University of Chicago – Donoghue

Chicago, IL

The University of Chicago Charter School’s Donoghue campus is composed of a 75,000 SF two-story main building that was constructed in 1963. The renovation of this building totaled $3.8M and included interior and exterior repair. The exterior underwent a 48,000 SF roof replacement that included an extension and redesign of the corrugated metal parapet, 100% masonry tuckpointing, and replacement of all existing plexiglass windows.

The interior scope included painting of select classrooms, library, and toilet rooms, patchwork in the toilet rooms, as well as new flooring and furniture in the cafeteria. Due to water infiltration of existing windows in classrooms, select finish renovations were completed.
