Project Description


Continental Painting was chosen as the painting contractor for the original Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois Corporate Headquarters as well as the 24-floor vertical expansion. For the expansion project, we applied custom metallic finishes and elastomeric coatings throughout the 52-story public elevator and lobby atriums, as well as high-performance and epoxy coatings on the structural steel and fire stairs.

In the original 1.3 million square-foot, 30-story corporate headquarters building, Continental Painting provided all of the painting, special coating, and wallcovering services for the base-building and tenant build-out work. Continental Painting also completed the pedestrian bridge across lower Randolph Street.
