The construction of the Dorrance H. Hamilton Building is one of the largest concrete green space projects in the City of Philadelphia. The project featured the demolition of an existing parking garage and the construction of a new subsurface parking garage, clinical academic building, and green space to become the new focal point of the Thomas Jefferson University’s campus. The building program included a large, first floor lobby and event space, a 300-seat auditorium, and classrooms with the upper floors designed with specific rooms for computerized simulation and general teaching for interdisciplinary training.
