UMass Amherst Selects Leers Weinzapfel Associates to Design New Integrated Design Building

Leers Weinzapfel Associates has been selected to program and design a new 80,000 GSF facility for the departments of Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning, Architecture + Design, and Building Construction Technology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The project will exemplify the University’s commitment to sustainability and innovative design, and the value of integrating the architecture, landscape architecture, regional planning, and green building design programs into one facility. LEED Silver Certification is targeted. Building occupancy is slated for Summer 2016.

“We’re excited about collaborating with LWA on this project. Their deep experience will help us create a ground breaking model for integrated education and research regarding the built environment”
