ICI constructed a three-story addition and completed a major renovation, including installation of an elevator and steel staircase, at the Cicero School District 99’s Administration Center.

The project scope included reinforcing the building’s stone foundation, the installation of new steel columns and beams and
foundation footings to correct floor deflection. Tuckpointing took place where feasible and, in some instances, entire areas were replaced with new brick on the exterior.

Upon inspecting the roof, it was found that the rafters were split, requiring three-quarters of the roof to be removed and replaced. Entrance support columns were also replaced.

The mechanical system, sewer piping and electrical distribution service were replaced. An “addressable” fire alarm system was also installed.

Additionally, asbestos and lead abatement were performed and a hazardous underground fuel tank was removed. Interior renovations included new windows and lintels, light fixtures and floor coverings. Bathrooms were upgraded to become ADA compliant.

In the summer of 2008, ICI returned to complete minor life safety renovations to the building. A phased turnover was coordinated to allow for the tenant work spaces to remain functional throughout the course of the project.
