February 18, 2015

O’Shea Builders was chosen as Construction Manager for the renovation of Everitt Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The building, located at 1406 W. Green Street, in Urbana, will undergo a complex renovation to integrate Bioengineering on the campus and establish the University of Illinois as a national and international leader in the future.

Design activity for the new Bioengineering Laboratory began in Fall 2014 with construction activity slated to begin early 2016 continuing through Spring of 2018. The project includes the renovation of approximately 124,206 s.f. of space, while converting over 10,000 s.f. into new research areas and associated support spaces for the Department of Bioengineering. The project also includes mechanical upgrades that will improve the efficiency of the heating and air-conditioning system.
