Mosaic Construction, LLC says it has started work on a medical office renovation project for TCA Health, a medical clinic serving an at-risk community on Chicago’s far south side at 1029 East 130th St.
The 2,700-sq. ft. grant-funded project will update and transform the patient reception area, waiting rooms, private offices, counsel rooms, and connecting corridors in the East Wing to match an earlier renovation of the building. Demolition and renovation of the East Wing started in May 2020 and will feature new lighting, flooring, paint, acoustic ceiling tiles, stainless steel corner guards, and other finishes complementing the facility.
“We are proud to partner with TCA Health on their East Wing renovation and contribute to a bright, happy and positive environment for both patients and staff as they provide much-needed integrated primary care and behavioral health services to the Chicago south side community,” said Mosaic Construction principal Ira Singer.
A City of Chicago building permit sets the project’s estimated value at $160,000 and describes the work as “limited remodeling of existing behavioral health suite in existing community health center. Architectural, HVAC, electrical, fire protection.”
“This new project represents the continued expansion of our work in the healthcare sector including medical office renovation services, interior construction of assisted living and independent living facilities, ambulatory care centers and similar spaces,” Singer said in a statement. “It’s also a great opportunity for us to work with new trade partners and to reinforce our partnership with Manske Dieckmann Thompson, an architecture firm that has been involved with the original building renovation since the beginning.”
Mosaic says in its statement that it “has instituted unprecedented protocols to support workers and trade partners on all of their job sites, including providing personal protective equipment, using increased sanitation and signage, staggering trade partners’ presence onsite, and scheduling multiple shifts to promote social distancing.”
Subtrades associated with the project according to the building permit include: Electrical –Candor Electric, Inc. and ventilation – Heatmasters Inc.
