Advantage Engineers provided both environmental and geotechnical engineering services and support for the design and construction of the Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union’s (PSECU) new headquarters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Advantage conducted due diligence services during the site selection process which identified the presence of historic landfills. Following the identification of these features, Advantage worked with the project team to engineer a solution which allowed the waste material to remain in place and have minimal impact on the overall development of the site.
The 235,000 sf building will have three stories. Some of the features include data/ communications and audio visual systems for security, a day care center, playground area and full kitchen. The exterior of the building will feature a combination of glass curtain wall and terra cotta panels. Construction is expected to be completed in October of 2013.
