As part of its expansion plans in downtown Lancaster, Fulton Bank was looking to demolish a four-story commercial building on East King Street in the city’s central business district and construct a new 60,000-SF, three-story building to expand their corporate headquarters. The $12 million project will house a mix of retail and office spaces, with an enclosed pedestrian bridge linking it to the existing headquarters.
Prior to demolition, RETTEW performed a high-definition scan survey of the adjacent building’s interior and exterior to avoid structural impacts during demolition. As the client was committed to minimizing environmental impacts as well, we used our sustainable design experience to develop stormwater management options, including a green roof and rainwater reuse systems. We also designed and engineered the full site development plans and an attractive streetscape design. RETTEW leveraged our relationships with the City of Lancaster staff, Council, and Planning Commission to obtain the required permits and approvals on schedule and on budget.
This project benefits the Lancaster community by satisfying redevelopment goals and enhancing the City’s ongoing dynamic downtown improvement program.
