Helios completed a 17,000 SF buildout Teach for America's headquarters located in Chicago. A fast-tracked construction schedule was necessary as the client vacated all employees for a month to complete the work. Work included new flooring, new workstations, updated power/data, reconfiguration of various rooms into offices, conference rooms, and other facility rooms. New lighting, wall finishes and several custom millwork pieces finished the look. Challenges to the project included an aggressive schedule which required creativity with material procurement, environmental conditions requiring unexpected abatement, and the location being in the heart of an occupied commercial office high rise.
