Laborers’ District Council Education and Training Center
This 60,000 SF, three-story, state-of-the-art facility is home to the Laborers’ District Council Education and Training Center, a space to train professional construction laborers. It also includes a Community Learning Center, which provides job, education, and basic life skills training in collaboration with Temple University. Langan completed environmental due diligence; collected and analyzed soil/fill material samples; prepared a Material Management Plan; and developed designs for stairs, ramps, walls, furnishings, and paving to complement the building and create a seamless transition from the entrance to the lobby. We also developed a plan to manage soils on-site, minimizing the cost and downtime during construction. Langan’s multidisciplinary approach of soil management, stormwater management design, and materials selection helped the project achieve LEED Silver certification.
