Historic Lawther Hall at the University of Northern Iowa is LEED SILVER in 2019!

"Rohrbach Associates was excited to work on this challenging UNI Renovation project. Lawther Hall, originally constructed in 1938 with a substantial addition in 1950, is one of the historic buildings on the UNI campus. The existing 3-story, 108,000 SF residence hall went through a major remodel and modernization with goals to achieve a LEED Silver status. The approach to achieving this included energy conservation and renewable building materials. The greatest cost-benefit can be achieved when energy efficiency goals are established early in the life of the project. The design team achieved LEED credits through categories including Optimizing Energy Performance, Water Use Reduction, and Building Reuse." -- Steven A. Rohrbach, President of Rohrbach Associates P.C. Architects

Congratulations to the University of Northern Iowa, and thank you to Rohrbach Associates for making this project possible!
The Iowa State University Biosciences Building Bessey Addition is LEED SILVER in 2019!

This over 64,000 square-foot addition provided extra space for more inter-disciplinary laboratories for students and professors in the ISU Department of Genetics Development and Cell Biology, and the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology!

"The project [ISU Bessey Addition] is a teaching and research laboratory expansion to Bessey Hall on the ISU campus. With the addition being 100% laboratory spaces. There were no options for return air mechanical systems and all HVAC/Exhaust systems had to be 100% outside air making LEED a challenge. We achieved LEED Silver thru, but not exclusively with, energy-efficient HVAC systems, increased insulation in exterior walls and the roof and thru daylighting of all major spaces" -- Steven Rohrbach, President, Rohrbach Associates PC

Thank you to Rohrbach Associates P.C. Architects, for your excellent architectural work and for helping make this project possible! Check out a picture of the Bessey Addition at ISU and more of their work in Higher Education below!

Filmscene’s newest location opened recently in the Chauncey Building located in Iowa City. Not only will the programming and events held be unique but the interior finishes and architecture are not what you would typically associate with a movie theater. The building features circular architectural elements and a soft nature inspired palette.

The firm is built upon the concept of personalized service and design. We believe that successful building design reflects a concentrated interactive effort between the owner and architect to ensure that all needs and many wants are satisfied, within a functional and economic framework.

The firm of Rohrbach Associates PC provides Design and Management Services to a wide array of clients. Our project background is built on sound management practices in both the small and large project arenas. Our small projects receive the same attention as our large projects because the scope of our services are built around solving the particular issues and concerns of our clients whether that is packaged in a small project or large project.

Our project list reflects many satisfied clients that can attest to our proven track record on projects completed on time and within budget, because of the effort we put into getting to know our clients and consultant teams.


The mission of Rohrbach Associates PC is to create quality-designed environments that support and enhance our communities and the environment, and to maintain high professional and ethical standards.
