World’s premier infrastructure firm AECOM announced that it has completed the first phase of the transformation of Chicago’s McCormick Place into an alternate care facility for patients considered COVID-19 positive. Fourteen days after the receipt of a Notice to Proceed, the first 500 beds of the McCormick Place Alternate Care Facility have accepted its first patients. AECOM was responsible for building an integrated team to fast-track the delivery of Owner Representative services, ensuring a fully operational facility capable of safely caring for COVID-19 positive patients in an effort to reduce burden on the local healthcare systems. To enable healthcare workers and supporting staff with the ability to care for low acuity patients both safely and effectively, the first phase of the McCormick Place Alternate Care Facility included access to medical supplies, central and satellite pharmacies, medical staffing, security service, janitorial service, food service, communications networks, electronic medical records, and negative-air buildouts.

AECOM began to support this essential work on April 1, 2020 under the direction of the City of Chicago, working alongside the Illinois National Guard and the Army Corps of Engineers. The next phase of 500 beds is slated to be complete by the end of April.
