JHU Mudd Hall ExpansionE-Landscape is proud to announce that we’ve been selected to perform landscape installation for the expansion of Mudd Hall on the Homewood Campus of The Johns Hopkins University.

Johns Hopkins is known throughout the world for its medical and science curricula. This expansion project will enable the University to bring together in one new building undergraduate laboratories for chemistry, biology, biophysics, and neuroscience. This new laboratory building is part of a plan to revolutionize the way the natural sciences are taught at Hopkins.

The expansion, designed by architecture firm Ballenger of Philadelphia and constructed by Whiting Turner of Baltimore, is comprised of 105,000 square feet over four floors plus a basement. When complete, it will include 14 new laboratories, 19 faculty offices, five meeting/seminar rooms and a new student commons. The building will meet the standard for LEED Silver certification, with a goal of reducing energy use by half as compared with existing science buildings on campus.

The landscape for Mudd Hall’s expansion was designed by Mahan Rykiel of Baltimore. Our scope of work will include landscaping for two interior courtyards (including hoisting soil in via crane) and the construction of bioretention ponds and rain gardens.
