DVASE Honors Keast & Hood with Multiple Awards
The Delaware Valley Association of Structural Engineers honored two Keast & Hood projects during their 2017 Annual Dinner & Engineering Awards ceremony on Thursday, May 18th.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Philadelphia, PA Temple received an Outstanding Project Award in an highly competitive project category. The Temple is a four-story building of approximately 45,000 SF in area and features one of the most ornately detailed natural stone facades built in Philadelphia in nearly 100 years. Designed to the Church’s demanding criteria, the building was completed in 2016 and serves over 40,000 members from the Philadelphia region. Keast & Hood served as the prime structural engineering consultant to Perkins + Will with FFKR Architects.
The Milton & Catherine Hershey Conservatory at Hershey Gardens received an Outstanding Project Award in the $2-$10 Million project category. In addition to becoming the Garden’s new main entrance, the 16,000 SF building provides a year-round space for a number of education and exhibition areas. Keast & Hood provided structural engineering for the project under architecture firm, LSC Design, Inc.
Thank you to the Delaware Valley Association of Structural Engineers for a wonderful dinner and awards ceremony and congratulations to all of our partners on both projects for the well-deserved recognition!
