A new Academic Building at the Penn State Abington campus. The project is a three-story building with a mechanical penthouse located at the western edge of campus off Cloverly Lane. The building program consists of general-purpose classrooms, art classrooms, offices, conference rooms, and general building support. Two existing buildings on site will be demolished, and new utilities will be required at the site location to connect to the existing campus infrastructure.

Through an extensive prequalification process, we analyze the subcontractor's past performance, current workload, safety record and financial stability, among other selection criteria.  The prequalification processes helps LFD identify the most qualified, reputable subcontractors in the industry.

  • List of company license numbers
  • M/W/DBE information, if applicable
  • Insurance certificate with all applicable endorsements
