UPMC South Tower Deconstruction
UPMC is selectively deconstructing part of the existing South Tower, Old Children's Hospital, on their downtown Pittsburgh campus. Langan designed and permitted the site and site logistics of the deconstruction. Safe and efficient pedestrian and vehicular access, as well as parking demand and re-assignment have been planned. Langan performed an environmental site assessment to identify environmental issues, and has implemented a groundwater monitoring program that will evaluate seasonal groundwater fluctuations. The results of the program will be used in the dewatering analysis.
