Englewood Construction has been tapped for six new projects throughout the Midwest, including two in Chicago. All projects are slated for completion between now and the end of the year.

“We’re continuing to win a wide range of projects, including additional work for Advance Auto Parts, which supports the trend we started to see earlier this year for new auto parts stores,” said William Di Santo, president of Lemont, Ill.-based Englewood Construction. “And with the multiple open remodel jobs we’re starting for Noodles & Company, it’s obvious the fast-casual restaurant sector is still going strong.”

In the Chicago area, Englewood Construction has been hired for the expansion and renovation of the Children’s Creative Learning Center (CCLC) located at 446 E. Ontario St. in the Onterie Center in downtown Chicago. CCLC provides employer-sponsored early childhood education and care.

Phase I of the project includes renovating the existing 2,103-square-foot space and expanding the school into adjacent space on the main floor of the Onterie Center, a mixed-use tower that includes luxury apartments and first-floor retail. Englewood will add new classrooms and indoor playground features to the facility. Upon completion, the CCLC will occupy 4,102 square feet.

Phase II of the project will focus on renovating the school’s playground. ADA Architects, Inc., of Lakewood, Ohio, is the architect. CCLC’s parent company, Knowledge Universe, is a global education company with a network of more than 3,000 education locations. The CCLC location at Onterie Center is one of two in the Chicago area. The other location is in Lisle, Ill.
