Mosaic Construction Renovates for a Return to the Office at Novel Coworking in River North

CHICAGO, IL (June 24, 2020) – As Chicago begins re-opening workplaces this month, many companies are contemplating a return to work and what safe office spaces might look like. Mosaic Construction, LLC, has just completed such a renovation, delivering a suite of private offices within Novel Coworking on the top floor of 420 West Huron Street in the River North area of downtown Chicago.

The 4,500 square foot renovated Smart Suite has been constructed to create a large open area with dedicated space for two private offices, a huddle room, and a phone booth for private calls. Facing south, the office is bathed in natural light throughout the day and features glass panels and doors, as well as a full-size private kitchenette.

Built to accommodate a truly connected, flexible and healthy working environment, Mosaic Construction worked with the Novel Coworking-led team of architects and mechanical engineers to install the latest electric and data/voice locations on the poles and perimeter wall to handle increased capacity of a modern, data-driven, connected workforce.

“Much of the work was performed during the stay-at-home order, enabling us to ensure it will be a space the members of Novel Coworking will be able to inhabit safely and with an eye to social distancing protocols,” said Ira Singer, Principal at Mosaic Construction. “We’re pleased to contribute to a positive return to the workplace for both tenants and staff at Novel Coworking, and look forward to future projects together.”

NORTHBROOK, IL  – Design Construction Concepts, a full-service design-build renovation firm, is pleased to announce the completion of a series of construction and renovation updates at JCC Chicago’s  ‘Z’ Frank Apachi Day Camp in Northbrook, IL. Designed to be welcoming and accommodating, the 14,000-square-foot renovations to the pool house and outdoor pavilion are ready and waiting to greet a new season of campers this summer.

“We are proud to partner with JCC Chicago on its Apachi Day Camp renovation and contribute to creating a positive, accessible and inclusionary camp experience for all,” said Andy Poticha, Principal at Design Construction Concepts. “We truly value our long-standing relationship with JCC Chicago and the Jewish United Fund (JUF), and are especially excited for this project as it is located in our own backyard.”

The renovated 9,500-square-foot pool house features new shower rooms, new bathrooms and new outdoor lockers with an eight-foot-high shade tree canopy and playful tile, all built in compliance with ADA standards with specific focus on the needs of campers with disabilities.

The newest improvements at ‘Z’ Frank Apachi Day Camp complement the expansive 4,500-square-foot outdoor pavilion completed last fall by Design Construction Concepts. The all-season, wooden focal point was designed for all camp events, including Shabbat celebrations.

“‘Z’ Frank Apachi Day Camp has been a summer home for campers for generations,” said Addie Goodman, President & CEO, JCC Chicago. “Working in partnership with Design Construction Concepts and our generous funders has allowed us to bring today’s vision for ‘Z’ Frank Apachi to reality. We can’t wait to see our campers enjoy these beautiful campus improvements when camp opens on July 6th.”

These projects were generously funded by community support and a grant provided by Foundation for Jewish Camp’s Yashar Initiative, funded by The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. The Yashar Initiative grants enable Jewish day and overnight camps to make important capital improvements to increase accessibility for campers and staff with disabilities.

JCC Chicago is a non-profit organization inspired by Jewish values, bridging traditions and generations to create a more vibrant, connected community. JCC Chicago is a partner with the Jewish United Fund in serving the community.
