Penn Medicine Radnor Awarded LEED Gold

Penn Medicine Radnor was certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council. Ballinger provided architecture, interior design, and structural engineering services for the 250,000 SF ambulatory care center.

The 4-story facility adheres to Penn Medicine’s commitment to sustainability. Over 250 new trees will be planted with the full development and the surrounding landscape includes four rain gardens and native plants designed for all four seasons. Water management elements are woven naturally throughout the grounds, where they reduce the environmental impact of run-off and create a welcoming environment for visitors and the larger community, as well as for birds, butterflies and other pollinators.

AIA AAH Committee Tours Penn Medicine Radnor

Ballinger Principal Thomas J. Parr, Jr., AIA and Associate Principal and Director of Healthcare Planning Christina Grimes, AIA, LEED AP, ACHA, EDAC led a tour of Penn Medicine Radnor for AIA Philadelphia’s Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) committee.

Penn Medicine Radnor, a 250,000 SF ambulatory care center, is designed for regeneration of both the site and human health. Floor-to-ceiling glass brings light and views inside, while landscaped gardens, walking paths and groves of na­tive plants invite occupants outdoors. Inspired by environmental stewardship and biophilia, the design embraces nature, physically and philosophically. It fosters a holistic healing experience through a soothing palette, connections to nature, and dignified accommodations for pa­tients, family and caregivers.

The tour of the completed project was a follow-up to a construction tour held for AIA AAH members in 2020.
