We’ve been working hard for Chicago since 1959. While we specialize in masonry, we have lately been expanding our team of ALL Construction experts. This week, we’re showcasing our 2016 job for Malcolm X College.
This two-year City College is located on the West Side of Chicago. Malcolm X College partners with many healthcare companies — like Walgreens, Northwestern Medicine, and many Chicagoland hospitals and clinics — to prepare their students for real-world professional positions. So we were honored to be able to work on their new School of Health Sciences building.
We designed this important structure to last.
Solid masonry work provides the foundation.
We wanted this building to be energy-efficient without compromising functionality. A primarily brick and concrete exterior envelope provides efficient and economical support to the important education going on inside.
Our goal with this ALL Construction project?
We had to plan a structure that would require minimal maintenance and restoration down the road. While we’re big believers in restoration, this was simply an entirely new structure. Unless there’s a real need, we want to help minimize the “just tear it down” way of thinking.
So, what’s next?
