Fertility Centers of Ilinois- Hoffman Estates

FCI is a 3,000 sq. ft. state of the art specialty medical clinic located in a northwest suburb of Chicago. The space was created for patients' comfort and advanced medicine. The facility utilizes warm, soft finishes rather than a sterile medical atmosphere.

Westwood DNN Dental Lab- Denver, CO

As a clinical facility for a new dental program, the dental lab encompasses a 5,000 sq. ft. interior space within the Westwood College campus. The program offers a state of the art dental facility with advanced equipment to students, preparing them for the future.

Dunkin Donuts- Park Ridge, IL

This high-end Dunkin coffee shop with "jazz brew" finishes incorporates many new Dunkin features, such as an illuminated glass wall, bright colored chandeliers, and artwork and murals on the wall. The soft seating adds a nice ambience to the coffee drinking experience. The store was further expanded by adding an outdoor patio for summer enjoyment.

Illinois Institute of Art- Schaumburg, IL

Various spaces of the college campus were renovated and remodeled to accommodate a new and enhanced video studio, classrooms, art labs, computer labs and offices.

Strip Mall- Chicago, IL

Currently under construction, this 4,000 sq. ft. strip mall will include three separate food service facilities and tenant build-outs with a drive-thru. It is located in south Chicago and is scheduled to open in winter of 2014.

Orchard Village- Skokie, IL

This project required adaptive re-use of an existing office building to accommodate the growth of Orchard Village, a non-profit organization. The interior was brightened by using a vibrant color pallet. The inspiration for the color scheme was based on the Orchard Village logo. This creates a professional and playful environment for the user group.

Regulatory Updates which Matter to You and Your Projects:

  • All restaurants and QSR's are required to obtain a Health Department approval in addition to a City of Chicago building permit. AKA can assist you in getting such approval.
  • The City of Chicago has streamlined its electronic permit review process, making it faster than it has been in the past. First reviews are now completed in about 4-6 weeks.
  • We are starting to see an upswing in construction activity in various jurisdictions resulting in overall increased permit review timelines across the country.
