Thank you to our project partners for their work on the Waters Elementary School Annex and Renovation Project.

Construction soon finishes at the annex at Waters Elementary School in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood. Detail work is now happening at the folded metal panels around the accent curtain wall areas (e.g., art room, entrance, and media center). Flatwork and landscaping around the main entrance is nearly done and will move to the south area of the annex shortly.

Many thanks to our partners Public Building Commission of Chicago, Chicago Public Schools, Bailey Edward, and Doyle & Associates.

Congratulations to our our project partners for achieving LEED Silver Certification, from the US Green Building Council, at the PrussingElementarySchool Annex Project.

A Legat-designed annex to Chicago’s Prussing Elementary School (built in 1926) has achieved LEED Silver certification from the US Green Building Council. A few sustainable stats:

• The addition uses 30% less energy than a typical building of its size.
• 48% of materials purchased for the project were regionally sourced (within 500 miles). The LEED minimum is 20% to achieve the credit.
• 30% of purchased materials came from recycled sources.

The 18,000-square-foot addition features a two-story atrium and large dining room, as well as an art lab, science lab, music room, kitchen, offices, and two classrooms. The project also includes extensive structural repairs to the existing building, as well as a complete redesign of almost the entire site to provide users with a new multipurpose playing field and parking lot.

Thanks to our partners Public Building Commission of Chicago, Chicago Public Schools, and George Sollitt Construction Co.

COVID cases are on the rise in Chicago.

Across age and gender.
Across our North, South and West Sides.
And among Black, White and Brown residents.

We all need to do our part to slow the spread—that means every one of us needs to keep wearing a mask and social distancing. See the latest data on COVID in Chicago ⬇️

We cannot afford to lose our fair share of federal funding for schools, roads, and clinics. Today is the LAST FULL DAY to complete your census. Do it for #Chicago. My2020census.gov

If you’ve been ignoring all my posts about the Census, today is the day to get serious. We'll lose $1,400 in federal funding for every uncounted Chicagoan. The deadline is here—get it done now so we get the federal resources we deserve. my2020census.gov

DPD today announced a new three-year, citywide planning initiative under Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot that will encourage neighborhood growth and vibrancy while addressing social and economic inequities that impair Chicago’s legacy as a global city: https://bit.ly/3jbumNd

“The #WeWillChicago plan will be the driving effort to enhance livability citywide, especially in light of the ongoing pandemic and economic recession,” said Eleanor Gorski, DPD’s First Deputy Commissioner. “As a guiding document based on the needs and goals of community stakeholders, the plan will help identify citywide priorities, spending and policy-making for years to come.”

As the first citywide plan of its type since the “1966 Comprehensive Plan,” We Will’s initial goals for future growth across Chicago are based on three core principles: equity, diversity and resiliency for all residents in every neighborhood.

Who is the Public Building Commission?

The Public Building Commission of Chicago plans, designs and constructs municipal buildings—schools, libraries, fieldhouses, fire stations and more.

The Public Building Commission is committed to client service and strong stewardship of public resources. The PBC plans, designs and builds municipal facilities that reflect the highest standards of environmental and economic sustainability.

The vision of the Public Building Commission is a built environment in which function, beauty and sustainability are inherent to every community; where physical surroundings inspire and support achievement of the individual goals of those who live, work and visit Chicago and Cook County; and, where people gather to share the common values that truly build our communities.

The Public Building Commission of Chicago was established on July 25, 1956. Recognizing the need for professional management of public construction projects, Mayor Richard J. Daley formed the Public Building Commission to oversee construction and help ensure quality facilities, an important goal that lies at the heart of our organization. Today, Chairman Lori Lightfoot is joined on the board by 10 other business and civic leaders whose dedication to the city and its communities has led them to volunteer their time to shape Chicago’s built environment and its future.

Access to knowing It can help you and your business to keep growing, and by just letting others know... It's truly awesome to live in a community that's thriving. It's significant for underserved communities and those with high unemployment numbers get a stimulus package and improvement projects begun in them. It's a blessing when you see the residents of these communities working on these projects and within these programs. I applaud the Organization's, Public Officials and Companies that fulfill these needs...
