Journey’s Way Activity Center


Philadelphia, PA

The Journey’s Way Activity Center is the second major project Flatiron Building Company has completed for Intercommunity Action. This project included the renovation of an 1890 church structure, a 1920, 2-story brick warehouse and a 1950’s classroom building into a 14,000 square foot senior center.

The project scope included: a commercial kitchen, doctor’s office, activities areas, gym, computer room, staff offices, canopies, structural repairs and a ADA connecting link between buildings.

The installation of a new elevator and ADA ramps met handicap accessible requirements. A new 4 pipe fan coil HVAC system and a new electrical system were installed throughout the existing structures which presented significant challenges.

Coordination with the neighborhood group was essential to ensure that the local residents experienced minimal disruptions.


“Owning and operating an Architecture firm in Philadelphia since 1989, I have had the pleasure to do business with Flatiron Building Company numerous times. When working with Flatiron I have complete trust into their abilities. Flatiron’s communication, attention to detail, and follow through are outstanding. I am pleased to give Flatiron Building Company my highest of recommendations.”
