Philly-based contractor chosen for Harrisburg federal courthouse work
The U.S. General Services Administration has selected Philadelphia-based USA Environmental Management Inc. to do site demolition and lot consolidation work for the planned federal courthouse in Harrisburg.
The courthouse is to be built on the northeast corner of Sixth and Reily streets in Midtown. In 2004, Congress allocated $26 million for site acquisition and design of the project, which calls for a 265,000-square-foot courthouse on one new property bounded by Reily, Sixth, Boyd, Wallace, Harris and Seventh streets.
There has been no word on when additional funds for the project will be allocated. The total project was previously estimated to cost $144 million.
This site work is expected to be completed by Sept. 15, according to the GSA.
