Spring Township Municipal Building – Addition and Alterations
Location: Spring Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania.
Muhlenberg Greene Architects prepared a feasibility study to review the Spring Township municipal departments’ current and projected needs and to analyze the functions and interaction of the various operations. The Master Plan study resulted in a project which included expanding the existing building to create a new meeting room for public gatherings and municipal functions, as well as creating additional office space. The project also included renovating the existing office areas with a focus on creating flexible work spaces for the various departments, enabling them to adapt to future changes. The alterations were designed to complement the existing facade and bring daylight into the building beyond the perimeter offices, which had previously limited the natural lighting in the building. Construction activities were carefully phased to allow the Township to maintain its operations.
