Dating back to 2013, the University of Vermont has undertaken the planning and expansion of a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Initiative on campus in Burlington, Vermont. Partnering with the same architectural team that designed Jeffords Hall at UVM in 2007, LeMessurier joined Boston's Ellenzweig as well as Burlington's Freeman French Freeman to plan and execute a three-phase STEM facility at UVM. The phases include a new Laboratory Building, a new Classroom Building and a renovation of the existing Votey Hall (Engineering). As the completion of construction of the Laboratory Building draws to a close, UVM invited Freeman French Freeman and LeMessurier to address engineering students at the University to discuss the project. The discussion underscored the need for communication and understanding of first principles as the cornerstones of a successful project.
