December News

Make it the best yet! 

December, 2021

It’s hard to believe that the year is rapidly coming to a close this week.  Many have taken this last week to spend extra time with their families and friends, while others are cranking hard to finish up projects before it’s quickly 2022!

As we reflect back on this year, we are grateful for so much.  An amazing team of Capitol associates, from Chicago down to IN and TN, and those that stay on the road travelling for our projects.  Our team has longevity working together and it is reflected by our satisfied, repeat clients.  Speaking of clients, we are grateful for a slew of long-time clients and new clients who have trusted us to bring their projects and visions to life.  It is a privilege to be providing our construction services to you.

Our team gave back a lot of time and treasure this year.  A holiday tradition, our Indy office made the holidays brighter for 67 foster children this month at The Villages of Indiana, a longtime partner of CCSI.  Our owners were also very generous with our team’s time and financial support throughout the year to those doing good in our community: Little Red Door Cancer Agency, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana, St. Mary’s Early Childhood Center, Marine Corp Scholarship Fund, and the Million Meal Movement.

Below are a few projects we completed in this last month. We are looking forward to what’s on the horizon for what appears to be a busy 2022.  Our wish for you is health and happiness in these last moments of 2021 and many blessings in the new year! We are grateful for each of you!

PANERA BREAD- Fulton, MD- 4,000 Sq. Ft.

Our national team accomplished another great ground-up Panera Bread project for developer, Lemek. This bakery/cafe in Fulton, MD is 4,000 square feet with a drive through and outdoor patio, in addition to plenty of cozy seating inside!  We have enjoyed doing projects for both Panera developers and corporate as the fast-casual concept continues to expand.  This project was designed by New York-based smartDesign Architecture.

TRUENORTH- Grayslake, IL- 4,200 Sq. Ft.

While our Chicago team has built many gas stations over the years, this was their first project for developer Truenorth Energy out of Ohio. The 4,200 square foot convenience store and fueling station was designed by PA- based Frank Ross Architects and will soon be operating in the suburb of Grayslake, IL. We look forward to more projects with the True North team!

PENN & BEECH- Columbus, OH- 2,100 Sq. Ft

We completed the 4th studio (one in IN, and 3 in OH) for our friends at Penn & Beech in the Short North area of Columbus, OH. The 2,800 square foot custom candle making studio was designed by OH-based Design Collective and offers a delightful experience for those of all ages. Nothing makes your home cozier around the holidays than your favorite scent burning!


Repeat clients is what our team thrives on!  We were fortunate to work with the Greenleaf Juicing Company on their second Indy-area location in the Nora Shops West, which will open just as folks are gearing up for a healthier new year! A third location is also under construction by our team in Carmel at Cool Creek Commons. In addition to juices, Greenleaf offers fresh bowls and salads.  Zionsville-based DesignPoint Architects works with the Greenleaf team on their fresh spaces.
