The City of Chicago unveiled five finalists for the architectural design of a massive $8.5 billion expansion of O’Hare International Airport. TKB is a member of the Foster Epstein Moreno team vying for selection for the new global terminal replacing Terminal 2.
Chicago Public School’s Audubon School celebrates the completion of a student-focused landscape design with new site amenities and sustainable features at a ribbon-cutting attended by it students, teachers, and local dignitaries including Mayor Rahm Emmanuel.
TKB is the architect for recently opened new clinics and enhanced pre-surgical areas for Stroger Hospital, Cook County’s major public hospital, increasing utilization by incorporating specialty clinics into previously underused space. The recent opening of these new clinics allows for the planned demolition of the County’s Fantus building and opening of a new building housing clinics and administrative offices on the same healthcare campus.
For the third year in a row, TKB is participating in Harold Washington College’s Aon Scholars Program, which matches outstanding community college students with Chicago firms affiliated with Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses. This summer, TKB welcomed accounting student Maryam Hajipour. Maryam’s enthusiasm for learning and hard work bode well for a successful future career!
In honor of the holiday season, TKB made an employee-directed donation to the Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center. ChicagoCAC is a long term client, for whom TKB has worked on multiple facility renovations and their recent building addition (see link to: PBC/CCAC project). TKB believes in the ChicagoCAC mission, and previously made in-kind donations of conference chairs and tables to help furnish their expanded facility.
ChicagoCAC provides a safe place for children and their families to report abuse and to heal. Their holistic approach is an example to other communities and organizations. We appreciate the hard work and caring demonstrated by the ChicagoCAC, and are delighted to share with them.
