T&M Presented with Project of the Year Award for Program Management of Philadelphia’s 8th & Filbert Parking Garage Restoration

June 13, 2017

PHILADELPHIA, PA – T&M Associates, a leading national consulting, environmental, engineering and construction management company, announced that it is the recipient of the Construction Management Association of America’s (CMAA) Mid-Atlantic Chapter Project of the Year Award in the Infrastructure Projects over $20 million category. T&M was honored for their program management assignment to oversee the restoration of Philadelphia Parking Authority’s (PPA) 8th & Filbert Parking Garage. The award was presented at the CMAA’s 2017 Construction Management Project Achievement Awards ceremony held at the New Jersey Aquarium in Camden on June 6th. The ceremony celebrated outstanding achievement in the practice of construction management.

Through the 8th & Filbert Parking Garage Restoration project, the PPA sought to transform the original 1960s vintage structure into a more prominent and worthy gateway into Philadelphia’s Center City. The project would also set the tone for future redevelopment planned to revitalize the Market East section of the city. T&M’s Program Management/Construction Management (PM/CM) group was responsible for overseeing the entire design and construction process, including team members WRT Architects, O’Donnell & Naccarato and Wick Fisher White. This included oversight of a complex project delivery approach with multiple phases, 16 prime contracts, ongoing public access and continuous tenant occupancy throughout the construction phase.

Today, this highly-visible and functional centerpiece project offers a more civic-minded structure with significant aesthetic renovations, improved access to various local multi-modal transit hubs, several green features to improve stormwater management, refurbished retail and commercial spaces, and street furnishings that provide a more welcoming walkway toward Center City.

“We were honored to work alongside a world-class team of designers and contractors to help realize the PPA’s vision for a more distinguished gateway into Philadelphia’s Center City,” said Michael Regan, CCM, T&M’s Vice President and PM/CM Practice Leader. “Receiving this Project of the Year award from the CMAA Mid-Atlantic Chapter is further testament to the commitment of our Philadelphia team to improve quality of life and create sustainable value for the clients and communities we serve. We applaud them on receiving this well-deserved recognition.”
