The Comcast Center and Comcast Technology Center

The Comcast Center and Comcast Technology Center

The initial Comcast Center project included the construction of the 52-story office building, an 18-story office building, and a public plaza area with a restaurant. The total floor area is approximately 1.9 million gross sf and was intended to be LEED rated. Pennoni provided professional engineering services including civil/site work, utilities, drainage, traffic, survey, and necessary coordination with all agencies having jurisdiction over the Comcast Center project. The project included removal of Cuthbert Street between 17th Street and 18th Street, which necessitated significant utility relocations. 

The second project, Comcast Technology Center will be the tallest in the US outside of New York and Chicago and include more than 1.3 million-sf of office space, including an NBC television station, a 10,000-sf ballroom, a luxury hotel on the top eight floors, and a sub-grade concourse with retail uses and a tunnel connecting to the adjacent SEPTA Suburban Station.

Pennoni’s role in this iconic project included land and title surveys, geotechnical, environmental, civil/site, and transportation engineering. The project required zoning approval and City Council ordinances for which Pennoni played an instrumental role providing the necessary technical support. The below grade parking garage required a traffic impact study which also studied pedestrian movements between the Comcast headquarters and new Technology buildup.
