You may have noticed that the construction activity at the new medical office building at DePaul Medical Center has stopped over the past few weeks.  I reached out to Bon Secours and got an update.

Because of the soil composition and the requirements of the doctors who will be tenants, it was determined that the piles that were being driven would not be able to handle the load.  The plans are being redone as we speak.  The depth of the piles will likely increase from 45ft to 90ft.

Pile driving is expected to resume on September 26th.

    Doesn’t instill much confidence in the integrity of the construction that they are just finding this out.

    Well, it’s a month later and still no construction re-started as promised. Makes one wonder if there is more to this than pile depth issues.
