Committed to Sustainability: Earth Day 2022
Since our inception in 1953, energy conservation and sustainability have been core components of our design philosophy. As we prioritize these important features in our built environments, learn about some of our top eco-friendly projects:
Emory Musculoskeletal Institute - Brookhaven, Georgia
This specialty medical office building includes a Surgery Center, office space, and a research facility with six operating rooms, four procedure rooms, pre-op/post-op, two MRIs, radiology, physical therapy, 72 exam rooms, a 15,000sf advanced research lab, teaching operative suite, administrative offices for Orthopedics, and a 10,000sf conference center. The project also included a notable dedicated physiatry room within the design.
The new LEED-certified building is a comprehensive, patient and family-centered facility and was created to serve as this service line’s central location and house multiple centers of excellence and programs. Services provided include orthopedic and spine care, physical therapy, and imaging services.
Indiana University, Assembly Hall - Bloomington, Indiana
Introba (formerly Ross & Baruzzini) designed the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems for a major renovation and addition to the iconic Assembly Hall, home to the Hoosier basketball program and other athletics. The most visible renovations focus on the main lobby entrance, which was completely replaced. The new lobby provides a grand entrance to the facility along with amenities such as a Hall of Champions display area for memorabilia. Suites were added within the arena seating along with meeting and event spaces.
Washington University - St. Louis

Ross & Baruzzini provided mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and audio-visual systems engineering services for a new four-level, 75,000sf Computer Science building on the east end of Washington University’s Danforth campus. The facility incorporates large expanses of glass on the north and west sides of the building facing an interior courtyard. The building houses several large open lab areas, tiered and flat pooled classrooms, conference rooms, offices, and collaboration zones.
MUSC Jenkins Children's Hospital and Women's Pavilion - Charleston, South Carolina

This project is the first comprehensive inpatient hospital project in South Carolina with LEED certification at any level. In addition, our firm’s recommendations as Acoustical Consultant earned two LEED points for Healthcare Acoustics, without which, this project would not have reached the point total required for overall LEED Silver Certification.
