This is a much-needed, 200-bed Skilled Care Residence for Veterans in Chicago, IL. The building is organized into residential households of 11 to 13 private rooms, each with their own living, dining, and kitchen facilities. The second floor is reserved for Memory Support, and includes access to a green roof terrace. Great care was taken to create a truly residential environment while providing the full range of skilled care services that this population deserves.
The project has been on the boards for several years, and is currently under construction. This provided me the unique opportunity to begin the project as a team member leading the BIM documentation process, and to gradually increase my role in the project as it moved forward. I am now overseeing construction administration as the building is slated for completion in 2016.
