A recent $5 million tax-credit allocation pushes plans for a new regional headquarters to the next stage: The Salvation Army Harrisburg Capital City Region will be breaking ground this year on their new Harrisburg facility. Construction of the 38,700-square-foot building—which is more than double the size of the current building—is expected to take about a year.
This new facility will include a service and worship center; commercial kitchen; food pantry; family services suite; a client reception and information center; and an education wing featuring classrooms, a nutrition education kitchen, gymnasium, work stations, and private offices.
The larger space will allow The Salvation Army to run a more efficient program for the 20,000 people it serves in Cumberland, Dauphin, and Perry Counties. Isett was responsible for providing the MEP design, working alongside Murray Associates Architects. Pyramid Construction Services Inc. will be overseeing the construction.
