The Reading HealthPlex for Advanced Surgical and Patient Care received a Building Berks Award from the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance. The first annual Building Berks Awards program honors outstanding companies who are helping to lift up the Reading economy through development and construction. A total of 30 building and renovation projects were nominated in 13 categories from agriculture, health and education to historic restoration, residential, retail, office and manufacturing.

In attendance to receive the award were Ballinger associate principal Thomas J. Parr, Jr., AIA and senior associate Robert P. Goss, Jr., AIA, as well as David J. Major, Mark McNash, Robert Brigham and Julie Schlappich from Tower Health, and Bob Miller from LF Driscoll.

Ballinger provided architecture, engineering and interior design services for the 476,000 SF Reading HealthPlex, which opened in 2017. It’s home to an 88,000 SF accessible roof garden, one of the largest in the US.
