University of Pennsylvania Health System – Penn Tower & Garage Demo


The demolition of the Penn Tower was necessary for the University of Pennsylvania Health System to move forward with their construction of the new hospital tower. Prior to any deconstruction, P. Agnes scheduled a pre-demolition meeting with city code officials and Brandenburg, (demolition sub), to review the logistics, demolition, and safety plans. Due to the new rules and regulations instituted by the City of Philadelphia for permitting a comprehensive scope had to be approved, and permits pulled by the demolition subcontractor, Brandenburg.
