Lehigh University – Health, Science & Technology Building

Lehigh University’s 200,000 SF state-of-the-art academic and research facility provides a modern, flexible space for the College of Health. As the largest academic building on Lehigh’s main campus, the facility serves as a welcoming gateway for the public to view and engage in activities taking place in the “living laboratory.” The building includes a pedestrian bridge to other on-campus research facilities, a café with a green roof for native plants, and solar shades that mimic the microscopic image of a cell. Langan provided site feasibility services to evaluate several properties and assist in site selection, prepared the subdivision and land development plans, and evaluated the site lighting design. We also prepared a transportation impact study, which evaluated pedestrian access to/from the site and reallocated parking spaces removed during construction.
