Description of Project
The project consists of the preparation of a feasibility study for the redevelopment and expansion of the existing College of Nursing Building on the University of Illinois at Chicago Campus. The work will be primarily confined to the basement through sixth floor within the existing building, which includes approximately 100,000 gross square feet and the planning for building expansion as deemed appropriate.

The following work is included:

  • Redesign the building entrance/lobby to improve quality of life and enhance movement into and through the building.
  • Validate College of Nursing preliminary program and develop a master plan including cost estimates to meet future needs.
  • Prepare a Preliminary Space Analysis/Utilization/Reassessment Plan
  • Prepare a code analysis, which identifies necessary code upgrades based on the current and proposed uses.
  • Prepare a master program for the redefinition of the facility which includes the following:
  • Identify deficiencies in the existing HVAC system along with potential revisions and/or repairs to maintain proper space temperature control and to improve indoor air quality.
  • Analyze other building systems as appropriate.
  • Incorporate reclaimed space from an existing escalator into the program.
  • Planning to remodel/expand classroom and research laboratory areas.
