Reed Construction Chosen for RUMC Campus-Wide Improvements




CHICAGO, October 1, 2015 – Reed Construction is pleased to announce that the firm has been selected to perform extensive upgrades at Rush University Medical Center (RUMC), located at 1653 W. Congress Parkway in Chicago.

Rush University Medical Center was founded in 1837, and is a not-for-profit, 664-bed academic medical center that is affiliated with Rush University. Considered one of Chicago’s finest academic medical centers, RUMC includes hospital facilities for adults and children, is nationally and internationally known, and has been named a Top Hospital in multiple categories by U.S. News & World Report.

Reed Construction was selected to perform campus-wide improvements, including upgrades on floors 1-11 of RUMC’s Professional Office Building. Reed will install approximately 51 automatic door openers, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The new system includes push button actuators that will release the doors automatically instead of having to manually open them. In addition, new mirrors and grab bars will be installed, as well as new toilet pipe insulation in 23 individual bathrooms.

The project is slated to begin in mid-October and conclude at the end of January 2016. Rich Melone will lead the team for Reed Construction as the senior project manager. Mac Flasch is the project engineer and Matt Mallers is the Project Superintendent.
