Jeffrey A. Raday, P.E., President of McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm has completed the comprehensive construction services for Myers Place, a supportive housing development constructed on behalf of a partnership formed by Daveri Development Group, LLC and the Kenneth Young Center.
The new 39-unit residential facility is located on a 3.7-acre site at 1585 W. Dempster Street in Mount Prospect, Illinois, a northwest suburban community of Chicago.
The supportive living development offers a total of 39 units including 21 furnished one-bedroom apartments and 18 fully-equipped studios. Each unit is occupied by an individual(s) who can live independently without assisted care. However, access to available supportive services is located on the first floor of the facility, if required.
The four-story, 41,715 square foot residential complex was designed and constructed to meet LEED designation incorporating numerous sustainable features throughout the living spaces, common areas and exterior components of the development. A geothermal heating and cooling system was constructed employing a vertical ground-source heat pump unit to heat and cool the complex. Exterior walls were constructed for maximum thermal efficiency and sun screens placed on the south- and west-facing windows reduce heating and cooling demand. Additional sustainable features include locally sourced materials, recycled material content and drought-tolerant landscaping.
The first floor of the residential building features laundry facilities, computer room, tenant and bicycle storage areas, staff and management services offices as well as a 4,500 square foot commercial retail component. McShane also completed the comprehensive landscaping, sitework and parking areas for the development.
“McShane Construction is proud to have served as general contractor for the Myers Place supportive housing complex,” remarked Raday. “Daveri Development’s determination to bring this project to a successful completion will positively impact the lives of many individuals within the local community who will benefit from this supportive living opportunity.”
Cordogan, Clark & Associates provided the comprehensive architectural services for the assignment.
