CLIENT

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants

ARCHITECT

Aria Group Architects

ROLE

Construction Manager

In November 2019, ICI completed on a new flagship location for Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants in the former Esquire Theater in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Cooper’s Hawk took over the space after Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse shuttered the location. ICI was retained for the remodel due to our existing relationship with the restauranteur and familiarity with the building; having completed a remodel of the space for Del Frisco’s just one year prior. The tri-level 24,000 square foot space includes polished wood wall panels and floors, touches of brass and grey metal and a stunning chandelier centered within the space. The restaurant includes a three-story wine tower, retail space and an open kitchen. Construction within the urban location and inside the iconic Esquire Theater presented several challenges. For instance, the building has no service elevator so anything brought to the second or third floor had to move up the stairs or be hoisted in from the outside. [CONT.’D]

ARCHITECT

ROLE

Construction Manager

The Mariano’s Fresh Market in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood was built within a development on a site that had been vacant since 2005 due to a fire that destroyed the existing Dominick’s. The development is called 3030 North Broadway and is a 260,000 square foot new mixed-use, multi-story retail development that also houses a fitness center, two levels of decked parking totaling 245 parking spaces and the 7,500 square feet of small retail stores on the ground level. ICI was contracted to build-out the 73,000 square foot Mariano’s Fresh Market, occupying both the first and second levels. The development marked ICI’s third Mariano’s store; having completed a ground up store in Orland Park, Illinois and the build-out of the Ravenswood store. ICI went on to build another new construction store in Lombard, Illinois. The development opened in summer 2016 and transformed this formerly longvacant site into a pedestrian-friendly “town square” dynamic.

Additionally, our team coordinated, expedited and managed the permitting process for more than 15 municipal permits. Lastly, ICI coordinated the burial of overhead cabling.

Daniel L. Goodwin Hall of Business [CONT.’D] Lisle, Illinois

[CONT.’D] The design intent was to deliver educational with transparency and provide access to interactive learning for the entire student body. The design also creates interdepartmental synergies with cutting edge teaching spaces. Despite being the largest classroom building on campus, the facility has seamlessly connected with the existing environment through a full renovation of the central quad. New walkways, landscaping, lighting and rain gardens allow the quad to serve as a central gathering place on campus. ICI led the extensive preconstruction effort for the project and worked side-by-side with the University and campus architect, DLR Group, on cost control measures to bring the project within budget parameters. Construction began in the spring of 2014 and was delivered to the University in the fall of 2015.

IRi Headquarters and Data Center Chicago, Illinois

CLIENT

IRi

ARCHITECT

Valerio Dewalt Train

ROLE

Construction Manager

Early in our relationship with this client, ICI remodeled the interior of two, six-story, 1920’s manufacturing buildings to serve as IRi’s corporate headquarters. The two buildings, which we connected via a skybridge, total 229,000 square feet. ICI subsequently renovated the corporation’s 150,000 square feet building for the second time; creating a new 1st floor lobby and conference center, new work spaces on the 2nd thru 5th floors and a new client center and executive offices on the 6th floor. In addition to this work, new roof top units were placed and the basement was re-configured. Because the building is a timber structure, fire safety precautions were reviewed regularly and evacuation routes for employees were updated for each construction phase. ICI also performed the site survey, preliminary demolition and all construction services required for the installation of this 15,000 square foot data center, which could be accessed from both national and international locations. Upon completion of the required demolition, ICI worked with the MEP and structural engineers to facilitate the installation of the new data center. Features of the data center included a redundant cooling tower system, a dual grid, primary power system with generator backup, and raised floor system for the network fiber optic system, cooling and power supply.
