This project was my first test in the professional field. The program called for a small generator expansion building for an office in Oak Brook, Illinois. The building would include a generator, fuel storage, loading dock and access to existing storage areas on the interior of the building. Design was an important consideration because the existing building was designed by Mies van der Rohe. We had to incorporate the critical equipment necassary into a design that would respect the sensitive existing architecture. This project was an excellent learning oppurtunity for me because of my deep involvement with it from design concept through construction documentation to completion.
