"Working with Spancrete was instrumental in JJ Henderson & Son's winning the design build competition from the Navy/VA."
- David A. Henderson, President, JJ Henderson & Son

A combined effort between the Department of Defense and the Department of Veteran Affairs kicked into high gear with the July 2008 completion of a four-story, 250,000 sq. ft. parking deck. the structure will provide parking for the new Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center which - for the first time ever - will provide medical treatment to both active-duty and retired military personnel.

Located in North Chicago, Il., Spancrete provided close to 150,000 feet of double tees, as well as columns, beams, spandrels, hollowcore plank, stair units and formcast slabs. In addition, Spancrete provided more than 100 wall panels, featuring an acid etch, thin brick exterior finish. the thin brick was custom designed to match the original hospital facade.

To achieve optimum value, the parking structure project used a design-build approach that provided a single-source team for architectural design and production, all the way through finished construction. The end result was a parking deck that was complete in record time and under budget, which ultimately limited disruption to the existing medical campus.
