Strada is taking active measures to ensure the health of our Team Members and also to assist in fighting the spread of COVID-19. We closed our physical offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia on March 17, 2020. We continue to operate remotely while considering CDC guidelines and recommendations to protect our team and clients for a safe reopening. We anticipate returning to our offices this summer, but will update our plans as new information becomes available.

Meetings will continue to be held virtually, via conference call or may be postponed. All of our Team Members will be working remotely under our work-from-home policy. Due to school and business closings, our staff may be active at various times throughout the day and evening. Please bear with us as we make every effort to stay on schedule and in contact with our clients and business colleagues.

About Strada

Strada means “street” in Italian. Streets matter to us. They’re the fundamental infrastructure of our cities and the core of our civic lives. They’re the connections between buildings, people, and public spaces. This is why we’re so inspired by them and it’s a shared commitment to these values that brought our principals together. Just as people mingle on city streets, our office is a place where we freely exchange ideas, challenging and inspiring one another to create exceptional work.

Architecture and site planning that work in harmony with natural features

About the project

Dick’s Sporting Goods’ new corporate campus – a $125 million dollar complex of 670,000 square feet in 5 interconnected buildings on a 116-acre site – provides extensive workspace for employees alongside spaces for athletics and leisure. In addition to merchandising rooms, executive and staff offices, the headquarters includes a complete athletic facility, auditorium, café, airstrip and hangar for the corporate jet. Strada worked with the developer and the tenant (DSG) from the outset to master plan the extensive site, which is immediately adjacent to the main runway of Pittsburgh International Airport.

Strada’s design for the landscape preserves and enhances the woodland character of the site with a blend of formal, garden, and naturalized planting. Terraces near the building’s central atrium integrate the topography of the woodland site into a lively water feature.

Two major initiatives were undertaken on the site to recycle stormwater. In the main parking lots, the landscaped islands will function as bioswales that filter runoff and provide passive irrigation to the plantings. At the head of the stream valley around which the building is sited, a new series of waterfalls and pools is created, fed by a rooftop cistern. Rooftop rainwater is collected and stored in a 50,000 gallon storage tank for recirculation through the series of five waterfalls – excess water flows out of the final waterfall and into the existing stream, creating a seasonal intermittent flow to supplement existing runoff.
