Michigan State University to use SERF Foundation property

SERF Foundation’s (SERF) relationship with MSU School of Planning Design and Construction (SPDC) continues to mature. In October 2016, the two institutions reached an agreement for SPDC to use Foundation property located at 1300 East Lake Lansing Road, East Lansing, Michigan for teaching, research, and demonstration as a landscape architecture laboratory.

This is the property on which SERF, SPDC, Haworth and other industry partners intend to build a model green office building, the Wave.

SERF Foundation has an established relationship with MSU’s School of Planning, Design and Construction (SPDC) and works directly with professors who are renowned experts in the field of environmental sustainability of the entire built environment and high-performance buildings including SPDC Director, Dr. Scott Witter, and Dr. Matt Syal, Professor at MSU.

Through this latest endeavor, SERF foundation continues on its mission to providing education in the area of environmental sustainability. This is in addition to other activities including sponsoring seminars and workshops, written publications, providing internships and scholarships to students and providing input and support for research by Michigan State University.
