Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia – 11th and 12 Floor Expansion

Project Description

It took just 24 months to complete this complex $52 million addition to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The goal of the project was threefold: to link the west and south towers of the existing building with a 14,000-square-foot bridge at the 10th floor roof level; to renovate the existing 11th and 12th floors and add 32 new patient rooms and staff areas; and to upgrade the elevator – all of which was undertaken simultaneously. With ongoing patient care of paramount importance, Target is managing limited site access, logistical challenges and all aspects of the project with the utmost care.
