The University awarded a contract for construction services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which public health or safety was threatened.
The south tower of the Neuropsychiatric Institute (NPI) building located at 912 S. Wood Street, Chicago, IL comprises 11 stories, 8 of which services patients. The tower is serviced by only two elevators that are nearing the end of their useful life and UIC was developing plans to modernize them. One elevator had a complete failure that cannot be repaired and the second elevator is rapidly deteriorating. It requires constant maintenance to remain operational but suffers periodic outages. The lack of dependable, operable elevators creates a safety issue for patients. After The Joint Commission received a complaint from a disabled patient, UIC was given 60 days to demonstrate a plan for reinstating reliable elevator service.
