Buch Construction’s buildout of a 7,888 SF Capital One Café, in the upscale Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia, was completed in January 2017. It’s the latest of several Cafe spaces that Capital One has opened around the country, where people are encouraged to hang out, charge their devices, and enjoy coffee, tea and pastries—in addition to doing their banking. You can see Buch’s work here on the Ellen DeGeneres show, which visited the impressive Philadelphia branch last month for a special segment with Jon Dorenbos of the Philadelphia Eagles.X

On November 16, Buch Construction Project Manager Jeff Williford discussed one of the company’s current projects, a CHP Plant (Combined Heat and Power), at a presentation attended by industry experts from Lockheed Martin, AlbanCAT, local utility companies, and several government agencies. The event was hosted by eSai LLC, led by founder/principal Dr. Nandini Mouli. ESai is a leader in comprehensive solutions to energy management and carbon footprint concerns.
The expedited six-month project (initially planned for a year) consisted of installing a 2.5 MW AlbanCAT 3500 Series generator on the campus of MedImmune, the region’s largest biotech company. The project scope included underground utilities, ground up steel and cast-in-place structure, and mechanical and electrical tie-ins. Start-up took place on 11/19/2016. The system is currently going through an extensive commissioning process prior to client turnover.
“We are thrilled to be a part of such a cutting-edge project with a spectacular project team,” said Mike Buch, Senior Vice President. “And we are glad to share our knowledge with others in the field.”

BUCH began moving dirt on the 6-acre site where Nordstrom Rack will be built at Woodmore Towne Centre. The 40,000 SF building will be constructed for developer Petrie Richardson Ventures and was designed by RARE Design Studios. Completion is scheduled for April 2017.
Buch Construction has been a proud sponsor of Rebuilding Together Howard County since 2013. As a construction company, Buch provides a unique skill set in large home repair projects and provides sub contractors and skilled volunteers to complete the job.
