Excellence in Construction

In a triumph that goes beyond bricks and mortar, we are thrilled to announce the prestigious Excellence in Construction Award bestowed upon our team for the construction of Penn State Health Children's Lancaster Pediatric Center, a state-of-the-art pediatric facility. This recognition is not just a testament to our construction prowess; it is a celebration of our collective dedication to building a brighter future for the youngest members of our community.

From the very beginning, our mission was clear—to create a haven of healing and hope for children facing medical challenges. The Excellence in Construction Award honors not only the architectural brilliance and structural integrity of this pediatric facility but also the compassion and vision that went into its creation. Every corner of Penn State Health Children's Lancaster Pediatric Center was designed and built with the well-being of young patients in mind, providing a nurturing environment that supports both physical and emotional healing.

Receiving this esteemed award motivates us to continue pushing boundaries in construction, with a commitment to excellence that extends far beyond industry standards. As we stand on the podium of achievement, we are reminded that our work is not just about constructing buildings; it's about constructing a future filled with hope, resilience, and building better communities, together.

From the Ground Up

Landis Place on King is an innovative project in the heart of Lancaster City. It is a mixed-use building with 79 apartments, 41 interior parking spaces, and commercial space. It is located at 239 West King Street. Landis Place on King was born out of a desire to create abundant choices, foster increased community, and provide middle market and lower income housing for adults age 55+. The diverse and flourishing downtown neighborhood of West King Street has embraced our vision for an inclusive community housing option. Adding a community like this is another step in keeping the Central Business District vibrant and growing. https://www.landisplace.org/ Landis Place on King is one part of Landis Communities who provides Comforting Live-at-Home Services and Feel-at-Home Communities® https://www.landiscommunities.org/

HCC is honored to have been involved with this project and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Landis Communities. Partnerships such as this allow us to further our mission of building better communities, together.
