MRG Construction Corp (MRGC) works with a wide range of clients including restaurants, convenience stores, professional offices, and other commercial organizations. We also frequently serve clients in the healthcare industry. Our team excels at meeting the stringent requirements to create functional, state-of-the-art heath facilities including maintaining a healthy and clean environment on the jobsite while construction work is being performed. This presents a great challenge, and one, with planning, the MRGC crew knocks out of the park every time.
Heartland Health Centers (HHC) in Chicago at 845 W Wilson Ave had two missions:
- Refresh and modernization of their 1st-floor clinic specifically to update their ceilings.
- Update and remodel their dentistry practice in the basement level.
On the 1st floor, HHC’s office had old-style acoustic ceiling tile with an outdated grid structure. The entire ceiling was gutted to make way for a more modern drop ceiling. The fresh, clean look of the new office also included patching and painting the walls and updating the floor with durable and attractive VCT (vinyl composition tile). Furthermore, with the restructure of the ceilings, MRGC ran new electrical lines to connect the lighting we installed. We also dropped new ceiling ventilation units for the HVAC system.
To ensure that the office experienced as little downtime as possible, half of the office was closed for updating. Upon completion of that phase and a thorough cleaning, the other half of the office was closed, workers moved into the newly updated facility, and the rest of the project commenced. This required expert project management, something MRGC clients can always trust to ensure quality.
In the lower level of the building, the dentistry office required significant updates too. In addition to ceiling work, patching, and painting, MRG Construction handled more extensive flooring updates. The former terrazzo-tile flooring required leveling. More than that, new plumbing needed to be laid under the flooring to the dentist chairs using the existing trenching system. After installing new plumbing, a pourable floor leveler ensured a properly laid and flat flooring over which VCT was installed transforming the space in terms of both form and function.
We are thankful to have the opportunity to partner with HHC for this and other projects. Their upgraded facilities allow their team of medical professionals to deliver healthcare in clean, modern, and reliable facilities which are structurally sound, pleasantly attractive and comfortable, and durable with ample lighting, HVAC, and plumbing.
