As COVID-19 positive case numbers rise throughout the United States and in Illinois, many national and state-owned resources are tapped for response by Doctor Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Brix, US President Trump, and Illinois Governor Pritzker. In March 2020, the Chicago Veterans Home new construction development was fast-tracked for completion as an available COVID facility.  The plans for finalizing construction on the medical campus was accelerated into a 2-week plan, to provide the 200-bed veterans facility available to the State of Illinois as soon as possible.

In late March, Gov. J.B. Pritzker appointed Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center Halls and the Chicago Veterans Home as facilities to be converted to a hospital to handle patients due to the new Corona COVID-19 cases in Illinois.  At the time of the acceleration of construction, the Illinois Governor’s office’s “thinking was that in two weeks, the state is going to need any and all space they can find” according to ENR Midwest article.

Illinois state-owned and lead-operated by the Illinois Capital Development Board, the $71-million Chicago Veterans Home building project has had delays since construction began in 2012 because of a faulty foundation design by the original structural engineer and because of shutdowns over disagreements between former Governor Bruce Rauner and Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan. During the past 10 years, according to an article published by the Columbia Chronicle, “the construction project has seen a number of complications, including a budget impasse under former Gov. Bruce Rauner, a design flaw due to earthquake resistance zoning requirements and funding problems.” The Capital Development Board organization oversees construction of new state facilities, such as prisons, college buildings and mental hospitals. It also is responsible for renovation and rehabilitation projects at currently 8,771 state-owned buildings.

From the ENR.com article, the project’s contractor IHC Construction accelerated the schedule for the Chicago Illinois Veterans Home Property by coordinating additional trades on-site to meet the early delivery of the property. “IHC put on a second shift and is now working to get the 200-bed home done as quickly as possible. The firm brought in a cleaning crew that spends about three hours cleaning and disinfecting the space [using] … CDC-approved protocols between shifts and at the end of the day. Other measures include spreading out the work by sending in only two trades workers per space used in the H-shaped, five-story building.”

The Illinois Veterans Home Chicago location is located 13 miles from downtown Chicago located on a portion of the Chicago-Read Mental Health Center site.  The urban property’s site location is on Chicago’s northwest side. Chicago’s Illinois Veterans’ Home is the very first Veteran’s facility building within the City of Chicago. The home is a non-age-restricted, licensed skilled care programming and features a strategic adjacency to the Illinois Read Mental Health Center.

The Chicago Illinois Veterans Home is the first newly constructed veterans’ home in Illinois in over 20 years. The Illinois Veterans’ Home is the first veteran’s facility in the state to incorporate the federal Community Living Center (CLC) guidelines with an architectural and interior design created to resemble “home” as much as possible meanwhile providing skilled nursing and medical care services. The facility will provide skilled care for Illinois veterans, including accommodations for Alzheimers care. “This project embodies a paradigm shift in how the State of Illinois approaches veteran care,” says HED Principal and Studio Leader Susan King,  “Using the CLC guidelines, which was mandated by the Federal Veterans Administration for all newly constructed projects in 2011, we’ve created a facility that incorporates small house design at a large scale.” The design of the building is in conformance with the Community Living Concepts (CLC). Greenhouse concepts for senior living and requirements of IDPH was recommended for firms submitting for this project.  

Chicago interior photographer, with a shot list including photography inside the property, photographing images of the nursing hospital and residential veterans living facility.  Photography of the interior construction included the upper floor’s residential areas design with a combined kitchen dining area, library, nurses’ station, corridors, spa tub bathing suite, and a variety of resident rooms sizes. On the first-floor, photography of the hospital commercial dining staff’s dietary stainless steel kitchen, refrigerator cooler, delivery, and food service diet preparation areas.  According to King at HED “The dining program utilizes a hybrid approach with central and residential format kitchens in each household to serve the population appropriately. Medical features and spaces such as nursing stations were approached through a hospitality lens, with finishes that recall a household environment.”

Construction of the 200-bed Veterans home facility is a project managed by the Capital Development Board of Illinois.  M+M are Chicago architectural photographers who quote photos of a variety of design and construction company’s portfolio projects. Over the years we’ve been commissioned for photography projects by many of the professional architects, engineers, project managers, interior designers, construction experts, and construction trades project participants many which the Capital Development Board manage for design and construction of Illinois state-funded facilities. The Capital Development Board, CDB manages projects that touch the lives of almost every state of Illinois citizen with work, construction and development on various state property projects colleges and universities, public safety centers, museums and historic sites, state parks, healthcare centers, and health & office buildings. Custom quoting each exterior and interior photography project producing a set of finalized portfolio images for sales, documentation and marketing / new business promotional purposes of construction buildings and facilities.  

We are a photographer who discusses a building’s exterior to ensure our shots of photography of the Chicago Illinois Veterans Home property included the views the client had envisioned.  Architectural and interesting aspects of the symmetrical designed H shaped, mid-rise property included aerial drone images, ground day and night photography, balcony shots utilizing the residential kitchen living room common area’s private wing terraces, and photos of the resident’s northern gardens to include the second-floor green landscaped garden terrace rooftop and additional garden landscaping sitting area below on the veterans home’s first-floor.  The Chicago Skyline is viewable in the distance from the East facing resident rooms and captured within the aerial drone photography.

The Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital renovation project added 230,000 square feet.  The healthcare building construction project included an architect’s reno plan, a hospital design, construction and renovation of 150,000 existing square feet.

The photography shoot had a primary focus on photographs of the new designed entrance and the highlight of the hospital renovation modernization construction at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington.  The new modern entrance and new glass exterior building facade is highly visible upon first arriving at the hospital’s main entrance drive.  The main entrance doors features new floor-to-ceiling windows, which overlooks a landscaped garden.  This new all glass facade opens up and modernizes the old main entrance space, allowing an abundance of natural light to enter into the building. Both the new entryway and addition of a serpentine glass wall construction seamlessly flows visitors into the new Paul and Barbara Hills Center for Advanced Care wing.  This modern glass addition dramatically modernizes the building’s main elevation on the Southwest side of the healthcare facility. The building’s glass entry, glass floor to ceiling southwest facade, and glass serpentine wall of the property by Harmon Construction Inc.Harmoninc.com construction company.
