Turner provided preconstruction and construction services for this 700,000 sq. ft. medical research facility, part of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s South Campus. The South Campus project is an extension of the site preparation phase also performed by Turner. Phase I is a four-story steel frame building with an ancillary Central Utilities Plant that is capable of supporting the initial fit-out spaces included in Phase II. A shared, below-ground link, Phase I houses support functions, laboratories, and a vivarium. Phase I achieved LEED® Silver Certification. Phase II of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia South Campus facility is a 12-story steel frame tower built atop the existing and occupied four-story structure. Early bid packages and design assist for steel and envelope, along with a fast track design assist process, commenced prior to issuance of a GMP. The envelope of the building is a curved and jutting modular curtain wall façade made of unitized aluminum and glass units textured with terra cotta rain screen and applied aluminum components. The tower houses three floors of general office and conference spaces, four floors of research laboratories, and a two story mechanical/electrical floor. The structure, facade, vertical transportation, mechanical, and electrical systems can be expanded to 27 stories through phase construction. Phased occupancy began in September 2009. Phase II achieved LEED® Gold Certification. Work included major infrastructure work such as excavation and rerouting of major utilities within a tight urban site.
