Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Lehman Science and Technology Building
The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Lehman Science and Technology Building was the university's signature building for the construction program of the 1990 decade. This 130,000 square foot, 3-story facility is prominently located at the main entrance to the Daytona Beach Campus, where its streamlined geometric forms clad in sleek composite aluminum panels and reflective glass creates a visual statement that is symbolic of this nationally recognized aeronautical university.
The building's HVAC system is served by a thermal (ice) storage system that provides flexible, energy efficient cooling. The air conditioning system builds ice during off-peak utility rate periods and then uses it for cooling during on-peak periods, thereby significantly reducing generating costs and the overall building carbon footprint.
The overall flexibility of the building's design and systems placed it on the leading edge of technical and educational facility design.
