The Wistar Institute, Philadelphia, PA
The Wistar Institute is home to an international leading biomedical center focused on cancer research and vaccine development. In 2011, the building underwent the renovation of its 18,950sf vivarium facility and began construction of the new seven-story, 89,700sf research tower. As construction of the new space could not disrupt service to neighboring buildings, Dougherty Electric used AutoCAD to coordinate with other trades, plan for complex installations, and mitigate issues that would previously have only come up in the field. The use of AutoCAD throughout planning and execution of complex projects allows Dougherty to stay ahead of the curve in a dynamic and fast moving industry.
