Three Crescent Drive

Office Building – Philadelphia Naval Yard, Philadelphia, PA

Three Crescent Drive is the second office building to be built in the planned commercial development area of the former Philadelphia Navy Yard.  The 97,700 sf building features a curved glass curtain wall facing the Crescent Park, a four-story lobby atrium and a unique rain screen façade.  We provided full mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering services for the core & shell office building as well as LEED energy modeling services and commissioning of the atrium smoke exhaust system.  The systems were designed to accommodate future tenant fit-out while being energy efficient and cost effective.  Although the owner ultimately elected not to pursue credit, we developed a Measurement & Verification plan and designed all the necessary metering and control capability to achieve the LEED® M & V credit.  The LEED® Energy model showed a 20.5% energy reduction compared to comparable ASHRAE 90.1-2004 compliant buildings. The project, which was completd in March 2009, is LEED® Gold certified under LEED® for core and shell.
