The MSU School of Planning, Design and Construction (SPDC) announces the next Industry Seminar Series event, slated for Thursday, Mar. 24, 2016, at the Human Ecology Building on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing.

The featured speaker will be Douglas Maibach, chairman of Barton Malow Enterprises and executive vice president of Barton Malow Company. He will present on Re-imagining the Building Process and Building Experience. Maibach grew up with Barton Malow Company, a 91-year-old, employee-owned, family controlled business. In 1984, he graduated from MSU with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, and quickly joined the Barton Malow ranks full-time.

Barton Malow’s core purpose--Building with the American Spirit: People, Projects and Communities--has shaped the company’s identity from its inception. Over the years, their portfolio of work has reflected this purpose, as well as their core values of Integrity, Partnership and Empowerment. Within the last 10 years, Barton Malow has successfully executed and procured hundreds of contracts throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico, many of which have gained local and national attention due to their unique scope of work and/or building design. An example of this, is the construction project currently underway for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) here at MSU. The groundbreaking for the FRIB took place in 2014, and the building is scheduled to open in 2022.

The SPDC Industry Seminar Series consists of lectures and presentations by invited speakers who are industry leaders in the Built Environment profession. Past presenters include:

Joseph Maguire, president and CEO of Wolverine Development Corporation, and president and co-founder of the Society of Environmentally Responsible Facilities (SERF), was featured speaker in Sept. 2015 and serves as the facilitator of the Series.

This event is free and open to the public. The lecture will take place from 5-5:45 p.m. in Room 300 in the MSU Human Ecology Building in East Lansing. A reception sponsored by the Barton Malow Company will follow the lecture.
