Urban Outfitters Headquarters

Urban Outfitters Headquarters

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

When fashion retailer Urban Outfitters outgrew its former headquarters, the company needed a new facility that could support its expectations of doubling its business within five years. Having selected an existing structure at the Philadelphia Naval Yard to repurpose, Urban Outfitters began renovating immediately upon signing the deal. Faced with the need to compress schedules and reduce project calendar days, the contractor chose Victaulic piping systems for their speed, reliability and flexibility as well as Victaulic project management services such as targeted on site delivery and bagged and tagged material to reduce jobsite handling. Through this combination of efficient products and services, Victaulic contributed significantly to the meeting of a highly accelerated renovation schedule. The center piece of the new Urban Outfitters headquarters campus is a glass enclosed mechanical room for heating and cooling systems. The mechanical room features many innovative Victaulic products including the Advanced Groove System (AGSā„¢) for large diameter piping systems.
