Presbyterian Homes – Evanston
Since 1999, EEA has been involved with the Evanston Presbyterian Homes campus, assisting with master planning, utility extension design, roadway reconfiguration, and an expanded stormwater detention basin. As part of the Master Plan, EEA reconstructed the main entrance drive, adding turn lanes onto Golf Road, along with campus parking and individual garages. EEA consultants also provided civil engineering site designs for Two and Three Arbor, independent living buildings that cater to senior residents, as well as assisted with garage additions at the Trinity Place cottage units. To create a more efficient flow of visitors and patients, EEA more recently assisted with modifications to the entrance, drop-off area and parking for the McGraw Care Center—an emergency medical facility that supports the campus residents. In the fall of 2011, a multi-year Westminster Cottage replacement project was begun on the west end of the campus.
EEA has played a large role in facilitating the application and securing of permits through IDOT, MWRD, IEPA and the City of Evanston across all projects on the campus. Our consultants worked closely with Presbyterian Homes officials to illustrate infrastructure improvements intended to accommodate future projects. Additionally, EEA and Presbyterian Homes have heavily involved both facility and nearby residents to ensure community-wide needs are met.
