"We were able to provide a design solution within the site constraints that allowed Chicago Tube & Iron to remain at their current location, helping retain employees," Jeff Mertens, senior project manager at Opus Design, LLC is quoted in the release.
According to the release:
Opus also updated the warehouse with an exterior insulation finishing system and remodeled existing areas of the facility. Interior remodeling included updating bathrooms and a break room, modernizing the front entry and replacing six overhead doors. During the project, mechanical and irrigation systems were incorporated and prominent signage added to the front entry and south end of the facility.
Said Donald R. McNeeley, president & CEO of Chicago Tube & Iron, “With the dramatic improvement this investment brings in our throughput capacity, we are in a stronger position than ever to service our customers and support new business growth across our markets in the upper Midwest.”
Opus Design Build, LLC was the contractor and Opus AE Group, LLC was responsible for structural and architectural design. MFRA, Inc. performed civil engineering and landscaping and Hallberg Engineering provided mechanical and electrical design services.
