Nestled between the historic Auditorium Theatre and the Fine Arts building, the site for the new Roosevelt University vertical campus was a challenge for any contractor, but especially for the demolition contractor.  Faced with the task of demolishing the existing basement without affecting either of the neighboring landmarks, they called on our expertise.  We met the contractor on site, pored over the existing drawings, coordinated with the earth retention contractor and prepared a set of drawings and reports that allowed the contractor to secure their permits and successfully complete their work.  Based on our success with the initial phase of the project, the construction manager hired us to review the construction process for the foundation and superstructure and prepare a report for the Chicago Department of Historic Preservation.
