Date of Completion
Helios Construction Services provided general contracting services for The Seneca Apartments Amenity Level Renovation in scenic Streeterville just one block off Michigan Ave. The Seneca is a converted hotel with 16 floors of residential units. The project was to build out the 5000 sf unfinished basement into a new Amenity space for the residents with a new fitness center and bar/lounge area. New tile steps with decorative railings were added from the existing lobby leading directly down to a seating area with TVs and a dry bar with the new fitness area just around the corner to the left. Structural repairs were performed to the existing concrete structure to alleviate the concerns that years of patch work had created. A new HVAC system was added along with 3 new bathrooms all while remaining conscious of the ceiling height constraints of the existing space. The project required quick thinking and decision making to address discovered conditions while preserving the overall aesthetic and design intent.
