Project Description

The Capital Systems Renewal Program will consist of approximately 80 projects over the next three to five years across the Penn State University Park campus, aimed at improving various building systems, including Masonry repairs, Roof replacements, Electrical switchgear renewals, Window replacements, and Elevator modernizations. 

Each building system upgrade project may also consist of various supplemental bid packages, including but not limited to, Abatement, General Trades, Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, etc. Work is anticipated to occur across campus on multiple buildings simultaneously.
