Keeping Up with Construction

Once it was customary for construction sites to be surrounded with plywood walls, some punctuated with peepholes waggishly designated for "key-holers." But Sansom Common is being built out in the open, with only a chain-link fence surrounding the site at 36th and Walnut. The work still goes on the hard way (see the Compass Feature "Mud, Sweat and Gear"on page 13), but people can now keep track of this and other construction projects without leaving their desks. Facilities Management posts drawings and photographs at By clicking on a map, browsers can see floor plans of the coming Inn at Penn, for example, and follow the progress of BRB II, the Perelman Quad, and the Roy and Diana Vagelos Laboratories for Advanced Science and Technology. The site also records the fire that tragically suspended work on the Charles Addams House.
