RE-ENVISIONING AN AGING CAMPUS WORKHORSE
Previously housed within separate buildings across the University’s Center City campus, the School of Public Health now has a new, centrally-located home.
Strada’s extensive renovation transformed Nesbitt Hall, a seven-story, 78,000 sq. ft. building originally constructed in 1967. The building was completely retrofitted to improve energy efficiency by installing new high-efficiency HVAC systems, new windows, and continuous perimeter insulation. Facilities include instructional computer laboratories, large innovative research spaces, an environmental and industrial hygiene laboratory, open seating areas, conference areas, and numerous student lounges. The building also houses two unique “idea labs” for collaborative student work.
