 Philadelphia, PA (July 2012) – EwingCole, one of the nation’s leading architecture, engineering, and interior design firms, is pleased to announce that the United States Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS) is the recipient of a 2012 Design-Build Merit Award, given by the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA).

EwingCole and STV were commissioned by the United States Army Corps of Engineers, New York District to design at the US Military Academy’s (USMA) historic West Point campus. The mission of USMAPS is to provide focused academic, military and physical instruction in a moral and ethical environment and to prepare, motivate and inspire candidates for success at the USMA.

“EwingCole is proud to be part of the team that successfully completed the first design-build acquisition for the USMA,” said John Capelli, AIA, EwingCole’s project principal. “We developed a planning and design solution that supports and enhances the mission of USMAPS while leveraging the natural opportunities of the site.”

The award will be bestowed in New Orleans at the DBIA national conference during a ceremony on the evening of November 8 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.  In announcing the awards, the DBIA stated that this year’s program “was the most competitive to date and the submission was rigorously judged by a panel of owners and DBIA professionals.”

EwingCole and WTW Architects Team Up to Design New “Fusion” Building

Philadelphia, PA (June 2012) – EwingCole, an award-winning architecture and engineering firm, in a joint venture with WTW Architects, has been selected by East Stroudsburg University (ESU) to design the new Keystone Commons building.

According to ESU’s 2010 Campus Facilities Master Plan, it was determined that the Center for Hospitality, the University Center, the Computing Center and the Kemp Library were inefficient buildings in need of extensive renovations to accommodate the needs of an increasing student population. In lieu of investing in these aging buildings, ESU determined it was more practical to bring these programs together in a new Keystone Commons.

“Trending on higher education campuses across the country is the design of facilities that collocate previously separated student activities,” said Chuck Rudalavage, AIA, LEED AP, principal of EwingCole’s Higher Education Practice. “The fusing of these four programs into a centrally-located Commons is a tremendous opportunity to change the face of student life on the Campus.”

In order to maintain continuous operations, the 269,000-square-foot Keystone Commons is being constructed in two phases. The first phase is approximately 162,000 square feet and expected to be complete by 2015. The building is being designed to achieve LEED Silver certification and will include digitally interactive spaces for group projects, an art gallery and the University’s campus-wide data center. The project’s estimated construction cost is $90m.

The winning projects were announced on May 16th at the Excellence in Structural Engineering design awards program held at the Top of the Tower at 3 Logan Square, Philadelphia.

The Dale and Frances Hughes Cancer Center of Pocono Medical Center won the “2012 Outstanding Project Award.”  Completed this past spring, the 65,000 square-foot cancer center consists of composite slab on metal deck construction with a lateral system composed of ordinary steel concentrically braced frames. Drilled piers make up the structure’s foundation. The building was designed for future expansion up to six additional stories. A skywalk footbridge of steel trusses connects the Cancer Center to the main hospital. United Therapeutics’ New Headquarters project won an “Award of Merit.”  This eight-story office tower with two below-grade parking levels beneath an elliptical auditorium structure presented structural challenges.  Support of the auditorium shape, […]
