ATMI Precast Wins 2016 PCI Design Award
ATMI Wins 2016 PCI Design Award: Woodlawn Senior Housing Wins “Best Retirement/Assisted Living” and “Best All Precast”
ATMI Precast is the proud recipient of the “Best Retirement/Assisted Living” and the “Best All Precast Concrete” Award for 2016 for our work on the Woodlawn Senior Housing project in Chicago. PCI reviews notable projects by PCI certified plants across the country when designating this award. An independent panel judges the complexity, quality and innovation of each applicant.
The Woodlawn Senior Housing project, designed by Landon Bone Baker Architects, employs an all-precast concrete design to provide a cost-effective, durable structure that breathes new life into the neighborhood. Contrasting shades of white, gray brick and orange minimize scale while connecting the building to the surrounding gardens. Inherent fire-resistant qualities of precast concrete are critical for the structure’s senior residents.
The five-story building now provides 65 seniors with a healthy home, headquarters for the Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) management and operations, and a resource center to serve the once marginalized community.
