Evans Building Centennial Renaissance


The Evans Building Centennial Renaissance project is transforming Penn Dental Medicine’s historic Thomas Evans Building. This initiative is part of an ambitious, ten-year strategic plan envisioned by Dean Denis F. Kinane and the School’s leadership.

The iconic Evans Building has been home to Penn Dental Medicine for a century — February 2015 marked the 100th anniversary of its dedication. Following years of piecemeal updates, it is undergoing a $34-million reconstruction, which began in the fall of 2015 and will be completed in the spring 2017. This project is impacting all four levels of this 133,304-square-foot building, preserving beloved architectural details, while converting teaching and clinical practices spaces to 21st century functionality in line with LEED-certified guidelines.
