Alexander Building Construction Co. Completes Student Enrichment Center at Penn State's Harrisburg Campus

Harrisburg, PA, August 29, 2016 . . . Alexander Building Construction Co., part of The Butz Family of Companies, recently completed the new Student Enrichment Center building at Penn State Harrisburg.

Located in the heart of the campus, the $30 million, 70,000 square-foot building houses many of the college's student activities and organizations.

"This project benefited greatly from a construction management at-risk delivery method," said J. Douglas Wenger, Central Region Project Manager for Penn State. "Alexander was engaged early in design and developed a strategy of phased bidding and construction that allowed us to achieve our desired schedule for the project. We'd also like to recognize the design team and the subcontractors for a job well-done."

Features of the project include:

  • 370-seat auditorium
  • Bookstore
  • Spiritual Center
  • Collaboration rooms for student organizations
  • Food services with café amenities
  • Meeting rooms for student organizations
  • Game room and outdoor gathering spaces
  • Office space for Division of Undergraduate Studies

The project took 19 months to complete. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday, August 23rd to commemorate the project's completion.

"We are extremely proud to have been the CM on this important project for Penn State Harrisburg," said Rick Seitz, President of Alexander Building Construction Co. "It was a collaborative, team effort and all team members worked together to meet the project goals."
