When the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) started renovations on their 3930 Chestnut Street location, the work included an exterior restoration to the limestone façade, a new vestibule storefront, window work, interior renovations, new roof chillers, and site work. We were brought in to help with the architecture, interior design, and engineering.
We also helped to modernize the elevators. We placed elevator machine rooms on the roof, and the cabs and elevator surrounds received finish upgrades. With six floors of multi-department office space to renovate, we designed a training center, conference suite, collaboration rooms, 350 staff workstations, and necessary staff amenities. Those floors also received an infrastructure replacement and system upgrade.
Outside, our civil engineers/landscape architects assisted with the development of exterior improvement plans. We designed a re-grade of pedestrian routes from Chestnut Street and the interior parking lot to the main entry plaza, making them ADA compliant. A new entry plaza, stairs, ramp, and walkways to the main building entrance were also constructed and planting design refreshed the existing landscape areas.
