Western Michigan University, which enlisted Lord, Aeck
& Sargent to help certify its College of Health and Human Services building under the former LEED-EB 2.0, targeted certification from the beginning.
In 2005 (while with Lord Aeck
Sargent Architects) he led a multidisciplinary team funded by the Getty Foundation's Campus Heritage Initiative to create the University System of Georgia's "Campus Historic Preservation Plan Guidelines."
& Sargent senior associate Amy Leathers' winning design included a foundation of wooden telephone poles and a spiral staircase leading to a viewing deck that overlooks a 1,700-square-foot roof garden, domed skylights, and enclosed and screened spaces for programming.
Ambling University Development Group in Valdosta, Ga., developed the project, which was designed by the Atlanta office of architecture firm Lord, Aeck
Vertical mixed-use developments, where multi-purposed tenants are under one roof instead of separated among different buildings as they are in horizontal mixed-use projects, are especially difficult to construct with the goal of minimizing tenants' impact on one another, said Eric Brock, a principal and director for the housing and mixed use studio division of Atlanta-based Lord, Aeck
& Sargent Architecture firm.
"The Southface Eco Office is the result of a collaboration among Southface, the owner; Lord, Aeck
& Sargent, the architect: Eco Office Contractors: A Green Building Consortium of five builders; and others who have donated their services and dollars, as well as off-the shelf green building products and technologies, like Sto's, that will be used in the Eco Office," said Dennis Creech, executive director of Southface, a non-profit organization that promotes sustainable homes, workplaces and communities.
The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is a partnership between The Kendeda Fund and Georgia Tech, and designed as a collaboration between Lord Aeck
Sargent and The Miller Hull Partnership.
Ambling University Development Group is managing the project and development team, which includes Benchmark Construction, and Lord, Aeck
& Sargent Architects.
But as the architectural firm Lord, Aeck
& Sargent discovered, one structure - Wilkes Hall, the former fine arts building - needed such extensive repairs that it initially seemed as if demolition was the best bet.
They teamed with architecture firm Lord Aeck
Sargent and mechanical engineer Integral Group for the project which is currently completing the programming phase, to design the 60,000 square foot complex of buildings with the mission to better understand the sustainability and health of tropical and subtropical marine ecosystems through scientific studies, student education and public awareness of the economic and cultural heritage associated with coral reef systems.
