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.

Navigating the history of the Schuylkill Canal

About the project

How do you bring an historic industrial site to life for visitors? The significance of the site may be attributed to early industrial history and the evolution of the canal industry throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Looking to the past, present, and future, the Interpretive Plan explores the site’s role in industrial history, as well as the site’s natural history and recreational opportunities while encouraging stewardship of the Reach’s unique resources.

Site-specific history programs, historic and natural trail journeys, interpretive signage, exterior exhibit stations, interior exhibits, live entertainment, and recreational programs comprise the detailed plan. The first step in implementing the plan entailed a series of interpretive signs designed to complement the historic character of the site and allow visitors to obtain information quickly and easily. The signs were fabricated using high pressure laminate panels that are strong and durable, ideal for outdoor use.
