January News

Well…that went fast!

January, 2024

Despite the dreary gray days of January, the month sure went fast!  Our newsletter is proof that more happened this month than Taylor Swift making it to the Super Bowl during her “first season” in the NFL!

We wrapped up the year receiving a big honor from our safety consultant, Safety Resources, being named a “Safe Contractor of the Year”.  Only 5 out of 70 contractors in their region were awarded this honor. Thanks to our Safety Director Todd and his team’s consistent efforts to keep our team, our contractors and vendors going home safely.

Our team has finished a variety of projects around the country and is also pressing to get some exciting new projects off the ground when weather allows.

Wishing you the occasional blue skies and sunshine during the winter months.  And…GO CHIEFS!

PARADISE GRILLS- Indianapolis, IN- 4,000 Sq. Ft.

Cold weather have you dreaming of what warmer temps could bring? It was our pleasure to bring the world leader in grill islands and island bars, Paradise Grills, to the Midwest as they open their first store The Fashion Mall at Keystone tomorrow! The nearly 4,000 square foot gallery showcases beautiful options for outdoor living, and the knowledgeable team can help you build your dream space. Check out their amazing options in a beautiful space designed by Loring Design Group!

DIAMONDS DIRECT- Oak Brook, IL- 6,100 Sq. Ft.

We know…the holidays just ended and gift giving is not yet on your mind. However, Valentine’s Day is just two weeks away, and when love is in the air, it’s hard not to think of diamonds! Our team just completed another new Diamonds Direct, this time a 6,100 square foot ground-up gallery on an outlot of Oakbrook Center in the Chicago suburbs. The growing jewelry showroom continues to add new locations- we have two more under construction!  Little Diversified Architectural Co. designed this location.

BURN BOOT CAMP- Fishers, IN- 6,500 Sq. Ft.

We are so proud of and happy for our friends at Burn Boot Camp Fishers, who are helping people kick off their 2024 fitness goals in their new space that opened this month at The Link at Fishers District. Their new space lets so much light in, as well as accommodates more of their loyal followers, in 6,500 SF designed by Schott Design. Make sure to check out their grand opening specials and get moving with BURN this year!

PANERA BREAD- Waldorf, MD- 4,100 Sq. Ft.

This time of year seems to bring a lot of gray skies…the upside? Perfect weather for hot coffee, sweet pastries, the best breads, and warm soups to soothe the soul. It was our pleasure to complete another project for Panera franchisee, Lemek, building a new 4,100 square foot cafe with drive-thru in the Maryland suburb of Waldorf, just 23 miles from D.C. This cafe was also designed by NY-based smartDESIGN Architecture, who we have also worked with on previous projects. We love helping clients grow around the country!

CEC- Franklin, TN- 13,000 Sq. Ft.

Our Nashville team has started off the New Year finishing up office projects around their City. It was a pleasure to expand and remodel the national engineering firm Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. into 13,000 square feet at Franklin’s Dover Centre. The project was led by the Cushman & Wakefield project management team and designed by SW Design Group.

I TRE MORI- Fishers, IN- 2,200 Sq. Ft.

You can’t just find authentic Italian food anywhere! It was a pleasure to add new space to the 5-star rated I Tre Mori in our backyard of Fishers, as their demand has grown since their opening just a few years ago. With the 2,200 square foot addition, designed by Curran Architecture, the restaurant now features a bar and several more tables and TV’s, perfect for a quick bite, date, or group. If you haven’t yet experienced the freshest Italian cuisine, put I Tre Mori on your list!

ITALIAN HOMEMADE- Chicago, IL- 4,500 Sq. Ft.

Cold days call for comfort food and carbs! The Italian Homemade Company is now open in Chicago’s West Loop and has created an authentic menu that includes freshly made pasta, gnocchi, and other Italian favorites. Customers will enjoy gourmet Italian street food, focusing on Italy’s central regions. This 4,500 square foot store designed by Warren Johnson is the company’s first expansion outside California.

PROLOGIS- LaVergne, TN- 63,200 Sq. Ft.

Although not all projects have complex features or finishes, our team still completes work that is very useful for Landlord needs. Prologis has been a long-time client, and our TN team recently finished a make-ready space in Centrepoint Park that included paint, flooring, new millwork, plumbing improvements, warehouse cleaning and floor prep in a 60,000 SF warehouse and 3,200 SF office.

PACE- Indianapolis, IN- 12,500 Sq. Ft.

As the demand for services of the agency PACE (Public Advocates in Community Re-Engagement) continues to grow, the PACE team engaged with JS Held to help them navigate finding a larger space that could be improved to serve their client base. It was our honor to complete another United Way project, helping PACE relocate closer to Downtown Indy into a 12,500 square foot office, designed by the talented team at Parallel Design Group. Those working and volunteering with PACE are thrilled with their new space, allowing them to more effectively help individuals and families impacted by the justice system in leading productive lives. Thank you to furniture provider Lammco for sharing great photos!

STEWART TITLE- Murfreesboro, TN- 1,500 Sq. Ft.

Our Nashville team recently completed their fourth project for the nationwide Stewart Title, building out a new 1,500 square foot office for their team in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We love the natural light and open ceiling concept that design firm ASD|SKY helped the Stewart team take advantage of. Repeat clients is how we continue to grow in each of our markets.
