Leopardo-built University of Chicago Medicine Center for Advanced Care Wins CISCO Project of the Year Award

Leopardo has been awarded a 2016 Project of the Year award from the Construction Industry Service Corporation (CISCO) in the suburban new construction over $20 million category for the University of Chicago Medicine Center for Advanced Care at Orland Park.

The project includes a four-story multi-use building with 80 exam rooms, 26 infusion bays and a pharmacy. It provides services in radiation oncology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, cardiology, pediatrics, women’s health and surgical consulting. The 108,000-square-foot ambulatory health care facility is currently the University of Chicago Medicine’s largest off-campus location.  The center and its services will help meet the growing health care demand of the 120,000 University of Chicago Medicine patients in the southwest suburbs.

The project was a joint-venture between Leopardo and The Bowa Group, in collaboration with Massachusetts-based architect Tsoi/Kobus & Associates.

Leopardo received the award at CISCO’s annual Pride in Construction Award Program at the association’s annual breakfast meeting on Jan. 27 at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Schaumburg.

This is Leopardo’s third CISCO project of the year award. The company won in 2009 for the Aurora Police Headquarters and Branch Court Facility and again in 2014 for the Universal Technical Institute.

In addition to the CISCO award, Leopardo has recently received multiple prestigious honors from its peers, clients and the media, including:
