Following the completion of a master plan for the 132-acre upper school campus, Bowie Gridley Architects designed the first project, a renovation of historic Rowe Hall and the adjacent Study Center.


Sustainable strategies included:
  • Use of porous paving and innovative stormwater management system
  • Use of recycled and locally produced materials
  • Introduction of natural light to reduce energy consumption
  • Renovation of HVAC systems
  • Promotion of alternative transportation to the site.
  • Working with a locally based sustainable design consultant, BGA implemented a series of design strategies to obtain LEED Gold certification of the project
