LEHIGH UNIVERSITY HEALTH, SCIENCE, AND TECHNOLOGY BUILDING
At the heart of the Health Science Technology Building is its main entry space, which is adorned with large format Panel Grilles that match the exterior porte cochere's metal baffles. The design intent was to create a cohesive and visually striking space that would welcome visitors into the building and provide a window into the cutting-edge research and innovation happening inside.
The new Health, Science, and Technology Building not only stands as an example of usage-centered design, but also of sustainability - targeting LEED Gold Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council for its emphasis on energy and water efficiency.
THE CHALLENGE & ACTION
The COVID-19 pandemic presented a significant challenge for the design and installation teams, but through careful coordination, they were able to bring this vision to life. Thanks to the expertise and experience of Rulon International and the installing contractor, the installation process was a breeze. With both parties having a strong working relationship, they were able to effectively coordinate their efforts and bring the design to life. The result is an awe-inspiring space that will undoubtedly inspire and facilitate scientific breakthroughs for years to come. The Health Science Technology Building stands as a testament to what can be achieved when experts come together, share their knowledge, and collaborate towards a common goal.
