Capt. James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center, North Chicago, IL
Scope of Work: Troop provided comprehensive construction services to erect and install full perimeter custom fencing for safety modifications to the existing parking garage infrastructure at the 3rd and 4th decks. Additional custom fencing, panels, and gates were installed contiguously from Level 1 to Level 4 in the adjacent Building 133 open stairwell.
As the Prime Contractor, Troop self‐performed labor and carpentry, and provided full time onsite supervision, quality control, safety, and project management.

The phases consisted of phase 1: custom fabrication of fencing, posts, and bumper guards with installations in the parking garage, and phase 2: custom fabrication and installation of welded wire mesh panels and columns in the stairwell.
Definable features of work:
- Selective Demolition
