2:00PM Departure from the John Olver Design Building atrium
4:00PM Adjourn to prepare for the banquet

The Olver Design Building opened in January 2017 and has received much praise.  It is the first and largest cross laminated timber (CLT) academic building in the United States. The Design Building represents unique design concepts and is the home of our Landscape Contracting major.  It was recently named the Jury's Choice for Wood Innovation in the WoodWorks 2018 Wood Design Awards.  Join UMass faculty member and alum Mike Davidsohn (S'86 Landscape Contracting) for a tour of this fantastic building and the grounds around it that manage the sites storm water.  Design studios, rain gardens, green roofs, Assembly Space and many other state of the art aspects of the Olver Design Building will be visited on the tour.
