City Colleges of Chicago
The Moody Nolan team was selected by the City Colleges of Chicago to complete the design and administer construction of the new 500,000 SF academic building and adjacent parking deck for this new medical education-based campus. Utilizing the SD documents prepared by others, HDG prepared a design development site plan and construction documents for the hardscape and landscape for the 4-block site on the near west side of Chicago.
Sustainable elements include permeable paving, stormwater infiltration planting areas, LED lighting, rainwater and air handler condensate harvesting for irrigation, 99% native landscaping, and one acre of 100% native green roof plantings. Outdoor Education and social interaction opportunities include an outdoor Main Entry plaza, student plaza, large Conference Center Commons, a child care outdoor play and learning environment, and a third floor green roof with outdoor classrooms, shade structure / stage area and multiple gathering areas for staff, faculty and students to use throughout their day and evening on the campus. The project is pursuing LEED Gold.
