A Look Back: ECC Health and Life Sciences Building Celebrates 5 Years

A Look Back: ECC Health and Life Sciences Building Celebrates 5 Years

In December 2011, Lamp Incorporated completed the construction of the new Elgin Community College Health and Life Sciences Building. The 160,450 square foot building was completed 6 months ahead of schedule and $8 million under budget.

The building includes state-of-the-art healthcare training facilities, including classrooms and labs for the nursing and dental programs. The facility achieved LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification. It also earned several other awards and honors, including:

  • Wisconsin American Institute of Architects (AIA) Honor Award
  • Construction Industry Service Corp. (CISCO) Pride in Construction Award – New Construction – Suburbs (above $20 million) Category
  • Featured in the 2014 Architectural and Interior Design Edition of Learning by Design
  • Outstanding Design by American School and University Magazine in their 2014 Educational Interiors Showcase

Lamp Incorporated acted as Construction Manager on the project. Kluber, Inc. was the Project Architect firm.

Paul Dawson, ECC’s Managing Director of Construction Projects, said, “I’ve known Lamp Incorporated since 1992 when I worked with Earl Lamp on the Visual and Performing Arts Center. They are the most honest contractor that I’ve ever dealt with. ‘Transparency’ is the word I’d like to use for them.” Dawson was impressed with the cost savings of 20 percent on the budget for the Health and Life Sciences building. “That money allowed us to do other things on our referendum,” said Dawson.
