Senior Living and Healthcare
In order to remedy a shortage of functional space, correct existing building system deficiencies and satisfy European Union regulations, IGW was hired by the Community Blood Services of Illinois to redesign their existing blood center in Urbana, Illinois. So that operations could continue throughout construction, a new, two-story 6,800 square foot addition was initially completed for the relocation of donor services and staff offices and was followed by the phased renovation of the remaining 13,700 square feet of existing space for lab processing and shipping, receiving and storage facilities.
Not only did this comprehensive interior and exterior renovation result in a safe and efficient work place for the staff but it provided a more attractive and comfortable setting for the donors. Site work included new donor parking convenient to the main entrance, staff and agency vehicle parking, a covered loading dock and native landscaping.
