Neumann Leather Redevelopment

OVERVIEW
Langan is providing multidisciplinary redevelopment services for this site, the home of the former Neumann Leathers Factory. The project includes a mixed-use center with industrial arts space, office space, retail and amenity uses, and residential units, and involves the renovation of portions of the site buildings, demolition of specific structures, and design and construction of three major buildings. The overall redevelopment scheme is anchored by the principals of transit-oriented development, with the nearby Hoboken train and ferry terminals, and sustainability. Green roofs and a neighborhood-scale stormwater management system, incorporated into the interior plaza space, are anticipated to address localized stormwater management issues. The project is targeting LEED Platinum certification, as well as certification under the LEED for Neighborhood Development program.

Riddle Hospital Master Plan

OVERVIEW
Riddle Hospital is part of Main Line Health and is in the design phase of a campus modernization project that will include a new patient pavilion. The pavilion is a 5-story, 229,000-SF medical facility that will house a surgical suite, along with 76 private patient rooms. In support of the hospital campus modernization, Langan provided a geotechnical study for the new patient pavilion development and the garage, which included conducting a subsurface exploration and analyses of the conditions relative to the construction. Langan worked closely with the structural engineer to customize the foundation system for settlement compatibility both within the pavilion structure itself and with adjoining structures.
