Suffolk County Community College East Ammerman Plant Operations & Public Safety Building

Addressing Deficiencies and Improving Functional Layout at the Ammerman Campus Warehouse


Selden, NY


Suffolk County Community College

Project Cost

$1.5 million


This 33,500 sf maintenance/ warehouse facility consists of a 40-year-old pre-engineered metal building and a pre-engineered extension housing multiple campus functions: Plant Operations Offices, Public Safety Offices, Warehouse, Print Shop, Auto Repair Shop, Carpentry Shop, and Plant Operations Store Rooms. LiRo provided design services for the renovation project.

About the Project

LiRo performed an investigation to analyze the Plant Operations and Public Safety Building’s deficiencies. LiRo then prepared solutions to correct various physical and functional deficiencies such as leaking roofs, energy-inefficient windows and doors, inadequate HVAC and electrical distribution systems, an antiquated fire alarm system, and poorly designed non-code-compliant interior spaces.


LiRo successfully completed the initial investigation report and construction documents necessary to resolve the building envelope issues, correct code deficiencies, and upgrade interior spaces for this $1.5 million project. Construction included multiple phases and was completed in 2015.
