Illinois CancerCare Addition
This project includes a 23,000 SF building addition that accommodates expanded treatment research and administration.
The addition allows for expansion and remodeling of patient areas elsewhere in the existing 70,000 SF building including additional imaging with a new PET CT, enlarged lab and blood draw facilities, and a new exam room suite to allow group consultation and Gyn-Onc. The project included lobby remodeling and an additional waiting area to improve patient flow and allow for growth.
The building addition is primarily visible from Route 6 and the exterior design uses this aspect to present a curving façade that increases the overall visibility and recognition of the facility. The building is constructed of insulated precast panels colored to maintain the look of the original building; as well as matching the materials of the storefront, windows, and metals panels. The addition to the entry/lobby includes storefront glazing that matches the existing. The project includes adding 43 parking spaces for staff parking, at the east of the existing building.
