Modern Steel Construction, published by the American Institute of Steel Construction, features the Wistar Institute’s Robert and Penny Fox Tower on its cover. Associate Principal Edward J. Zinski wrote an article for the December issue describing Ballinger’s unique solutions for this complex urban project.
The Robert and Penny Fox Tower satisfies the Institute’s need for state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research space and a stronger, more unified visual identity.
The project comprises a seven-story research tower, a new entrance leading to a public Forum, and a central utility plant. In addition to the design and engineering of the research building, Ballinger provided existing facility assessment, master planning, and programming to determine the best solution for Wistar.
