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.

Local 399 Training Facility Chicago, Illinois

CLIENT

The International Union of Operating Engineers

ARCHITECT

Valerio Dewalt Train Architects

ROLE

Construction Manager

The International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) is a labor union representing men and women engaged in the operation and maintenance within industrial, commercial, and institutional facilities. The Local 399 chapter is based in Chicago and represents more than 10,000 workers in Illinois and northwest Indiana. When the Local 399 began the process of renovating a facility for their training, ICI was hired. The ICI team’s scope of work consisted of repurposing an existing warehouse into an educational training center. The building is located in Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood along the Chicago River. ICI completely transformed the 27,600 square foot building by adding a second-floor structure with a mezzanine. Classrooms and training spaces were constructed, [CONT.’D]

Corus Bank Office and Data Center Location Confidential

CLIENT

Corus Bank

ARCHITECT

Yas Architecture, LLC

ROLE

Construction Manager

ICI completed a new 44,000 square foot Operations Center for Corus Bank. The project included a back-of-house operations facility, corporate offices and a Data Center. Having outgrown their existing location and finding the electrical system was no longer able to function at an acceptable level, it was clear a new location was necessary. Diligent coordination with the owner’s vendors was key to the success of the project. The owner’s direct vendors included an FF&E contract with work stations for over 100 employees, a high-tech security system and the Data Center equipment. The Data Room and Communications Rooms had to be turned over to the contractor installing the servers by prior to project completion. This date was critical because the data from the existing facility needed to be downloaded to the new facility before the air conditioning became an issue. For security purposes, the project is located in a discrete industrial park. However, once inside, glass conference rooms, alumavault acoustic ceilings and offices featuring maple wainscoat and glazed walls greet visitors. Office spaces were mocked up during the rough stage with MEP locations for bank approval prior to proceeding with construction. This allowed for easy changes prior to installation of the finishes.

ROLE

General Contracting

The Chancery of the Consulate General of the Netherlands is located on the 26th Floor of the 303 E. Wacker building in Chicago. The build out was completed in two phases to allow the Dutch Consulate to remain open throughout construction. The scope of work included reconfiguring conference rooms and offices, renovating the lobby, adding new lighting, and installing new carpeting and wall coverings within the 7,800 SF space. During construction many security features, including a new mantrap, were added or enhanced and technology systems were updated throughout the space. Additionally, the entryway to the The Consulate’s internal offices were upgraded with new millwork and three back-lit glass artwork panels were installed to reflect the essence of the Netherlands.
