SCHRADERGROUP Celebrates Fifteen Years!
This year marks SCHRADERGROUP (SG)’s fifteenth anniversary. The business was established on April 15, 2004 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Fifteen years ago, Managing Partner David Schrader founded SG with the vision of designing for the future—for tomorrow’s workers, thinkers, and leaders. SG’s initial mission was to give back to the community and to build foundations for future generations. Since its inception, SG has succeeded in creating 21st century academic facilities for students, instructors, and staff. SG has also designed sustainable, survivable, community-oriented facilities for public safety/law enforcement personnel and mission critical personnel. SG is recognized both regionally and nationally for design that offers the highest degree of service to the user, responds to and respects both the built and natural environment, and demonstrates inspired aesthetics.
As SG continues to grow, we honor our beginnings and those who have helped shape us into what we’ve become today. In the images below, we have collected some of our most memorable accomplishments from those last fifteen years.
SG would like to thank our clients, supporters, and community for the opportunities past and present. Further, we’d like to thank these talented colleagues, past and present, who have been so critical to making these great projects a success. We look forward to the next fifteen years of improving the day-to-day experiences of students, faculty, staff, and community through innovative and dynamic design.

COS Principal/Head of School, Alison Saeger-Panik, thanked everyone who has supported their mission which will now be enhanced by the renovations to the school. Tours of the school followed the ceremonies.
The building was originally a branch of Pennsylvania State University before it was sold to COS and renovated to meet their educational needs. The facility is approximately 40,000 SF on 38 acres of land that the School owns. Currently, COS has over 300+ students from grades K-7 and plans to include grade 8 in the future.
SCHRADERGROUP (SG) wants to thank COS Board of School Directors for the opportunity to be a partner in the renovation of their unique learning facility and for Ms. Saeger-Panik for the many hours she invested to the design and construction to ensure the project’s success.
