M. Miller Gorrie Center

The M. Miller Gorrie Center received the first USGBC LEED Gold Certification in the state of Alabama and is the first LEED-Certified building at Auburn University. A university study found that the Gorrie Center used 40% less electricity, 48% less chilled water for the HVAC system, and 27% less domestic water than nine other similar university structures.

American Institute of Architects (AIA) Alabama Chapter Merit Award, 2007

We were able to execute this contemporary LEED Gold building within the context of Auburn University’s design requirements.

And it worked. All of the sustainable features we designed and built into that building are indeed making a significant difference.

Mike Tillman
Executive Vice President, CMH Architects

We have been extremely pleased with the architectural work of CMH on the new classroom facility for the CADC’s Department of Building Science.

University clients are always difficult, and a client group made up of architecture and construction faculty could not have been easy. CMH demonstrated only the highest level of professionalism throughout the process, and the result is a building that the College of Architecture, Design and Construction; Auburn University; and the construction industry can be extremely proud of.
