DARIEN -- Premier Design + Build Group has broken ground on a 153,000-square foot speculative warehouse for Chicago-based developer Sterling Bay.
The site will include 161 parking stalls on the nine-acre site, which has extensive frontage on I-55. It is located at 1035 South Frontage Road, south of Interstate 55 near Cass Avenue. PREMIER expects the building to be completed and ready for occupancy by November 2019.
The building is designed for maximum flexibility. It will be constructed of precast concrete and steel, with 30' clear height ceilings. Its design features 31 exterior truck doors and two drive-in doors and includes an Early Suppression Fast Response (ESFR) sprinkler system.
Carl Graves of Itasca-based Premier will serve as project manager, working with Gary Schlinger as superintendent. Other key members of PREMIER's project team include Ron Nelsen, senior vice president/field operations for the firm's Midwest division, project executive Joseph Ahrens, and senior vice president/Midwest market leader Michael Long.
