Illinois healthcare construction is one area that we here at Madison Construction hold dear. Over the years, we have seen the completion of numerous healthcare facilities in Illinois and today we want to take a look at just a few of them!
The Heartland Health Center was built for Heartland International Health Centers in Chicago, Illinois in collaboration with architects Manske Dieckmann Thompson. Built in 2014, the property spans 9,000 square feet. A design-build development, the Heartland Health Center was the first LEED Platinum Community Health Center in the State of Illinois. A project we were proud to be part of, this build included the build of patient exam rooms, office space, administration space, and a small community room built to house 100 people. A major focus of this build was the energy-efficiency of the building, as such, it included geothermal heat pumps, photovoltaic panels, recycled materials, and advanced lighting controls.
The Cook County Health & Hospitals System – Oak Forest Hospital Pharmacy Build-Out was built for Cook County Bureau of Health in 2010 in collaboration with NIA Architects. Spanning 13,345 square feet, the build involved a gut-rehab renovation of the second floor of Building F. The project took what was once a floor of patient rooms and turned it into a full mail-order pharmacy facility. Completion of the project involved demolition of existing walls, ceilings, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and fire protection. The new build-out involved the addition of updated MEP/FP systems, VCT flooring, painted drywall partitions, acoustical ceilings, and furniture.
The Lawndale Christian Health Center – Ogden was built for Lawndale Christian Health Center in collaboration with McBride Kelley Baurer architects. Built in 2012, the project spans 60,000 and throughout the built Madison Construction provided pre-construction, construction and post-construction services including programming, value engineering options, budgeting, and LEED consulting and design-build MEP services. A LEED Gold project that centered on community wellness, the expanded facility is expected to allow over 300,000 medical visits and 20,000 dental visits annually.
The Lawndale Christian Health Center – Archer was another Lawndale Christian Health Center project built in Chicago in collaboration with McBride Kelley Baurer architects. Built in 2010, the 8,800 square foot facility was an adaptive reuse renovation of an existing church and pastor residence that was converted into a community health center. Madison Construction performed preconstruction services and construction services on the project. A major component of construction efforts on this project was sustainable design and as such, Innovative roof insulation systems, thermally efficient windows, sustainable interior finish materials, and use of passive solar design principals were all implemented.
The PCC Salud was built for PCC Community Wellness Centers in Chicago, Illinois in collaboration with Manske Dieckmann Thompson architects. Built in 2013, the project spans 10,800 square feet and was another adaptive reuse project this time involving a former bank building converted to function as a community wellness center. The project included the addition of new registration and checkout areas, 11 exam rooms, behavioral health rooms, and staff offices. Additionally, all new high-efficiency variable air volume HVAC system, efficient lighting, and plumbing fixtures were installed. The exterior renovation also included work on the building envelope, installation of storefronts and new roofing. Lastly, backup power systems to protect stored client data were provided. On completion, the project earned LEED Silver certification from the USGBC.
The PCC Berwyn was another project built for PCC Community Wellness Centers in Chicago, Illinois in collaboration with Manske Dieckmann Thompson architects. Built in 2011, the facility spans 18,800 square feet and was a gut rehabilitation project designed to provide a new community health center in the town of Berwyn. Funded as a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the finished project features 10 exam rooms, a full dental suite, offices, and conference areas. Madison Construction provided value-engineering preconstruction services, working with the owner, architect, and engineers to provide the most financially responsible and modern facility possible. Upon completion, PCC Berwyn received LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. This is the second PCC project the team has obtained LEED certification for. As a result of this renovation, PCC Berwyn was also granted landmark status by the City of Berwyn’s city council in 2012.
The PCC Austin was another PCC Community Wellness Centers project in Chicago, Illinois built in collaboration with Manske Dieckmann Thompson architects. Built in 2010, the facility spans 18,500 square feet and was a ground-up build designed to provide company headquarters for PCC Community Wellness. The new facility build included administrative offices, conference rooms, educational classrooms, 15 medical and dental examination rooms, a pharmacy, outpatient procedure rooms, and laboratories. Highlights of design elements include a curtain wall glazing system at the entrance and diamond-polished concrete floors throughout. Another LEED Gold certified building, PCC Austin utilizes a geothermal mechanical system to provide heat and air conditioning to the facility, a green roof, and a small wetland constructed in the center of the parking lot provides further stormwater control. Madison Construction worked with the owner and architect to value engineer the project in order to provide a more economical, cost-effective, and usable facility.
