The Pavilion Foundation Fills Up at Penn Medicine
How much concrete does it take to fill the foundation of The Pavilion, a new patient tower for Penn Medicine? Enough to fill a Goodyear blimp, according to an article in the Philadelphia Business Journal. Penn Medicine released a time lapse video of the foundation pouring showing the base of the 1.5 million-square-foot Pavilion filling up with 6,540 cubic yards of concrete in West Philadelphia.
PennFIRST, a team comprised of the global healthcare design expertise of HDR, Foster+Partners, BR+A, L.F. Driscoll and Balfour Beatty, is working to deliver the project design through an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process. IPD is a collaborative approach that promotes team problem solving and innovative thinking.
