Brian Broadus AIA LEED AP BD+C's Summary

Since 1989 I have passionately pursued the competent evaluation and ethical preservation, restoration, or rehabilitation of existing buildings; the advance of design for education; an advocacy of the city; and excellence in building assembly. I manage architectural projects
• That are the product of a highly-professional, energetic, urban architecture office
• Through the process of rehabilitation, restoration, or preservation
• That, new or renewed, will serve a higher-education, lower-school, religious, or other institutional clientele
• That are demanding and deserving of superior managerial and technical attention
• That employ a measured and thoughtful sustainable design, construction, and operation strategy
• That can profitably market my firm through design excellence and precise administrative execution
.
I am architectural historian and an advocate for reasonable historic preservation, and know the minutia of preservation law. I am expert in International Building Code (IBC), Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG).

Brian Broadus AIA LEED AP BD+C's Projects

  • The Lexington Presbyterian Church

    • January 2006 to Present

    In 1844, Thomas Ustick Walter created this Shenandoah Valley town’s landmark. McDowell and Humphries expanded and classicized it in 1895. A 2002 six-alarm fire gutted it to a brick shell. Photographic evidence fueled a calculated restoration. Carefully-selected contemporary Greek Revival architectural details shaped convenience modifications. A comfortable, acoustically-reverberant temple rose out of the ruin, a sanctuary that deferred to the original architecture so modestly that today some visitors refuse to believe that the conflagration took place.

  • The Retreat for the Sick Students

    • July 2007 to Present

    In 1858, University of Virginia architect William Pratt tailored a typhoid fever infirmary around a revolutionary central heating and ventilation system, one driven by a sophisticated Massachusetts-made coal furnace. He installed into the Retreat pocketed four-sash windows controlling sunlight and applied deep wardroom balconies (both items restored in this campaign). The building’s solar orientation was intended to be therapeutic. The restoration rested the first and second Floors on top of a replicated, pre-plumbed basement located out of the way of the Commerce School’s expansion. The project recovered the original colors of the Italianate exterior, an early departure from Thomas Jefferson’s on-grounds raw-brick classicism. New, inconspicuous heating and air conditioning, fire-suppression, and power and data systems now thread through tight 19th century clearances. A new viewport exposes the salvaged furnace and a signage program interprets the ingenious original design. The restored property qualified for rehabilitation tax credits.

  • The Rice Center Education Building

    • October 2008 to Present

    Virginia Commonwealth University's Rice Education Building’s conference center, lower-school laboratory-classrooms, faculty offices, and teaching pavilion overlook the tidewater James River as it passes through Charles City County. Visitors reach it by crossing over ADAAG-compliant porous paving and following a Virginia bluestone pathway. The building is framed up of structural insulated panels and fitted with vegetative roofing. Water-source (“geothermal”) heat pumps condition the interior: a radiant slab heats it, while an absorptive slab, supplemented by forced-air dehumidification, cools it. A photovoltaic array electrifies the Rice Building, and a dedicated, computerized network monitors its energy consumption. It harvests rainwater for domestic use and to feed an outdoor ornamental fountain. It employs a drainfield-free wastewater treatment system.

  • Region One Headquarters for the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries

    • March 2007 to Present

    This new law-enforcement, wildlife research, and hurricane-response center is suspended on posts above a frequently-flooded marsh adjacent to Virginia’s historic Route Six in Charles City County. The car park is porous paving, and the wastewater treatment is innovative. The deep bronze sheet metal roofing and siding keep the structure inconspicuous, while a tower signals the building entry.

  • The 1902 Albert H. Olmsted Villa "Wildacre"

    • May 1998 to Present

    Olmsted Brothers briefly lured architect Irving Gill to New England from California, using the promise of a number of progressive commissions. This one “Wildacre,” is for the uncle of the landscape designers, and sits between Newport, Rhode Island's Ocean Avenue and Goose Neck Cove, an appendage of the North Atlantic. The rehabilitation took in all seven bedrooms, all seven baths, all building systems, all windows, and the installation of a new commercial catering kitchen. The exterior cedar shingles and new wood storm windows resist nor’easters. The existing swimming pool was retained, retooled, and re-landscaped. In 2013, the house changed hands for 14 million dollars.

  • The National Bank

    • August 2000 to Present

    A 1916 District-of-Columbia skyscraper design exported by Washington’s Marsh and Peter Architects to downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, the building uses the same granite-floored and -trimmed lobby-level banking hall as does the firm’s gold-domed landmark Farmers’ and Merchants’ Bank of Georgetown (now a PNC branch). This rehabilitation restored the monumental Roman cornice, double-hung windows, and grand steel-tracery hall fenestration visible in old photographs. The rehabilitation tax credits qualified expenditure on a new heating and air-conditioning, power, data, and emergency power system, as well as new automatic fire suppression and new, steel, operable windows. An addition houses executive offices and two new elevators, and a fire stair. Building regulation defines the National Bank to be a high-rise structure, with attendant restrictions.

  • The Colonel J.T.L. Preston Library

    • December 1996 to Present

    This rehabilitation that converted the 1929 Virginia Military Institute's closed-stack circulation library monitoring only print materials into a modern, digitally-aware university information center. The contract called for the design of new student carrels that complemented the Moorish architecture of the Institute. Of special note are the new off-hours-ice-making climate control system, the Archives’ high-capacity storage system, and the high-style Archives Reading Room.

  • The Henry Mansfield Cannon Memorial Chapel

    • August 2012 to Present

    The 1927 University of Richmond, Virginia, chapel is a test case for the durability of cast stone, a technology only ten years old at time the chapel was built, over quarried stone. This building envelope overhaul was principally designed to stop water seepage into the sanctuary—of particular concern because of the esteemed pipe organ inside—and end the freeze-thaw decay of artificial rock ornament that proved fragile. It installed through-wall flashings below the cast stone parapet copings, new sheet metal flashings generally, new gutter systems, and new nave and choir roofing slates. It replaced low-slope built-up-roofs with a thermoplastic polyolefin single-ply membrane. The nave art glass was reset in its stone tracery.
