The 14, 315 square-foot, single story, low maintenance building has a modern, minimalist design. It is a load bearing structure, with glazed concrete block, glass block, structural steel framing and a ballasted EPDM roof. Bamboo wood panels and cast terrazzo floor tiles adorn the interior main entry/reception/waiting areas. The 1.74 acre site is fully landscaped and has on-site storm water detention. A 50-car parking area accommodates patients. The building is a perfect fit for the neighborhood and complements well the Plainfield Road business corridor.
MRI Research Facility
Location: Chicago, Illinois
The project involved The Lombard Company constructing a facility that would contain the world’s most powerful functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) magnet at UIC’s Center for Magnetic Resonance Research on the west campus. This included approximately 500 tons of steel, which was up to two feet thick, to encircle the magnet to confine stray magnetic fields that would disrupt the magnet’s function. To protect the magnet from street traffic and a nearby transit line, the steel was set on a separate foundation which rested on dozens of caissons sunk 40-50 feet below the ground.
Location: Palos Heights, Illinois
The Lombard Company originally constructed this surgery/lithotripter center for Dr. Thomas Evans.
