Exciting Expansion for WU Brown School

Construction is underway on the new George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. Quoting from Wash U’s Newsroom, “It’s going to be transformational for the Brown School.” According to Edward F. Lawlor, PhD and Dean of the Brown School and the William E. Gordon Distinguished Professor, “This building will help us connect communities by bringing our community together in one place, and will provide us with the classrooms, research space, event and gathering space, and student spaces to be the best in our field.”

This LEED Gold Building will double the footprint of the George Warren Brown School, an international leader in educating and preparing future social work and public health leaders in the areas of policy, practice, and research. “The rigor and inclusiveness of the planning process and resulting achievements,” continued Lawlor, “are unmatched among academic buildings at Washington University.”

Mackey Mitchell is proud to partner with Moore Ruble Yudell in the design of this exciting new building, and to work once again with construction managers Alberici Constructors. Mackey Mitchell’s project team includes Gene Mackey, Jim Konrad, Marcus Adrian, Dan Schneider, John Brown,  Gregory Keppel,  Stacey  Wehe, and Sara Holt.
