Project Description

The Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union (PSECU) hired Quandel Construction Group to be the Construction Manager for their new Corporate Headquarters, located at the Intersection of Kohn Road &Elmerton Avenue in Harrisburg, PA. The 239,000 square foot, 3-story facility is a steel framed structure with open office space utilizing a raised access flooring system and modular office furniture for flexibility. The interior has an open atrium and stairways in common areas for ease of access between floors. Large skylights, open floor plan and window/curtainwall systems allow natural light to fill the building. The roof is a TPO system with a large roof garden for employee use. The facility is located on a 47 acre site and will accommodate 750 employees and allows for future expansion.

The new state-of-the-art headquarters includes Administration, Legal, Finance, Internal Audit, Marketing and Membership Development, Human Resources, Member Services, Credit Services, Information Technology and two mission critical data centers for PSECU’s operations. Employee support spaces include a Daycare Center, Multi-purpose Room with locker facilities, a full Kitchen and Cafeteria.

Challenge + Solution

In addition to obtaining power from the local utility company, the facility will include a Go-Generation System using gas powered turbine engines to generate electricity to service the majority of the power for the facility. While this system has higher up front installation costs, the payback is just over five years and well worth the investment. A 200-KW roof mounted solar array is also being included in the facility which could provide up to 20% of the power needs during certain periods with a payback period of just over 6 years.

We’ve had the best experience working with Quandel. We don’t have a lot of experience in building projects like this. It’s an over $70 million construction effort and having Quandel to help us through the effort of managing the relationship with the general contractor and overseeing the work that was done meant that we were really more confident that our Members' money was being spent in the proper way. I would highly recommend the work that Quandel does. We had just a tremendous relationship.
