    • DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia, Broad and Locust St, Philadelphia, PA
    Join the Engineers’ Club and our partner societies at the annual Multi-Society Dinner Meeting. This is a good opportunity to kick off the holiday season by networking with engineers and other professionals that you might not normally see at your society meetings.

    Will Agate, Navy Yard Management and Development, Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) and Carmen Zappile, Vice President/Planning and Project Management, PIDC will provide an update on the development at the Navy Yard.

    Since the closure of the Yard as an operating naval base in 1997, PIDC has worked extensively to secure private investment in the facility and its myriad of old buildings devoted to military needs and the shipbuilding/refitting trades.  Today, the Yard is home to over 10,000 employees of nearly 50 companies and many of its existing buildings have been repurposed for present-day functions and needs, from shipbuilding to pharmaceuticals to apparel.  Messrs. Agate and Zappile will describe what PIDC has done to attract this investment and the challenges that remain, particularly in the upgrading and replacement of critical infrastructure.
