Long Island University New Veterinary Learning Center
As part of a strategic vision to advance education capabilities, Long Island University envisioned a new College of Veterinary Medicine. Comprised of a Veterinary Learning Center (VLC) and Teaching Research Center (TRC), the VLC program includes clinical skills, a medical imaging center, and small animal surgical suites, three 150- seat lecture halls, seminar rooms, and associated support spaces.
SBLM Architects was retained by LIU at the onset of this endeavor and has partnered with the University from the programming through the current construction phase. This Veterinary Learning Center is a new 32,000 sf purpose built educational building that harmonizes with its neo-classical architectural campus context.
The project received praise from the Architectural Review Board for the design approach.
