WYEP is a non-profit radio station that chose Sota Construction Services early in the design process. This was done to ensure that this fast track project would be built as green as possible and to meet the tight schedule and budget. The challenges of the site required deconstruction of existing buildings, 75' deep piles, and close coordination on this dense urban site. Sota worked with dggp Architects (now FortyEighty Architecture) and Steven Winter Associates to evolve a thermal envelope that was highly efficient yet met the budget.

This women's shelter provides space for ten families, plus working space for the administration staff. The scope of work included removal of most of the original building while preserving the facade, construction of a new building behind the preserved facade, and a new construction addition to the left side of the building.

Because this building is considered to be among Pittsburgh's most historically significant, the selective demolition, foundation underpinning, and general construction were sequenced with care, in order to preserve the original facade.

This vintage 1854 church was abandoned for over 15 years and had suffered severe water damage to both its decorated interior finishes and its exterior masonry. An additional challenge was modernizing the mechanical and electrical systems so that this former church could be used as a banquet and business meeting facility.

Sota Construction Services was selected as part of the team early in the design development of this project.
