Events Construction Progress 6/1/18 - PresentIn case you didn't know yet, we're moving offices! Our current location at 537 E Michigan Ave will soon be replaced by 511. We expect the construction will be completed sometime in September. Until then, enjoy some pictures of the process.Phase 1: PlanningWe started work on the new office on June 1st. The proposed floor plan has been laid down with tape, and any sections that are to be removed are marked. Because some of the existing walls intersect with our proposed offices and hallways, they will be demolished shortly. Another problem was the large, load-bearing pillar that occupies the mid-back area. Luckily we've managed to plan around it. After this phase is complete, it's on to demolition. Phase 2: DemolitionThe next phase is under way. We've started the demo, torn up the carpet, and removed the ceiling. Some additional walls may be removed in the near future. Phase 3: New WallsAfter a few more excess walls were removed, we had the frames for our new walls put in. For months, we've been planning the best layout for the office. The hallway and the reception area are now at least twice as wide as they were before, allowing for more comfortable transportation. Our offices are also larger. Phase 4: DrywallThe once-hollow walls are solid now. At this point, the office is in its final stages of completion. Lights and electrical were installed as well, and very soon the walls will be painted. Phase 5: Carpet and PaintWe now have something to walk on. The carpet is set, along with the moulding and trim. Similarly, the bathroom floor is laid now. Speaking of bathrooms, we now have two! Wait times will now be non-existent. Window Art Every so often we have our windows painted by Sharon Sunday. She runs her own private painting business and has a website at sharonsunday.net. Window paintings help bring a fun atmosphere to our services and look great in the process. Here are our current and some of our past window paintings.
