Mission: Sustainable Reuse of Existing Facility Infrastructure
In the beginning
Morrison & Associates began as a
general architectural firm in 1982,
providing design services for a
variety of government and private
clients. Renovation work became a
specialty and a sensitivity to building
ecology and environmental issues
was soon realized.
In 1989, “Environmental Design and
Management” was appended to the
firm name to reflect the added
offerings of asbestos and indoor air
quality services. Throughout the
early 1990's, Morrison/EDM
provided asbestos services -
inspections and hazard management
plans - for national corporations,
completing 800+ projects located in

Other support services were soon
added by client request, including

and delivers site data for multi -
location design and construction
programs, and delivers that
information to the Project Team via
project web sites.
Commitment to the Existing
The inventory of existing buildings
warrants careful, intelligent
redevelopment. Although many
facilities are distressed, the
opportunity for creative hazard
abatement and reuse is tremendous.
Commitment to Sustainability
Appreciative of the vast inventory of
existing facility infrastructure,
Morrison/EDM has developed a
specific interest in sustainable
redevelopment. Once again, the
survey methodology is important in
identifying those elements that add

of resources and the overall human
