LERA led the structural design of the new Center for Agriculture and Natural Resources, consolidating the previously dispersed departments of Plant Sciences, Fisheries and Wildlife, Agricultural Business and Animal Sciences into a new modern campus. Designed to meet LEED Silver criteria, the facility consists of five levels above grade, with a gross area of 100,931 gsf (9,377 gsm), and contains classrooms, laboratories, a conservatory greenhouse, cold water fisheries, a meat cutting lab, conference and office space, a lecture hall, computer labs and a café overlooking a monumental stair.

 

Part of the project involved the design of a concrete pad to support a new 450 ekW emergency generator.
