Isett served on the project team with Spillman Farmer Architects and Alvin H. Butz Construction for Penn State University Lehigh Valley’s $14.4 million campus addition. The three-story, 20,500-square-foot expansion features a new student café on the first floor, a lounge and club offices on the second floor, and the Charles W. Dent Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) wing on the third floor.
The new Dent STEM Wing features:
- 2,200 sq. ft. laboratory to accommodate organic chemistry courses
- Prep lab, equipment room, and lab technician office
- Lounge and office for STEM tutoring programs
- 948 sq. ft. classroom and two faculty offices
With the addition of the lab, Penn State Lehigh Valley can now offer organic chemistry on the campus, enabling its students to complete the full complement of undergrad courses required for medical school.
Isett’s services for the project included survey, forensic building investigation, environmental consulting, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, construction materials testing, and project management & construction services.
