Project

University of Illinois at Chicago Mile Square Health Center

Mile Square Health Center at UIC provides holistic healthcare services to underserved and disadvantaged patients on Chicago’s West Side.

The building houses family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, midwifery, mental health, and a dentistry practice. It also includes additional space for offices, nurse stations, exam rooms, procedure rooms, labs, a pharmacy, and waiting and registration areas.

As a sub-consultant for the project, Cotter provided cost estimating for the four design milestones of the project, as well as FF&E and bid evaluation services. As a grant-funded project with a tight budget, Cotter worked to ensure strictly controlled costs for the project.

Cotter also served as the LEED consultant for the project, providing LEED facilitation and online administration in support of the project goal to achieve LEED Gold certification. Cotter staff increased the level of LEED certification from LEED Silver to LEED Gold mid-project to meet owner goals with no impact on the schedule.

Mile Square Health Center’s new building is a LEED Gold manifestation of their mission to provide quality and accessible care for all patients. Nowhere is this more evident than in the special attention to signage and communication pieces displayed within the building. We were so happy to help develop the content that will make visitors aware of the environmental benefits, and potential health benefits of building features.
