September News

Temps might be falling soon, but things are heating up! 

September, 2021

Coming off the heels of a historic Ryder Cup weekend, we are riding the optimism wave that the Americans were feeling after their big victory.  This month has been full of some amazing client events, golf outings, concerts, sporting events, and children attending school in person.  In addition, construction continues to be hot in more ways than one.  Many of our clients have taken their foot off the break and are saying “let’s go!”  We are working very efficiently on jobsites, getting as much weather-sensitive work done prior to the plants closing and winter conditions kick in. We are seeing new restaurants and concepts coming across our desks, which brings additional excitement.

All that being said, our team is being vigilant on communication of lead times and pricing with our clients and our subcontractors.  We cannot underemphasize the importance of that in our world right now.  Expectation setting is key, and we find that is bringing clients comfort and we are all working through any challenges together.

We are featuring a variety of projects from around the Midwest this month. More photos of our featured projects can be viewed on our facebook page. As always, if you’re interested in talking further about our work or a potential project, please contact Lauren Kriner!

Happy Fall, Y’all!!

COHATCH- Indianapolis, IN- 18,000 Sq. Ft.

The interest in co-working spaces is NOT slowing down! Ohio-based COHatch offers a membership where members get access to all locations around the country.  COHatch recently opened their second Indy-area location in the popular Broad Ripple area, transforming a former vacant church into an 18,000 square foot co-working environment with amenities galore.  Columbus-based TLA Architects was responsible for design, bringing the COHatch vision to life.  The natural light, variety of space sizes, and stellar location have contributed to the fast “sell out” at Broad Ripple.  Our team is currently working on a new COHatch in the Cincinnati suburb of Kenwood, as well as starting COHatch Zionsville as the third Indy location!

REGIONS BANK- Indianapolis, IN- 6,700 Sq. Ft.

Indy will soon have a new Regions branch to deposit those payday checks- in the northside’s Nora West Shoppes. While it pained us to replace the space of a former client, we are glad to have added a new tenant in the building we constructed eight years ago for landlord PK Partners. Regions now occupies the 6,700 SF endcap with a drive-thru and will open for business very soon. KY-based The Roberts Group designed this branch location. We have enjoyed working on dozens of projects for Regions and continue to grow our relationship!


Indianapolis, IN- 4,000 Sq. Ft

What a transformation 1025 E. 54th Street has undergone! The former home to a flooring company, the North American Hardware & Paint Association (NHPA) relocated their downtown Indy office north to become building owners. The 4,000 SF, two-story building received an entire interior remodel, the beauty courtesy of Parallel Design Group, new exterior windows and a full paint job. The NHPA team is anxious to get settled into their new home and has been a pleasure to work with!


Some people ask if we’d be interested in a “small” project…well, we do all types of work.  Indianapolis-based Sandor asked if we could do a facade remodel of their Romeoville, IL shopping center, Carrilon Court.  Facade renos can bring a lot of value to a shopping center, allow for rents to increase, and attract new tenants. Curb appeal matters!  Our Chicago team helped accomplish Sandor’s goal, and the improved Carrilon Court is looking better than ever!  Naperville-based Torch Architecture provided design changes on this project.

CALIBER COLLISION- Des Moines, IA- 12,600 Sq. Ft.

Capitol Construction’s Chicago office recently completed a Caliber Collision interior fit out project in Des Moines, IA. The 12,600 sq. ft. building features an office area and garage and was designed by TX-based Cross Architects. We also improved the exterior with metal work, painting and parking lot work. This is the fifth Caliber Collision project completed by Capitol.
