The Diagnostic Imaging Center involved the remodeling of an existing retail building. A CT Scan, MRI, Dexascan and several Ultrasound rooms were included in the new work.
Process cooling, new rooftop air conditioning units, a new electrical service were all designed into the new space.
Alexian Brothers Medical Center Mt. Prospect, IL
The medical office building was designed as a shell and core. All mechanical and electrical systems were installed within the shell of this with future tenants in mind. The building and its systems were designed to support diagnostic imaging, laboratories, therapy and clinical spaces.
Fox Valley Ortho Surgicenter Geneva, IL
This project consisted of an extensive, multi-phased remodeling and expansion of the existing orthopaedic surgicenter. The design of this project featured the following:
Expansion from two to four operating rooms
Completely new and enlarged decontamination and sterilization
Expansion of Pre-Op and Post-Op support facilities
New expanded waiting, reception and consultation areas
Enlarged staff locker rooms
New supply receiving area and elevator to second floor surgical storage and distribution area
The challenge for Fox Valley was keeping the two existing operating rooms open while adding two more operating rooms adjacent to them, installing new HVAC systems, medical gases and emergency power without closing the facility. This was accomplished by having seven phases of construction to keep the facility completely operational throughout the renovation.
Fox Valley Orthopedic Institute Geneva, IL
The Fox Valley project involved the remodeling of an existing industrial building and the remodeling of an existing ambulatory surgery building. The industrial site was designed to house an MRI, exam rooms, office spaces and physical therapy.
The existing ambulatory surgery was reconfigured to include two new operating rooms, a new central sterile area, recovery bays and nursing stations.
The ambulatory surgery work required a new emergency generator, new air handling equipment, new medical gas manifolds and distribution piping. The outpatient clinic required all new services for the change in building usage.
Heartland Blood Center Tinley Park, IL
This new facility for Heartland Blood Centers of Aurora serves as the headquarters for their Eastern Division in Tinley Park. The building houses departments for Blood Collection, Mobile Packing, Distribution, Component Laboratory, Administration, Recruitment and support spaces. It is organized around a central atrium with clerestory windows that bring natural light into donor and staff areas.
Vehicular circulation on the site clearly separates donor traffic from staff traffic. A porte cochere at the main front entrance shelters donors from inclement weather while a two-bay garage for loading and unloading blood drive vehicles protects staff at the service entrance.
Orland Park Surgical Center Orland Park, IL
The project was an addition to an existing surgical center in Orland Park. The new work included two new operating rooms, new recovery beds, a new central sterile area and patient interview rooms.
The addition required two new rooftop air handling units, new medical gas manifolds and a new vacuum pump. The remaining utilities were extended from existing systems within the original building.

Provena / Madison Medical Plaza Prov. St. Joseph - Joliet, IL
The Madison Medical Plaza is a three story facility on the campus of the Provena St. Joseph Medical Center. The project was completed in phases. The first phase was the construction of the base building with all of the major services included for future tenant occupancy. Included in the core work were an emergency generator, building automation system, an air handling system with humidification and final filters.
The second phase was the construction of the Surgical Center. The Surgical Center contains three operating rooms, two endoscopy rooms, central sterile, recovery bays and exam spaces. As a part of the Surgical Center work medical gas manifolds, a vacuum pump, a reverse osmosis water system and a pressure booster system for the sterilizing system were installed.
The third phase of the project was the completion of the tenant spaces. That work is ongoing, but to date the following tenants have been added to the building: a wound care clinic, with a hyperbaric chamber, a pharmacy, a pain center, a plastic surgeon and a cardiovascular clinic.
