Lehman College Science Facility 

City University of New York | CUNY 

LERA was the structural engineer for a new 69,000-sf (6,400-sm) science facility featuring an entry defined by a multi-story glass atrium linking graduate and undergraduate wings, a central courtyard containing a constructed wetland that serves as a model of urban biotecture, and an elevated walkway connecting the new building to Gillet Hall, an historic 1930s Gothic revival classroom building. The project also included the renovation of Gillet Hall.


Achieving LEED Platinum certification, the science facility was the first LEED-certified building in the City University of New York, and is intended to serve as a “campus within a campus” offering laboratory, teaching and administrative functions to the broader community.
