The first quarter of 2023 was busy, and we are excited to share that Madison Concrete has been awarded several projects, including work for two Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) projects.
New Patient Tower
Rising up in University City—in the heart of CHOP’s Philadelphia campus—the New Patient Tower is a 434-foot-tall, 26-story tower that is part of the hospital’s ongoing development plan to expand services. The 1.4 million-square-foot facility will provide 480 patient beds and a range of medical services. Madison was awarded reconstruction of the east portion of the garage and foundations for the new patient tower, and our crews are anticipated to begin work in July. Watch CHOP’s video to learn more about the tower and how it will be used to improve care for patients.

Schuylkill Avenue Research Building #2
CHOP’s new Schuylkill Avenue Research Building is a 14-story tower planned adjacent to the Roberts Center for Pediatric Research. It is another step in a larger plan for the children’s hospital to develop a campus on the eastern bank of the Schuylkill River. The tower is being constructed on top of an existing parking podium and will include 10 stories of research and laboratory space, along with a second floor dedicated to lecture, conference and collaboration space. Retail space is planned for the building’s lower levels, as well as outdoor spaces to engage the surrounding community. The project broke ground October 2022. Madison will begin work during late spring. Our scope includes the retrofit of existing foundations, new foundations and elevated slabs.
