Oversight of the Academic Village Initiative
In the spring of 2009, Point Park University created the role of University architect/planner to direct the Academic Village Initiative, the $244 million campus and public enhancement space plan.
For this key position, Point Park chose Elmer B. Burger II, who oversees the initiative in its entirety, reporting to Bridget Mancosh, the University's senior vice president of finance and operations. In his role, Burger also assists in constructing an environmental, sustainable overlay for the project.
A Pittsburgh native, Burger has more than 30 years of experience in architecture, design, project management and field supervision. His experience encompasses education, urban design, office buildings, hotels, sports facilities and public housing. Burger has worked in such cities as Boston and Washington, D.C., but has spent much of his career in his hometown of Pittsburgh, where his projects have included the award-winning PNC Firstside Center.
