We are holding a second Walk-through meeting on Monday, May 20th at 3:00 PM for anyone that may wish to bid on the project. DiBruno Bros & Co. is seeking a Design Partner for the 2300 sf interior first-floor redevelopment of the building located at 600 Spring Garden St, Philadelphia, PA. The primary use is for Special Events aimed at the Social, Corporate and Non-Profit groups in the Delaware Valley.

The successful firm will:

  • Provide conceptual design services at a fair-market price.
  • Be capable of working with our in-house General Contractor for all internal and external contracting needs.
  • Deliver a design that is a clear combination of the building’s historic features and the company’s brand and provides for multi-faceted use by clients.

We are on a relatively short timeline for this project with a goal of starting most remodeling by June 1st and completion by July 15th.

The design budget is fairly limited at $5-7K. The remodeling budget is $35-45K.
