Perry Dean was a sponsor and exhibiting business partner of the 2011 Spring NNECERAPPA Conference. This year's conference was held at Norwich University, with most events occurring in the Wise Campus Center, completed by Perry Dean in the summer of 2007. Rick Jones, a Senior Associate and Director of Sustainable Design with Perry Dean, also spoke at the conference and conducted a building tour of the campus center.
The topic was "Building a Campus Center for YOUR Institution", and was focused on the challenges faced by the programming, design, and construction process of a campus center. The Wise Campus Center was used as a case study for the presentation, and Rick was complemented by a number of team members who participated in the project: Chris Wilkins (Mechanical Engineer with Hallam///ICS), Brad McKay (Director of Construction for Norwich University), and the entire team from E.F. Wall & Associates, who were the general contractor for the project (Bob Lord Jr., President; Wayne Raymond, Site Superintendent; and Jerry Dunbar, Project Manager).
