Salud Center

A 101-unit, 140,000-square-foot residential building in South Chicago at 3039 E. 91st Street, providing affordable housing for low-income seniors. As occupied rehab construction, Skender and POAH coordinated the temporary relocation of residents while individual units were renovated. Careful construction sequencing and logistics ensured safe, smooth delivery and minimal interference with residents’ lives. Working in five-day construction cycles, Skender turned around six units per week, including new flooring, lighting and plumbing trim in-unit bathrooms and kitchens. Skender also renovated the common areas and completed a full upgrade of the boiler room equipment, replacement of the façade exterior insulation finishing system, and a new thermoplastic polyolefin roof.
