University of Pennsylvania – Perry World House

The University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) expanded their Philadelphia campus with the addition of Perry World House, a gathering place for faculty and students from all twelve of UPenn's schools to engage with eminent international scholars and policymakers on pressing global issues of the 21st century. Construction included a partial demolition of the structure and a 7,200-SF addition to the existing historic portion of the building. Now complete, Perry World House includes classrooms, offices, lecture halls, and multipurpose spaces. Site improvements included a plaza, service court, and pedestrian walkways. Langan provided a variety of services on the project, including an environmental assessment, survey, site/civil, geotechnical and transportation engineering, and permitting.
