Graduate School of Education
Philadelphia, PA

This project was a 43,000 SF adaptive reuse and renovation of an existing structure originally built in the 1960’s for classrooms and offices.  It included extensive infrastructure upgrades, a revitalized façade, and reprogrammed interior space plan.  Administrative areas were integrated into a larger, more cross-functional workspace; basement level storage was converted into high technology classroom and computer facilities; and three large seminar rooms were added to the five existing along the window wall section above the main entrance.

 
“EwingCole was extraordinarily successful in transforming an inflexible older building into a newer, state-of-the art facility that meets the needs of our students, faculty, and staff.   EwingCole understood and incorporated our expressed goals into a renovated building that has been heralded as a model of excellence on the University of Pennsylvania campus.”

The new Skenandoa House is a product of the 20,000 SF historic structure transformed from a former fraternity house into a new residence hall.  The facility was able to achieve LEED Gold status.

 
“The partnership between EwingCole and our institution was invaluable in our efforts to make Skenandoa House more environmentally efficient. The finished project consumes significantly less energy per square foot than our other residence halls.  Skenandoa House began as an experiment, and we are very pleased with the results and payback we’ve received; we have retained EwingCole to apply similar strategies in the renovation of Hamilton College’s Kirner Johnson Hall.”

Multi-Purpose Activity Center
Long Branch, NJ

The MAC is a 210,000 SF multi-purpose center.  It features a training and fitness center, a 5,000 seat arena with retractable seating, 200 meter running track, conference center, bookstore, and private suites.  The arena space doubles as a concert venue and convocation center.

 
“The Multipurpose Activity Center has provided an exciting and state of the art venue which translates into renewed pride by the entire Monmouth community.  There is a real energy happening in the building and it certainly is the ‘talk of the town’. Jaw-dropping as one walks onto the concourse, the design captured the physical needs of the university, while maintaining the integrity of the entire campus.  I believe THE quote in the northeast, this year, will be: “did you see what they built on the Monmouth campus- it’s a definite WOW-factor!”
