University of Pennsylvania | FMC Tower - Philadelphia, PA

The University of Pennsylvania is a private Ivy League research university located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

University of Pennsylvania relocated four departments and 350 employees into the newly constructed FMC Tower in West Philadelphia. Their ability to connect their four departments under one roof was beneficial to increasing their efficiency and productivity. Together, we developed furniture typicals for each user group focused on their day to day needs and program requirements, incorporating height adjustable workstations, ergonomic seating and work tools, and collaboration spaces to provide a variety of settings for all employees.
