Morgan / Harbour Construction has completed an office and lab space renovation on behalf of Riddell Sports at 1700 W. Higgins Road in Des Plaines, Illinois. Riddell Sports is the leading manufacturer of football helmets, football pads, football helmet reconditioning and related football sports equipment. The firm relocated its corporate headquarters from neighboring Rosemont.

The recently completed project features 19,640 square feet of interior office buildout on the 5th floor, including 3,325 square feet of testing laboratory space based upon converting a portion of the existing parking garage into Riddell’s workshop and storage area. The space modernization included new partitions, doors and ceilings as well as upgraded finishes and new furnishings to include a faux grass breakroom feature wall, solid surface countertops, luxury vinyl tile flooring, custom accent area rug, floor-to-ceiling glass boardroom storefront and entryway with herculite doors.

“It was a pleasure to work with Riddell Sports and property manager, CBRE, on this project,” said Amy DePinto, project manager for Morgan / Harbour. “The newly renovated space will allow for a smooth relocation and provide Riddell with a modern office environment for their operations.”

Morgan / Harbour also updated the 5th floor common areas and a vacant suite entrance to Riddell Sports’ offices. A new mechanical, electrical and plumbing system was also replaced and updated. Andy MacMillan was the team leader for Morgan / Harbour with DePinto as the project manager and Dan Tabor as project superintendent. Partners by Design provided architectural services and Jon Springer served as the property manager for CBRE.
