FRIENDS CENTER

2009 | Philadelphia, PA

Having secured $75,000 in grant funding from The Kresge Foundation, Re:Vision provided green design services for the renovation of the Friends Center, a 56,000 s.f. office building.  After a multi-day green design charrette with the Quaker community, Re:Vision’s design helped them achieve their fossil-fuel-free goal of LEED Platinum.  Among the more innovative features of the project are rainwater harvesting from a neighboring building and six vertical geothermal wells dipping nearly 1,500 feet below Philadelphia.
