Tour Description
Architects Thomas Platz, AIA and Gabrielle Russell, LEED AP of Platz Associates will be on hand to discuss their award-winning renovation of the Bates Mill No. 1 Wing, as well as their ongoing work in redeveloping the Bates Mill complex in its entirety.

Working on the Bates Mill complex since 1996, Platz Associates has redeveloped about 72% of the mill's developable space with plans to develop more in the future. The redevelopment efforts have brought approximately 2,000 jobs back to the complex. As Platz Associates continues their work, they hope the 1,200,000 square foot mill complex will employ as many people as the Bates Mill Company did during its heyday, over 6,000 people.

Emerging Professionals Committee:
In addition to the tour, our Emerging Professionals Committee will be on hand to answer questions about their newly launched ARE workshop and Study Group.


Preregistration by October 11th appreciated.
