Perkiomen X-Day: Career Project Highlights

MCTIGUE Architecture on September 23, 2022
In 2020, Perkiomen, a preparatory school north of Philadelphia, PA, began offering weekly, virtual “X-period” classes. Known as “X-Day”,  the classes bring together an array of speakers— some alumni and some community friends—to share their experiences and insights into their professional work. A graduate from 1976, Drew Pedrick was honored to participate. 

In this excerpt, Drew is asked to describe the project he was most passionate about in his career. He shares that there are three significant projects to consider - a building he worked on in the 1980’s that his grandfather’s firm designed in the 30s; the Kai Tak cruise terminal in Hong Kong, a mega facility for the largest ships on the planet; and finally, his first project when he moved to Los Angeles in 2006, the Los Angeles Police Headquarters.

About Drew Pedrick
At an early age, Drew understood his passions were to design buildings and spaces and do so with care for the planet. Drew began his architecture career as a lighting designer, then worked in the construction phase of architecture, gaining detailed, and practical knowledge. His work quickly grew to include design phases, ultimately leading design, leading teams, and establishing client relations. Today Drew finds his work coming equally from his many long-standing relationships and the new ones he and his team build.
