To establish international squash court standards, the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) determined that it would be necessary to build a brand-new facility. A major difficulty was the demolition of the existing building and completion of a new building within 15 months. After weeks of working on the various aspects of preconstruction, it was deemed that this was not feasible. LF Driscoll – in conjunction with EwingCole and the UPenn Facilities Department – embarked on a significant value engineering exercise to evaluate renovating the existing structure within the allocated timeframe. After intensive investigation and alternatives evaluation, a solution was developed to renovation the existing courts.
