TEI Group awarded contract with WDF to modernize 6 elevators at 17 Lexington Avenue

TEI Group awarded contract with WDF to install 6 overhead gearless elevators at Baruch College.

Built in 1929, the Lawrence and Eris Field Building at 17 Lexington Avenue is the historic hub and sentimental heart of Baruch College.

Planned renovations for the Field Building will ensure that 17 Lex joins the other College buildings as a model environment for twenty-first century education. This multiphase project puts a strong emphasis on sustainability, as the renovated 17 Lex ultimately aims to attain a LEED Silver designation from the US Green Building Council.

"This long-awaited renovation will make the lives of students, faculty, and staff easier; maximize energy efficiency; and enable the Field Building at 17 Lex to be an even better neighbor to the Flatiron/Gramercy Park community. Baruch College deserves a state-of-the-art building that will thrive far into the 21st century." – Mitchel B. Wallerstein, President, Baruch College.
