With an eye on safety, B&F coordinated construction activities to minimize disruption to students as we helped Lutheran Theological Seminary (now United Lutheran Seminary) oversee a simultaneous renovation and new construction in the heart of campus.
The construction of the new 60,000-square-foot Brossman Learning Center at Philadelphia’s Lutheran Theological Seminary was a very ambitious project for an institution of this size. The design preserves an iconic 1888 Victorian Gothic façade that faces the campus quad, while creating a sleek, modern addition that looks outward toward the public.
The B&F team carefully coordinated construction activities to minimize disruption to the 400 graduate students on this small campus. Our Project Managers worked with contractors to resolve technical issues and maintain a safe campus environment throughout construction.
Adding to a 19th century masonry building poses many challenges, from ensuring structural integrity as sections are removed, to minimizing damage to aging masonry and properly aligning new and existing floor plates. Successfully completed in time for the Fall semester, the new Center supports the Seminary’s educational mission, providing classrooms, meeting rooms, informal gathering spaces, offices, and storage for library collections.
