Drexel University Race Street Dormitory
Philadelphia, PA

Working for construction manager INTECH Construction along with project architect Erdy McHenry Architecture, Pennoni Associates provided survey, land development, geotechnical engineering, and landscape architecture for this fast-tracked dormitory on Race Street for Drexel University's campus.

A design-build delivery method was chosen by Drexel for this 130,000 square foot student residence to accomodate a 13-month schedule. The project includes a grand stair and bi-level courtyard surrounding the 12-story L-shaped dormitory that is home to 490 students in 130 two-bedroom suites. To meet the demanding schedule, Pennoni also provided close coordination with City agencies during the zoning, design review and permitting phases.
