jBH3, in collaboration with Drexel Facilities’ Interior Design Group, designed a comfortable yet technically advanced atmosphere, which is the centerpiece to the Enrollment Management Administrative Office renovation. The renovation included the removal of the interior finish and building systems exposing the structural elements of this 1890’s era building. This “fresh start” allowed the jBH3 team to provide improved workflow, new building systems and improved energy efficiency. Removing the inadequate storm window system and customizing the existing sashes to accept new insulated glazing restored the expansive original window system located in the new “Welcome Center”. This allowed not only improved energy efficiency but also flooded the space with natural light.
