Project Overview:

The Boudreaux Group has been engaged by the University of South Carolina to renovate the Health Sciences Building for use by the School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Located in the Historic Horseshoe District, the building will be completely transformed on the interior while maintaining and improving the historic exterior character. Life safety and building system improvements are of utmost importance to this renovation.

With goals of maximizing flexibility and creating dynamic learning spaces that facilitate social interaction, this renovation will focus on creating a technology infrastructure that can be adapted to the ever-changing needs of the Journalism School’s technology-intensive curriculum. Unique spaces to this building include creative newsrooms and a broadcast studio showcased through glass walls. The building itself will capture the multi-media energy of the communications industry and will welcome students, alumni, professionals and the community alike.

5/14-5/16 – AIA National Convention in Atlanta

5/27 – May Membership Meeting @ USC School of Journalism

Come join us for a presentation by the Clemson University Solar Decathlon team as they discuss their design and tell us how we can be involved!


“The Solar Decathlon is a competition hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The competition challenges 20 colleges and universities to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. The houses will be open for visitation in Irvine, California, October 8-11 and October 15-18, 2015.


Clemson University’s Solar Decathlon project brings together an active team of students and faculty from across the university to collaborate on the design, construction and promotion of a prototypical, three-bedroom, 1,000 sq. ft., low-environmental-impact, net-zero, solar house that is cost-effective in today’s market and comfortable under South Carolina’s climate. We are focused on stitching together innovative building methods, Southern personality and local products into a home for a Southern family.”
