Michael Barnes, Publisher of High-Profile Monthly

HP’s February 2018 issue is online. We are excited to have excellent examples of restoration and renovation in this issue’s focus: notably, the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) Harleston Parker Award winner, Boston Public Library, page 40; the Boston Preservation Alliance award-winning McMullen Museum of Art and Conference Center, page 11; and currently in progress, the Stoughton Public Library, page 12.
HP attended the annual BSA awards event at the BSA Space 280
Congress St., Boston.
March’s HP will focus on the planning, design, and construction of our local institutions and schools. This issue is distributed at the annual Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) 2018 North Atlantic Regional Conference.

This year’s conference, titled, “Gown, Gown, Gown, Gown & Town” will focus on creative approaches to challenges in higher education.
Speakers include Elayne Campos, Division of Capital Asset Management
(DCAM); Dale Hamel, Finance, and Information Technology, Framingham State University; Rachel Madden, Massachusetts Executive Office of Administration and Finance; Michael K. Owu, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Investment Management Company (MITIMCo); Stephanie Pollack, Massachusetts Department of Transportation; and Ann Reale, Massachusetts Executive Office of Education. For more information visit:
The March HP issue will also sport its annual MEP and Energy Supplement plus a special section devoted to women in construction.


HP will be covering the 11th IIDA New England Interior Design Awards, hosted at the Boston Park Plaza on Wednesday, March 14. The Design Awards event was created in 2007 to celebrate teamwork and showcase interior design projects throughout New England.
This year, IIDA NE has moved the event to allow a larger capacity. It offers an exclusive VIP pre-party to give our sponsors and their guests an opportunity to meet the judges.
The 2018 Design Awards will feature a cocktail hour, plated dinner, awards presentation, and conclude with an on-site post-celebration.
