonial America and include many of the Ivy League schools as well as prominent East Coast state universities. These institutions are stewards of over 2,500 campus buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, remarkable public sculptures, and noteworthy fine art collections.

All of us are struck by the results of the renovation and beautification of our campus and by the level of craftsmanship reflected in your work. The physical surroundings now match the quality of education we provide.”
Arthur Levine, President Columbia University Teachers College
