Designs to foster belonging & a regenerative future

Equity & Engagement

Through a process informed by listening first, our team will help you plan and design a campus where students, faculty, and staff all share a sense of belonging. We prioritize equity and universal access early and are committed to a people-centered design process. By employing consensus-based decision-making and challenging the status quo, we engage diverse groups of student users and other stakeholders, involving those most impacted by the design decisions.

Carbon Reduction

We support institutions in creating carbon-positive campuses. Hennebery Eddy designs academic environments that not only use less energy and water but also consider embodied and operational carbon impacts. We use healthy materials and systems with low embodied carbon, that are locally and regionally sourced and offer transparency on ingredients and the manufacturing process. The result is healthy and efficient net-positive solutions for campuses and communities.

“In the capital funding process, legislators are recognizing the importance of maintenance and preservation, restoration, updating, and safety. This is a magnificent example of taking care of what you have, and in this one, designing to support – and even propel — the best into the future.”

— Oregon State Rep. Nancy Nathanson of Eugene on UO Chapman Hall Rehabilitation

Transformational Renovations

We love the challenge of transforming historic and existing buildings into vibrant and welcoming components of campus. Our approach is to leverage the “good bones” of a building — maintaining the defining architectural features while seamlessly integrating new programs, spaces, and systems. Hennebery Eddy has developed a specialized savvy in identifying and enhancing the inherent strengths of under-valued structures by making strategic design moves that breathe new life into outmoded spaces.
