Project Profile

The Pennington School, Old Main/Meckler Library/Stainton Hall

This project was a multi-phase renovation that included work in the school’s oldest, most historic building that dates back to the 1800s – the Old Main Building. The level of careful coordination and attention to detail was fitting for the Adams-Bickel team who executed according to plan and with high quality workmanship. The buildings and spaces were meticulously renovated with high-end, carefully curated finishes.

Ultimately, the work successfully yielded a more functional and modern environment while still preserving the historic character and “feel” of the buildings.

Opening Quote

I greatly appreciated AdamsBickel's work in constructing two renovation projects simultaneously on the Swarthmore College campus.  Their procurement was thorough - getting good subcontractors and competitive pricing.  I appreciated their superintendent's anticipation of upcoming tasks and courtesy in communicating with staff working adjacent to the construction.
