The Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple is rising and changing the city’s skyline nearly three years after ground was broken in the historic downtown area.
The edifice is framed to its full height, and windows and a temporary roof are being installed. Block encases it all, and a granite veneer will be bolted on starting in late fall. Once the building is enclosed, work will move forward on the interior.
Project manager Tom Stepanko of L.F. Driscoll, the Philadelphia company teaming with Big D Construction from Utah in the joint venture, is enjoying the work, his first time on this type of project.
