All Construction Slow, Except For This Niche
It's been a slow recovery for metro Chicago construction. But Reed Construction prez Bill Birck tells us that the local corporate interiors niche is active and steadily growing. (Construction workers can start using hammers for their intended purposes again; no more impromptu juggling lessons.)

Reed is riding the wave with projects in greater Chicago for tenants including Coyote Logistics, LaFarge, Beam Global, and Braintree. Bill also says Reed is working on a large suburban project for a renowned global snack company. (Which has to remain nameless: isn’t that the cheesiest?) In another indication of stronger times, Reed has added several new project members to its roster. All in all, Bill says that he’s gone from "cautiously optimistic" to "moderately optimistic" in the past several months.

Firms with specialized design-build expertise also have a leg up on the sluggish building climate, with healthcare design in particular demand. Recently Premier Design + Build Group completed the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at SilverCross Hospital and the Carolyn J. Czerkies Pavilion, a 22.5k SF facility (pictured) in Will County, including specialized cancer treatment procedure areas, chemotherapy infusion bays, CT imaging, and radiation oncology via linear accelerator radiotherapy equipment. (Doesn't the President have to be notified before using something like that?)
