PREMIER Design + Build Group joined client, Bridge Development Partners, to launch a new warehouse project in suburban Chicago. The 218,560-square-foot spec building, located at 6855 W. 65th Street in Bedford Park, Illinois, is slated for shell delivery this December.

“It is always a unique experience doing these types of redevelopments, due to the conditions that can be found on site, but the team we have put together always reacts fantastically to changes and modifications, and truly understands the impact to cost and schedule,” said PREMIER president Alan Zocher.

PREMIER is managing design and build services for the project, which will be completed in two phases. The first phase involves demolition of a large, single-story building. During the second phase, PREMIER will oversee construction of the new warehouse. The 32-foot clear height building will include 33 exterior truck docks, two drive-in doors and an ESFR fire sprinkler system. The 12-acre site will accommodate parking for 180 cars and 44 trailers.

“We are thrilled to have a building coming up here,” said Bedford Park village president David R. Brady, who joined PREMIER and Bridge Development Partners at the groundbreaking. “The former building wasn’t in the best shape, so it was a great opportunity for the village.”

Kyle Meier of PREMIER will serve as assistant project manager, working with Zach Gadomski as superintendent. Other key members of PREMIER’s project team include project manager Samantha Skopek, project executive Joseph Ahrens, and senior vice president/Midwest market leader Michael Long.

Bridge Development Partners, LLC is the developer. Cornerstone Architects Ltd. is providing architectural design services, Swift Structural Design is providing structural engineering services and Spaceco is providing civil engineering services. Darwin Realty is handling leasing for the property.
