Project Spotlight

Dollar Bank Center Rooftop

Dollar Bank hired MBM and Strada to design and build their new Headquarters at 20 Stanwix Street. After completing the five-floor office space fit-out, our team started on the private indoor/outdoor rooftop space that features 360-degree views of downtown Pittsburgh. Over 60 tons of structural steel was craned up to the roof and installed on the 21st floor, to create over 3,500 SF of indoor and 2,600 SF of exterior deck space. The indoor space features floor to ceiling glass exterior walls for a more open feel. A new elevator and elevator shaft were constructed to allow easier access. The rooftop features space for employees to work, gather with colleagues, and take a break for personal wellbeing.

MBM Happenings

Pars for Postpartum Depression Golf Outing

On July 31st MBM was honored to participate in the 6th Annual Pars for Postpartum Depression Golf Outing at Edgewood Country Club. The weather was perfect and the event was another success. Postpartum Depression (PPD) and Postpartum Anxiety (PPA) are very common during motherhood and we are happy to support this group who continues to offer more resources to those experiencing PPD/ PPA. Since the Golf Outing started 6 years ago, the event has raised over $222,000!

What has your experience been like working with MBM on Dollar Bank Center and the rooftop? 

MBM was great to work with! Open communication and a collaborative approach made the project run smoothly and we got over the inevitable hurdles quickly. 

What was the biggest challenge with the rooftop project? 

Fitting all of the structure and systems into the space that was limited in height by the existing penthouse was a challenging jigsaw puzzle, but it ended up creating one of my favorite aspects of the space; the low ceilings at the entrance to the space really set the stage for the dramatic views that you get once you enter into the double height glass box.  

Do you have a favorite feature of the Dollar Bank Center rooftop? 

The views are really stunning and the space makes the most of them! 

Tell us three things most people don’t know about you...

I grew up in the countryside surrounded by chickens and fields, and spent much of my time playing in "the crick". I lived in Florence, Italy for a total of year through my college studies. I'm an avid reader (at 90 books for the year so far).
