ATMI Precast Helps to Bring Heros Home
Developed by the State of Illinois Capital Development Board, the Illinois Veterans Home is located within the City of Chicago on the Northwest Side. Completed this summer, the complex consists of two five-story residential towers with a combination of precast concrete, steel, and curtain wall glass connecting link building. In addition to the residential aspect, the complex includes complete medical facilities, offices, recreation space, and physical therapy areas.
The complex is a complete precast structure with load bearing architectural exterior panels, interior demising and shaft walls, and hollowcore plank flooring and roof. The exterior panels consisted of an architectural precast concrete mix with light blast, embedded thin brick, and larger thin brick tiles. Also, a main feature includes architectural round column for a cantilevered effect.
ATMI Precast was happy to work with McHugh Construction as the owners representative, IHC as the General Contractor, and Harley Ellis Deveraux as the design architect. Check out more photos of this complex.
