Eastern State Penitentiary – Visitor’s Center Phase 1
This project laid the foundation for a new all-inclusive Visitor’s Center. The project revitalizes the site and makes it more accessible to Philadelphia’s citizens and all the visitors they receive from around the world.
CEG Engineering was engaged, as part of a multi-disciplinary team, to provide civil and site design, as well as, to support the project during construction. The proposed Visitor Center would require a new water service, sanitary service, and ADA accessibility. Additionally, Eastern State partnered with the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) and received grant funds for a retrofit of the stormwater system. The multidisciplinary team consisted of historic preservationists, architects, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, contractors, fabricators, and the Eastern State staff.
