Project Description

Quandel provided construction management services for the Township of Derry Municipal Complex in Hershey, PA. The campus-like project involved a hybrid of new construction and adaptive renovations to existing Milton Hershey School structures.

An existing barn was renovated into the new Township Tax Office, while two former student houses were transformed into the Township Administration building and Police building. The new Police building features new holding cells, a state-of-the-art command center, and Emergency Management Room that will be used as the Township Command Center during an emergency.

To create a more efficient, user-friendly facility, all buildings were connected by elevated walkways, including the existing Springdale and Union buildings.

My sincere appreciation goes to Quandel for making our Municipal Complex a reality. Being such a large and complex project, it wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of Quandel’s Project Manager. Immersed in all elements, he addressed the challenges we faced to my complete satisfaction and represented Quandel in the most professional manner. It was surprising and absolutely refreshing to see their very positive work ethic.
