Meyerson Hall

Meyerson Hall

Location:
210 South 34th Street

Phase:
In Construction

Planning Strategy:
This site serves as the institutional identity for PennDesign. As such, the building represents in practice the knowledge shared in the school's programs: architecture, planning, fine arts, landscape architecture and historic preservation. The renovation projects will result in a set of facilities that emphasize the studio, seminar and research activities of PennDesign students, faculty, and scholars in all the disciplines of the school.

Program:
The Master Plan for renovations of Meyerson Hall directs multi-phased improvements to studios, common areas, entryways, and the fabrication lab.

Century Bond Program:
Phased renovations to Meyerson Hall include energy efficiency upgrades funded by $11.6M from the Century Bond program. HVAC infrastructure upgrades will include: new HVAC distribution, new air handlers, conversion of existing units to variable air volume, high efficiency motors with variable frequency drives and a new building automation system and new switchgear – Completion of the Century Bond work is scheduled for Fall 2016.
