Cook County Hospital & North Shore Care Center

FJJ provided full service mechanical and electrical design for a complete remodel of the existing hospital and nursing facility areas. This was a multiple phase project that required the hospital and the nursing facility to remain in operation during construction. The project included re-design and redistribution of all of the HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, and Life Safety systems in the facility. The mechanical work included upgrades to the boiler/hydronic system, upgrades/additions of new HVAC equipment and distribution as well as the plumbing system. The electrical work included upgrades/additions to the facilities lighting, power, nurse call, and security upgrades that included door security upgrades and Wandergaurd system for the nursing facility.
