Keith Binnie

Senior Associate

“It’s a privilege to work for mission-led institutions to help them maximize the impact of their capital investments.”

Keith has always been interested in the decision-making that leads to creating unique and special places. Growing up in Manchester, UK, at a time of urban renaissance for the post-industrial city, Keith was fascinated by the planning and design of the buildings and neighborhoods reshaping the public realm. It was a natural decision for him to combine studying architecture and town planning, graduating with a dual master’s in 2007, and beginning his career working as an urban designer in London.

After falling in love with a girl from New Jersey, Keith moved to the United States, and has since become an important part of Perkins Eastman’s College + University practice area. His primary focus is helping institutions make informed and impactful facilities-investment decisions. This includes being the senior planner and project manager for campus master plans and feasibility studies, including the programming and initial concept design of major projects.

With a commitment to data-driven decisions and consensus-building, Keith is accustomed to leading complex planning processes with significant stakeholder engagement and large consultant teams. He enjoys working with clients to gain a deep understanding of their space needs before collaboratively developing an implementable roadmap for improving their campus facilities.
