Gallaudet University – James Lee Sorenson Language and Communication Center

This Forrester Construction project involved the construction of a new three-story center for language and communication studies for Gallaudet University – a world leader in academic education for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing. The facility was built for LEED™ certification and is the University’s first “green” building.

The center provides students who are deaf and hard of hearing and university faculty with classrooms, computer laboratories, a television studio, clinics, libraries and office spaces.
