Posted by: ZS on November 30, 2015

In June 2015, ZS was retained by the University of Chicago to perform a comprehensive facade condition assessment for 28 historic/gothic buildings located at the Main Quadrangle of the University’s iconic campus. The University of Chicago’s Main Quadrangle gothic buildings were built between 1895 and 1931 and were modeled after the English Gothic style of architecture used at Oxford, complete with towers, spires, cloisters, and gargoyles. The buildings were designed by renowned Chicago architects including Cobb, Coolidge, Rutan, and Holabird & Root. To date, ZS completed the assessment of 15 buildings with the remaining buildings scheduled for completion by summer of 2016.
