“Stretching Economic Resources: Finding Synergies and Opportunities Through Adaptive Reuse”

Principal Chris Ladds reviewed the challenges and solutions for Brown's  J. Walter Wilson at the 2010 SCUP North Atlantic Regional Conference on March 25th. Michael McCormick of Brown University and Ron Simoneau of Shawmut Design and Construction were also at hand to share their point of view to provide a comprehensive look at the project. Ladds discussed the opportunities for a collaborative design process that included the client, contractor, and end users. Through the adaptive reuse of a cumbersome and neglected campus building, Lerner Ladds + Bartels found an appropriate design solution that vastly improved the building and the campus surroundings.
