Originally built in 1929, the Mundelein Center is a 14-story concrete-framed, limestone-clad structure on Loyola University’s Lakeshore Campus and registered as a National Historic Landmark and an official Chicago Landmark.
Loyola planned a major renovation of the 4-story space, which originally housed a basement swimming pool, locker rooms, and a gymnasium, to be transformed into a full featured 230 seat performing arts theater. This included the necessary amenities such as fully equipped scene building shops and practice spaces, and was topped with a new glass ballroom at the roof level. This project entailed many unique challenges that Klein and Hoffman met successfully with enthusiasm and creativity.
An aggressive design and construction schedule was established by the Owner which required constructible, timely, and effective designs and out-of-the-box thinking. The K&H team creatively took advantage of the reserve capacity in the existing structure and reinforced the elements to accommodate the new loading requirements. K&H’s expertise in concrete repair and façade restoration and understanding of the materials’ behavior were key in the success of the project and realizing the Owner’s dream and the Architect’s objectives.
