“KMJ Consulting, Inc. is honored to be a part of the award winning Philip Street team!” – Karen Jehanian, President.

On June 5, 2019, Rich Montanez, Deputy Commissioner of Transportation, City of Philadelphia accepted a Grand Jury Award for restoration from the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia at the 2019 Preservation Achievement Awards. KMJ along with Gilmore & Associates, and Olivieri & Associates played a role in the reconstruction of historic Philip Street.

KMJ designed two curb ramps at the intersection of Philip Street/Delancey Street for this reconstruction project. Small historic streets present a number of design challenges, such as proximity of existing buildings and staircases as well as underground vaults. Close coordination and collaboration between and among the City of Philadelphia, Gilmore & Associates, and KMJ was critical for the successful implementation of this project. Kudos to Olivieri & Associates for exceeding expectations of the residents along Philip Street.

In addition to the Grand Jury Award, the reconstruction of Philip Street has also been awarded the Local Government Initiative Award from Preservation Pennsylvania to be presented at the 2019 Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Awards Ceremony being held on Wednesday, June 19th.
