2015 USGBC Awards

The Penn State Harrisburg Educational Activities Building (EAB) project was the recipient of the "Adaptive Reuse Project of the Year" award at the 2015 U.S. Green Building Council of Central Pennsylvania Forever Green Gala. This project involved the renovation of, and addition to, the existing EAB at Penn State's Harrisburg Campus.This renovation maximized classroom space and added a 51,500 SF addition to house engineering laboratories and additional classroom space. The project includes several features designed to provide engineering students with learning opportunities, such as an infiltration demonstration area with three types of pervious paving, a rain garden, and stepped vegetated infiltration facilities for students to observe how stormwater infiltrates various surfaces and BMPs for improving water quality. Raudenbush provided survey, preliminary and final land development plans, FAA approval, municipal approvals, landscape plans, campus utility coordination, fire protection services coordination and landscape architectural treatments for this project.
