M.C. Dean was recently awarded an electrical design-assist contract by the Penn State University (PSU) College of Medicine for the new Hershey Innovation Pavilion. The project is slated for completion in December 2022, and will consist of research space dedicated to developing cures for pediatric cancers.

We will provide electrical, fire alarm, communications, and security systems and infrastructure, and will use modular design and manufacturing to minimize the impact on the adjacent hospital and cancer centers.

“It is always meaningful to work on projects for hospitals, especially for pediatrics,” said Mike Keatley, senior vice president of Electrical Systems. “We are enabling critical resources to do their jobs more efficiently, without concerns of power or communication disruptions.”

According to Penn State News, “The Innovation Pavilion will be one of the most significant construction projects on campus since the College of Medicine opened in 1966. Upon completion, the building will unite the College of Medicine’s robust research initiatives and learning spaces in an advanced building that will bolster modern scientific discovery and teaching.”

M.C. Dean has worked closely with PSU on multiple projects since 2015, including the chemical and bioengineering building at University Park.
