3 More School Districts Appoint RYEBREAD Architects

Mount Holly, NJ, 25 August 2008 – With the new academic year starting, Mount Holly’s RYEBREAD Architects will be working for three additional South Jersey school districts. The Hainesport, Harrison Township, and Mount Holly Boards of Education have all appointed this service-oriented firm as their Architects-of-Record for the upcoming year.

“This further establishes RYEBREAD as the premier public-sector architects in Burlington County,” according to Medford Superintendent Dr. Joseph Del Rossi. “They provide great long-term value to their Clients.” RYEBREAD has served the Medford Board of Education since 1989. Over the last two decades, they have been responsible for over $100 million in capital improvements in the District, including two new schools, a transportation center, several additions, and renovations at all five original educational facilities.

According to Southampton Superintendent Michael Harris, this firm “takes the time to understand the economics and culture of each school district, and thus better serves the individual needs of each Client.” RYEBREAD has been Architect-of-Record for the Southampton BoE since 1994, with a new school, two referenda, and numerous facility upgrades to their credit.

The name “RYEBREAD” is an acronym for Regan Young England Butera; Referendums, Engineering, Architecture, Design. Their specialty is providing professional services for renovations and expansions to building envelopes, systems, and interiors for public- and private-sector entities around Burlington County, and beyond.

To better serve their Clients, RYEBREAD now also provides services for security & alternative environmental control systems, as well as Smart Growth planning. RYEBREAD principal Scott Charles England is recognized for his knowledge of CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design), a “passive” method of reducing crime and the fear of crime. Principal Angelo P. Butera concentrates on sustainable architecture, and was recently responsible for the new “green” library at Fort Dix Elementary School in Pemberton. All three principals are not just architects, but also NJ-licensed planners and interior designers. This equips them to oversee projects from the concept phase through to final fit-out.

In addition to the Hainesport, Harrison, Medford, Mount Holly, Pemberton, and Southampton Districts, RYEBREAD has been reappointed at Eastampton, Edgewater Park, New Hanover, Oaklyn, and Tabernacle. Their public-sector projects include not only schools, but also municipal buildings, libraries, police stations, public works buildings, and restorations of historic assets.
