Providing Preconstruction and General Contractor services, Novak constructed this 4-story, 73-unit Assisted Living Center located in Brookfield, Illinois. The new portion of the facility was constructed of metal stud-bearing walls, structural concrete deck, and brick veneer to minimize steel fabrication durations. This facet also accelerated the project schedule. In addition to the new kitchen and dining facility, this “adult life community” features spacious common areas.

Novak also successfully renovated one of the campus’ 1920s buildings in order to construct and incorporate into existing systems new physical therapy and wellness centers, as well as a physicians’ area. Novak Construction provided substantial preconstruction services during design development to assist with strategic subcontractor selection and to coordinate architectural, structural and mechanical systems to best shape the project and maximize the overall value for the owner.

I wanted to take a few minutes to send a personal thank you to John Novak and his dedicated staff. The professional team efforts shown by all of Novak Construction Company proved to us that this company is the best in the business…[The] team was there to provide selective value engineering early on in the project to make this a reality. The estimator, project managers and field superintendents went above and beyond the call of duty each day for the duration. They understood that this was our residents’ home and were always very cautious and conscientious of the residents’ safety. – Mike Leganski, Director of Engineering
