Spotlight:  Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House Project

Watchdog has many exciting projects currently underway, for many reasons, the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House project is truly something special. Firstly, it is an extremely complex development. Essentially, it is an 8 story out of the ground construction project located on a very tight urban site at 39th and Chestnut Street. The construction of the tower involves careful coordination of shared easements with neighboring buildings.  The multi-phased project is in the early stages of pre-construction.

Site preparations are underway. The existing Mansion building is at the back left.

More importantly, Watchdog’s project managers are pouring their hard work and dedication into this project, because it is for such a worthwhile client and cause. The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of critically ill children by providing a home for families while children are undergoing treatment. The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House currently has 40 rooms and various amenities including family rooms, an onsite dining hall, playrooms, outdoor space, onsite parking and more. Not only does PRMH provide lodging for families, it provides a community of support and comfort.

The expansion will add almost 100 rooms to the current Ronald McDonald House, which will help PRMH better suit the demand. The current site includes “The Mansion” building and the attached US Healthcare center. Both of these buildings will remain intact and the tower will surround and attach to the existing structures. We are thrilled to be part of such an exciting, challenging and meaningful project.
