Hoffman Estates, IL
This manufacturing plant is also used as a hi-tech showroom. All the production of the machined parts are manufactured in computerized, enclosed machines that can be monitored through large portions of glass. The objective of the project was to create an office space on the upper level of a new steel mezzanine structure with direct access to the manufacturing floor and a lounge/bar on the lower level to entertain visitors during exhibitions and tours of the facility. The primary challenge of the project was to design, bid, permit and construct the spaces in 19 weeks. With excellent coordination between the owner, RKG Design Group, their engineers, the general contractor, steel and miscellaneous metals subcontractors, the project was completed on-time and on-budget.
