The Industry Award went to Philadelphia Healthcare Properties with the winning project being the Knights of Pythias Greenwood Cemetery Revitalization Project. The expansion of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s Eastern Regional Medical Center into the southern portion of the historic Knights of Pythias Greenwood Cemetery, required the relocation of human remains from 9 acres of a cemetery which was established in 1869. Louis Berger Group Inc, and ACRA Member Company, was hired to relocate 2,425 human remains and affected grave markers. Philadelphia Healthcare Properties’ work included resetting 150 gravestones, reconstructing the receiving vault, main entry gate, and stone perimeter wall, removing waste, and landscaping. As the final piece of this relocation projects Philadelphia Healthcare Properties is having a monument constructed of granite tablets engraved on both sides with the names of all recorded plus those that were found but unrecorded. An additional monument for veterans is planned and all the veterans' stones will be arrayed in a separate area. In addition, Philadelphia Healthcare Properties, has conducted a significant restoration of a historic 1840s house on a portion of the property that as once owned by Benjamin Rush, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The 2010 ACRA Industry Award goes to the ACRA Member Company whose client has shown a commitment to the preservation of cultural resources above and beyond what is required by the regulations.
