Randolph Place Residences Lobby Renovation

In this instance, Mintropy has the task of doing construction drawings for approval and construction administration for a lobby renovation. The lobby itself covered 2,400 square feet and included ceiling and door replacement as well as the relocation of the reception desk. Entirely new areas needed to be developed to make better use of the available space. Mintropy broke down the delivery of this project into three phases:

Phase 1

Phase 1 dealt with our background research and schematic designs, which the client approved upon inspection. Our team also performed numerous site-visits to familiarize them with current measurements and existing conditions.

Phase 2

Phase 2 saw Mintropy producing permit drawings and submitting them for approval. We used these drawings to obtain the demolition and building permits necessary to facilitate the job.

Phase 3

Phase 3 utilized Mintropy’s skill with the permit application process in an administrative capacity. This process included the details of submittals, RFI’s Pay Apps. Mintropy’s finalized drawings conformed to the guidelines outlined in the regulations provided by the City of Chicago.
