The new Pennsylvania State Emergency Operations Center

Located in Susquehanna Township, the SEOC provides dedicated emergency services and disaster assistance for the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, with the ability to sustain uninterrupted operations during activations. It is designed to be “the last building standing” in the event of a natural or man-made disaster, and must successfully house the agencies and the functions responsible for serving and protecting the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania under any circumstances.

Schradergroup Designer Participates in Mentoring Program

Schradergroup Designer, Monique McCray, Assoc AIA, LEED AP, CDT, made a splash in the life of potential future designers this year by participating in the ACE Mentor Program, which provided a 7-week architecture exploration for rising 9th and 10th graders.  The ACE Mentor Program’s mission is to engage, enlighten and encourage high school students to pursue careers in architecture, engineering and construction through mentorship.   Monique participated as a design professional volunteer in the program, which involved the design of a student café located in Philadelphia University.

Monique remarked, “I’m always excited to volunteer time in a program like ACE, which provides a valuable and fun opportunity for students to learn about architecture, construction and engineering.  Students often have little to no knowledge regarding these specific career paths. Through the student café summer project, students were able to engage directly with design professionals and learn about the design process.”
