Margaret Burke Lee Center for Science and Health Careers
Gateway to campus turns spotlight on science/health careers programs, celebrates surrounding forest, and showcases sustainable advances
The 93,000-square-foot Lee Center—the largest construction project since the campus’s inception—represents Oakton Community College’s emphasis on student achievement and instructor excellence.
From the lobby’s polished concrete floors and reclaimed barn wood accent wall to the building integrated photovoltaics along the third floor corridor, the Lee Center brings sustainable advancements and sophisticated lab and simulation environments to the college.
- Enhances Oakton’s program with a new breed of interactive science spaces such as octagonal biology labs, a simulation hospital zone, nursing simulation labs, and undergrad research labs typically not found in community colleges
- Celebrates the Oakton campus’s natural and artistic highlights with its tiered composition, abundant views, and outdoor classrooms
- Showcases sustainable advances via biomimicry, response to a flood plain, and high-performance technologies
