Challenge: Manage the construction of a 20,000 SF historic 1896 landmark building addition on the SIU campus in Carbondale, IL.

Solution: Peak worked closely with Janko Builders, White & Borgognoni Architects, SIU and the State of Illinois Capital Development Board to manage and construct a historical landmark facility addition that ultimately exceeded the project requirements. Work included four-story masonry construction during the winter, correction of a variety of concealed conditions uncovered in the portion of the facility renovated in 1986, complete renovation of the existing 1896 building, and new washrooms, classrooms, meeting rooms, and offices. Special acoustical finishes and features were incorporated throughout both the existing structure and the new addition to permit music majors and SIU core music curriculums to benefit from the facility.
