PROJECT Overview

Redevelopment of a former industrial site in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood, the TechMill 41 offers office and highly unique office/lab space. Located adjacent to the 40th Street bridge, TechMill 41 enjoys access to major highways and provides ample parking for tenants.

PVE was engaged to address the civil engineering and site design for this project, including attaining required development permits. Several challenges were overcome through the design of the site including stormwater management of the environmentally impacted site, and the connection to the existing sewer infrastructure in this area of the City, and operations. Further, due to the aging infrastructure within 40th Street, significant coordination with the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority was required to ensure adequate water and sewer services the site, resulting in major upgrades to PWSA’s infrastructure.

In addition to the office building, the project is adjacent to Bay 41, an outdoor gathering and connective space which serves as an amenity to TechMill tenants, residents of the Foundry at 41st and the surrounding community. Bay 41 is the skeletal remains of a crane bay housed in the former industrial facility. The skin was removed to expose the steel framing which arches over the formerly vacated 41st Street. Bay 41 is to receive accent lighting and event lighting providing community connectivity and  community gathering space.Our services typically included:
