Based in West Philadelphia, the University City Science Center is a community of partners committed to technology-based economic development in the greater Philadelphia region. The latest development by Wexford Science + Technology is a 13-story Class A mixed-use laboratory and office building located at 3737 Market Street.
The building has a steel frame and composite metal deck structural system. The exterior wall is a combination of insulated glass panels with crystal grey tinting in an aluminum-framed curtain wall with spandrel panels. The ground floor has granite stone veneer in keeping with the adjacent buildings. The roof is an Energy Star thermoplastic with a modular green roof system. The building has achieved LEED Gold certification.
“When demand for space in the project exceeded our expectations and we made the decision to add two floors to the building well into construction, we relied on INTECH’s commitment that they could complete the tenant spaces and deliver the project with no change to the schedule. We knew INTECH would provide the leadership, foresight, guidance, and detailed planning necessary to meet our financial objectives without putting our tenant obligations at risk.”Joseph A.
