Swing Office Space

For the duration of the building’s renovation, we have arranged a swing office space to be available. If you are a graduate student that works on the floor and need temporary dry office space during your lab’s renovation, please email Dave Stepelevich (David.stepelevich@hbsinc.com) and Joanne Titcomb (jtitcomb@seas.upenn.edu) as soon as possible. Please include your email and what lab you’re associated with and they will be in touch to assign a desk to you.

Penn's Century Bond Program

construction of the LRSM building

Construction of the LRSM started in 1962.

Penn's Century Bond program is funded by a $300M bond issued in spring 2012 that has a 100-year term. Of that total, $200M is directed towards financing upgrades in lighting and HVAC systems that support energy efficiency and reduce deferred maintenance. The program will help Penn fulfill its goal of reducing the institution's carbon footprint as outlined in its Climate Action Plan. Of the $200M directed towards energy efficiency upgrades and deferred maintenance, approximately $8.5M has been invested in energy efficient lighting upgrades and $190M is planned for HVAC improvements. The remaining funds will be used for other strategic priority projects.

The utility cost savings realized through lighting upgrades and HVAC upgrades will be used to offset debt service and the principal repayment of the HVAC projects will be used to fund future projects.
