Helios provided pre-construction and construction services for this high-end dental studio in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. As part of the client's overall sustainable corporate philosophy, the ORA Dental Studio project meets LEED® Gold certification.
Prior to lease execution, Helios worked with ORA and the architect to provide accurate pricing based on several unique building conditions. Helios also collaborated with the design team to help evaluate the cost/benefit of all building systems (shading, day-lighting, lighting and HVAC systems) to reduce annual operating costs by 30 percent, with a minimal increase in construction costs.
Helios performed "deconstruction" of the existing finishes in the space, salvaging those that fit within the design and donating the remaining items to a local not-for-profit building material exchange.
