January 2018 News
F&M Arts Building
Franklin & Marshall College is proposing a new Visual Arts Center on the south side of the main campus, replacing the existing Herman Arts Building which was constructed in the 1970’s. The proposed building will be situated between the North Museum and Buchanan Park on Buchanan Avenue and will be visible from Buchanan Avenue, College Avenue as well as Buchanan Park. The unique architectural design elevates the building into the trees and curves around the existing tree canopy. Proposed improvements include an elevated walkway, a new central walkway for connection to the main campus system, leading to Old Main and a reflecting pool. New utilities have also been designed to serve the building including stormwater conveyance and water quality facilities to reduce runoff into the City of Lancaster’s combined sewer system. Final approvals are expected in early 2018 and it is anticipated the project will be completed by the end of Summer 2019.

There are a number of services we can now provide including: well siting and aquifer testing, water supply development and protection, karst terrain and sinkhole evaluation, contaminant fate and transport, regulatory compliance and permitting as well as Phase I Environmental Assessment.
