Most recently, Bush was with Smith Carter Architects and Engineers, where he was market leader for higher education and civilian government, and earlier, with Cooper Carry, where he was an associate. His responsibilities have included science and technology project leadership, programming, laboratory planning, and the design of research and educational facilities for universities, government agencies and research institutions.
Among the many research projects on which Bush has worked are the design of several research laboratories at the Georgia Institute of Technology’s Marcus Nanotechnology Building; the programming, design and laboratory planning of the School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University; and a continuum of projects comprising Emory University’s Science Commons, a campus precinct that co-locates the departments of chemistry, psychology, environmental studies, computer science, physics and mathematics.
“Don is going to be a terrific addition to our science group and to our entire team here at LAS,” said Joe Greco, president. “His wonderful enthusiasm for his work along with his extensive experience make him a great fit for our organization.”
“Lord, Aeck & Sargent is a firm I’ve highly regarded for a long time,” Bush said. “It’s a very well-known and respected firm and a recognized leader in science and technology, especially in higher education. Joining LAS is a natural affinity with my career. It’s an incredibly appealing opportunity for me to lead the science and technology practice area here and one that I’m very excited about.”
