Centre County Commissioners New Human Services Center

Project Name

Centre County Human Services Center


Bellefonte, PA

Project Description

Based on the Quandel Construction’s recommendation, the Centre County Commissioners chose to renovate the former Willow Bank Building in Bellefonte for use as the Centre County Human Services Center rather than construct a new facility. The five-story Human Services Center now houses County human services agencies and other County offices. Quandel’s work as Construction Manager on the Human Services Center involved overseeing the removal of asbestos, the gutting of the facility’s interior, the installation of new mechanical and electrical systems, and the construction of a new facility entrance. Additional project components included the design of new office space, the replacement of facility windows, and repairs to the building’s masonry exterior.

The Centre County Commissioners chose Quandel to work on our new Human Services Center because we knew Quandel could prepare feasibility studies on the project in addition to serving as Construction Manager. The project would not have gotten off the ground or been completed ahead of schedule and under budget without the involvement of Quandel. The Center County Commissioners were impressed with the fact that Quandel’s commitment to our needs came ahead of everything else. The caliber of Quandel’s personnel, from their project supervisor to their marketing personnel, is excellent. We have never worked with a firm that excelled in all areas of responsibility. We received maximum cooperation and teamwork from Quandel.
