J. B. Speed School Master Plan

Louisville, KY

LAS was hired to develop a master plan for the growth and improvement of one of the University of Louisville’s strongest programs, the J.B. Speed School of Engineering.

The School has seen dramatic recent growth and desired a plan to creatively reuse existing historic buildings, plan for new state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities and stitch it all together with a landscaped quad.

The process involved all senior leadership at the School in assessing existing conditions, benchmarking available space, evaluating options and choosing a desired plan and phasing for the campus precinct. Work included a focus on reclaiming existing parking lots to create a signature campus open space and linking to the emerging Research District.
