The Sheward Partnership provided full architectural services to the Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority (SARAA) for its Capital Improvement Program. To increase flight capacity, efficiency of operations, security and passenger service, SARAA launched an ambitious building program. Included are the extension of the existing internal loop road, expansion of the airfield apron, erection of a new Terminal Building, an intermodal transportation center and a train station to be operated by AMTRAK. All buildings are linked by climate-controlled pedestrian bridges. These improvements promise to position Harrisburg International Airport for a growing share of the air travel market.
The Sheward Partnership completed a design task in response to a request for professional design services. The new Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) is an excellent opportunity to provide an iconic design symbol that is easily distinguishable and immediately recognizable as a BWI Marshall landmark. A strong contextual solution for this new ATCT references the architectural expression of surrounding structures and forms. Strong consistent contextual themes include the expression of glass and structural steel present throughout all Terminals at BWI Marshall as well as the strong sculptural vertical rhythm of the circulation towers of the daily parking garage.
The Sheward Partnership was commissioned to design a new medical office building in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey for the Rothman Institute.

Sustainable daylighting strategies bring natural light deep into the space, while modular building technologies contributed to a short construction period. The Sheward Partnership also served as the LEED and Sustainability Consultant. The project was awarded LEED certification under the New Construction v2.2 Rating System.

The 21,000 square foot building houses state of the art Orthopedic Offices, as well as an MRI suite and four medical office suites. The EFIS, glass and metal panel exterior responds to its context by presenting two faces. A primarily commercial façade faces Roosevelt Boulevard and acts as a horizontal backdrop for the Nazareth Hospital and Rothman Institute logos. The residential Fairfield street façade is composed primarily of EFIS, designed with vertical elements to respond to the row homes across the street.
The Sheward Partnership was commissioned by the School District of Philadelphia to provide professional design services for a major renovation to the existing Jules E.
