Skender completed a buildout of the Center for Pain and Spine Health in Bloomingdale, IL for longtime client Northwestern Medicine

Skender Builds Out Bloomingdale Space for Longtime Client Northwestern Medicine

Skender recently completed the buildout of the Northwestern Medicine Center for Pain and Spine Health Bloomingdale. The multidisciplinary clinic is located at 245 Gary Ave. in Bloomingdale, IL and provides collaborative medical office space for pain medicine specialists, neurosurgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists and advanced practice nurses.

The 12,000-square-foot project was comprised of a comprehensive renovation of the first floor including new imaging equipment, patient care areas, and physical therapy specialty spaces.

Along with the clinical build out, the building underwent significant infrastructure upgrades. They included new electrical service and transformer, as well as multiple crane lifts to replace four rooftop mechanical units on a highly condensed schedule to limit impacts to existing tenants. 

“Teamwork is critical, especially when it comes to healthcare construction,” said Skender VP Brian Kane. The construction firm has collaborated with Northwestern Medicine on more than 200 projects since 2008.
