The Heat is On…

July, 2023

Did someone turn up the thermostat around here? Although it happens every year, the dog days of summer bring record temps that we will need to remember the feel of come January! Our summer interns will be wrapping up their learning experiences over the next few weeks, while some younger kids are heading back to school even before the month turns.

We recently wrapped up several sizable projects that have evolved since their inception.  Our work for Indiana Donor Network has been submitted for several awards, and we are very proud of of the impact that group has on saving lives, and their massive expansion is reflective of that.   Our Starbucks team also continues to stay quite busy, with one newly complete, and another 6 turnkey developer projects underway in IN and IL!

Both our Indy and Chicago teams are also excited about welcoming four new Project Managers amongst our offices this month!  It is key to have great people in position to carry out all of the projects in the pipeline.

May the end of your summer be filled with endless amounts of sunshine, starry nights, fair food and your favorite things!

INDIANA DONOR NETWORK- Indianapolis, IN- 67,000 Sq. Ft.

We are thrilled to finally share the transformation that has evolved for the new Indiana Donor Network headquarters on Indy’s NW side! Nothing says freedom like the gift of life, the mission of IDN’s growing, dedicated team, coordinating organ and tissue donation and transplantation throughout the State. After acquiring a 1970’s four-story office building several years ago for their corporate administrative offices, IDN brought on the design team of Rottmann Collier Architects to re-envision the 58,000 square foot building. After initial collaboration of the IDN and design teams, Capitol was brought in as the construction partner early in the process to assist the project’s evolution. The result is now a breathtaking nearly 67,000 square foot iconic headquarters, with a 5-story addition that includes a rooftop terrace overlooking the City. The new space offers more flexibility for the team, but more importantly, room to grow with the demands of donation. It was truly an honor to work on this impactful project!

BAM COMPANIES- Carmel, IN- 12,600 Sq. Ft.

It was an privilege to work with growing real estate firm BAM Capital on their headquarter relocation to Carmel, Indiana. BAM’s ownership is laser focused on their people and providing an exceptional work environment. Our team partnered with Relocation Strategies and OMS Architecture to create their 12,600 SF 2nd floor office, that includes a gym and drool-worthy breakroom. We look forward to working with BAM on their next expansion, starting soon!


Our Chicago team finished up a beautiful 9,500 SF office buildout for CTS Cunningham Commodities in the suburb of Itasca. They collaborated with Gillespie Design Group, Vertical Interior Design Studio and Rieke Interiors. Office projects in the suburbs continue to be abundant and our team is ready to help with more moves.

COMO AESTHETICS- Westfield, IN- 1,856 Sq. Ft.

Inspired by the beauty and serenity of Italy’s Lake Como, med spa COMO Aesthetics opened this week in the growing community of Westfield in the Harmony development at 146th and Ditch! From facials, to injectables, brows and lashes, Como offers all the services that are in high demand for beauty maintenance and improvement.

PANERA BREAD- Frederick, MD- 4,300 Sq. Ft.

Panera Bread has been a longtime client of both our Indy & Chicago teams, and we recently travelled to Frederick, MD to build a new ground-up Panera cafe with a drive-thru. The 4,300 squre foot bakery and restaurant is opening next week in the growing suburb and was designed by NY-based smartDESIGN Architecture. Our team is underway with another Panera in Waldorf, MD. Panera has evolved with client desires, offering advance ordering online, via the app, or drive-thru.

STARBUCKS- Fishers, IN- 2,225 Sq. Ft.

On Monday, a highly anticipated new Starbucks will open along the busy SR37 corridor in Fishers, Indiana. Sitting on the busy thoroughfare with access from Publishers Drive at 131st, MI-based Elia Group developed the project designed by the local Curran Architecture. The 2,225 SF cafe features a drive-thru, outdoor patio, and all of your favorite bevis. Our team built the shell and interior, and our near “twin” project with the same team will open in September in Noblesville. See you Monday, Fishers!

FERGUSON- Indianapolis, IN- 50,000 Sq. Ft.

While you might not see our team playing as much in the industrial space as office, we have the expertise to complete projects of many sizes. Our ground-up group just added on 50,000 square feet to a warehouse for Ferguson on Indy’s southside. The precast 32′ clear height addition, designed by Noblesville based Peterson Architecture, created a loading dock ramp and eight doors. Our team will be travelling to Texas for a 25,000 square foot warehouse renovation this month.

LOVESAC- Georgetown, TX- 2,100 Sq. Ft.

Weekends are for shopping! Lovesac continues to expand their footprint in the best markets, now operating at the open-air Wolf Ranch Town Center in Georgetown, TX. This was our Chicago team’s 11th project with Lovesac, designed in conjunction with Onyx Creative.
