Drexel University - One Drexel Plaza Engineering Labs Relocation

Drexel University's existing machine and car shops and engineering labs were relocated from the Hess Building to a new location at 3101 Market Street.

The relocation project involved the following:

  • Machine Shop
  • Air Lab
  • SAE Car Club
  • Lighting Lab
  • Bridge Club
  • Zhou Lab
  • Combustion Lab
  • Optics Lab

Project scope included structural demolition (completed at night to avoid impact to other building tenants), new partitions, and new power, lighting, exhaust, and compressed air systems. The project also included the moving and rigging of all equipment and furniture to their final destinations and the salvage and recovery of two 40-ton AHU's from the roof for future use by the University.

Close coordination between the project team was necessary in order to meet the compressed project schedule which included design and construction.
