Multi-Society Meeting: Infrastructure Challenges in Transforming the Navy Yard from Military Use to a Thriving Business Center

10/30/14

Join the Engineers’ Club and our partner societies at the annual Multi-Society Dinner Meeting on December 8. This is a good opportunity to kick off the holiday season by networking with engineers and other professionals that you might not normally see at the typical society meeting.

PROGRAM
Will Agate, Senior Vice President, Navy Yard Management and Development, Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC)
Carmen Zappile, Vice President/Planning and Project Management, PIDC

Since the closure of the Yard as an operating naval base in 1997, PIDC has worked extensively to secure private investment in the facility and its myriad of old buildings devoted to military needs and the shipbuilding/refitting trades. Today, the Yard is home to over 10,000 employees of nearly 50 companies and many of its existing buildings have been repurposed for present-day functions and needs, from shipbuilding to pharmaceuticals to apparel. Messrs. Agate and Zappile will describe what PIDC has done to attract this investment and the challenges that remain, particularly in the upgrading and replacement of critical infrastructure.

Once again, Construction Management Association of America will be coordinating a Toys for Tots collection. Bring an UNWRAPPED toy to brighten a child’s holiday.
