EYP Insights: Sustainable, Future-Focused Learning Environments Powered by Modernization

Virtual, 1-2 PM EST

March 31, 2021


Modernization, the creative reuse of existing buildings, takes demolition out of the question. Instead, we leverage an integrated team of architects and engineers to develop optimal designs for reusing existing facilities without compromising critical programmatic, energy performance, or sustainability objectives.  

Hear success stories from Carleton College and the University of Pennsylvania, and leave the conversation with a better understanding of how your institution can reimagine your current building stock on campus to create a sustainable, future-focused teaching and learning environment. 


  1. Evaluate how a building may best be evaluated for future or existing energy performance.
  2. Identify potential options for improving building performance in balance with preservation criteria.
  3. Advocate for reuse of an existing building as opposed to new construction.
  4. Develop project strategies for adaptive reuse in response to operational cost driven project requirements.
