Skender Construction Continues to Grow Healthcare Construction Team
Skender Construction announced today that it has added a new senior superintendent to its growing healthcare team.
John Weaver, LEED AP, CHC, has over 30 years’ experience managing construction for major healthcare institutions across Illinois. Weaver has served as senior superintendent for high-caliber projects such as Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, The Heart Hospital at SwedishAmerican and The Methodist Medical Center of Illinois Replacement Hospital. Weaver was a general superintendent at Turner Construction Company.
Jeff Janicek, Vice President at Skender Construction, said Skender is strategically building a team experienced in managing healthcare projects of the future, as providers are approaching the built environment with efficiency and the patient experience in mind.
“Instead of building large replacement hospitals, providers are reinventing and remodeling their existing facilities to optimize patient satisfaction. Healthcare has become more localized, and is becoming more nimble to meet its patients’ changing needs. Our team is well-positioned to lead in this market, and we’re ready to help clients as they transform their industry,” he said.
