Orleans Technical Institute
Jewish Employment & Vocational Service
This project relocates the adult careers training branch of the Jewish Employment & Vocational Service to a new state-of-the-art facility in Northeast Philadelphia. Two distinct wings reinforce the center's program: a 55,000 square foot workshop wing for teaching building construction trades and community classes; and a two-story wing that provides training in court reporting and health services that also houses the school’s administrative offices. A soaring glass entry welcomes visitors and brings the wings together as a single building. Within the first twelve months of the building’s occupancy, enrollment increased over 30 percent.
