When Advocate Health Care embarked on building a new patient tower at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois, the decision was made to employ lean practices and an integrated project delivery approach for the very first time.
In collaboration with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Anderson Mikos Architects, Ltd., IMEG Corp, and Siemens, our Power VIP Group orchestrated the successful delivery and installation of a new, 8-ton MRI magnet through a fifth floor hospital window.
As part of an ongoing effort to increase efficiencies at O'Hare, our Aviation Group is wrapping up a complex 3-month gate adjustment project requiring modifications to accommodate 1 wide body or 2 narrow body aircrafts.
Transforming the 61st floor of the iconic Willis Tower was no small task. Beyond the typical challenges of renovating within an occupied high-rise in Chicago, this project posed the added complexity of being one of the top tourist attractions in the city.
The project, a joint venture of Austin Power Partners (Austin Commercial, Power Construction, and Ujamaa Construction), includes a 2,500,000 sf, 5-story parking facility featuring 6,900 parking spaces with a fourth floor customer lobby and rental car counters.
