Fresenius Medical Center/Doctors’ Offices

City of Philadelphia, PA

Working with their developer, Nave Newell has provided various land development services for new Fresenius dialysis medical facilities throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region. For this redevelopment project on a one-acre site in Chestnut Hill, our civil engineers assisted with site design, approvals, and development of construction documents to support the conversion of an existing building into a new dialysis center and doctors' offices.

A cost savings resulted by coordinating a custom pavement overlay design to maintain a limit of disturbance under 15,000 sf, and qualify the project for an exemption from stormwater management. With the exemption, Nave Newell was able to help the client avoid a 450-foot extension of sewer main within public right-of-way. Nave Newell also supported the client and their attorney during re-zoning of the property, with the review of ordinances and expert testimony before various boards of the Chestnut Hill Community Association and the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
