Teach for America is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate educational inequity.
Helios completed a 17,000 SF renovation of a full floor at 300 W. Adams for Teach for America as they relocated and consolidated operations in 2016. Work entailed a new entry, new flooring, finishes throughout, revamped conference spaces, new modular furniture, new lighting, and custom millwork, all in a compact and aggressive 6-week schedule. Helios isolated contained and completed abatement with minimal impact on the project schedule when unanticipated asbestos was discovered during demolition. A collaborative approach during preconstruction and construction allowed the client to confidently vacate the premises and return their staff to a brand new home.
