Eidco Construction Retained to Oversee Installation of Fire Sprinkler Systems at Illinois Skilled Nursing Facilities

Illinois Department of Public Health Requires Sprinkler Installation By August 2013

Belleville, Ill. (June 26, 2012) – Eidco Construction, one of the fastest growing general contractors in the United States, today announced that it has been retained to oversee the installation of fire sprinkler systems at two skilled nursing facilities in Illinois.

Led by Senior Project Manager Bradley Peterson, a team from Eidco will oversee the projects at Alton Rehabilitation & Nursing Center, located at 3523 Wickenhauser Avenue in Alton, and Midwest Rehabilitation & Respiratory Center, located at 727 North 17th Street in Belleville.

The projects are a response to a recent mandate from the Illinois Department of Public Health, which requires the installation of fire sprinkler systems at all skilled nursing facilities in the state by August 2013.

"With 20 percent of the nation's skilled nursing facilities in need of fire sprinkler systems, Eidco has carved out a niche in this growing business sector," said Chez Eider, CEO of Eidco Construction. "We're committed to growing with the needs of our clients, so it was natural for us to create a separate division to service this arena. As facility owners work to safeguard their residents and ensure that their buildings meet newly established government mandates, we're happy to lend our expertise."
