It was exciting to work with a legacy client on such an innovative project and to support their vision of an exciting cooperative journey with one unified goal – the rapid translation of fundamental scientific discoveries into real treatments for human health.
Loyola University Center for Translational Research and Education
The Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE) at Loyola University Chicago’s Maywood campus is a five-story, 232,000 sf integrated research and teaching facility supported by the collaboration of the University, Loyola University Health System, and CHE-Trinity Health. The purpose of the CTRE project was to consolidate programs; provide a high-quality interactive and collaborative research environment; support program growth; and encourage outreach and interaction between the health-science campus, Trinity Health Systems, and the surrounding community. The $137 million facility includes state-of-the-art laboratory spaces, office, collaborative environments, and a ground floor auditorium.
Cotter provided project management services for the construction of the CTRE and participated in the programming and oversight of the design process to ensure stakeholders’ requirements were incorporated into the contract documents. Cotter led the procurement of lab furnishings and equipment, ensuring proper coordination with the base building. Cotter also reviewed contractor schedules, reviewed and negotiated change orders, and managed the commissioning process and move-in coordination.
