Reed Construction is pleased to announce that the firm has completed a 31,000-sf build-out for the new Illinois headquarters of Lafarge North America in Chicago.
In April 2012, Lafarge North America announced its headquarter relocation from Virginia to the Chicago area. The firm, represented by Jones Lang LaSalle, selected its new office space at 8700 W. Bryn Mawr in Chicago near O’Hare International Airport. Reed Construction was contracted to complete the full third floor build-out which included the construction of new open area work space, private offices, four conference rooms with videoconferencing capabilities and an executive conference boardroom.
“Lafarge specializes in cement, ready-mix concrete, gypsum wallboard, aggregates, asphalt, and related products which we incorporated throughout the interior of the space,” said Reed Construction’s Vice President Bryan Kreuger. “Lafarge Ductal concrete floor tile greets clients and staff at the reception area. Lafarge concrete is used throughout the office on countertops as well as a Ductal concrete lunchroom bar and reception desk. The space also features concrete wall finishes and DIRTT partitions for private offices and small conference rooms. In other words, the new offices creatively showcase Lafarge’s various products resulting in a modern, professional headquarter office.”
Kreuger was the project executive for Reed Construction and Steve Sandquist was the project manager. Partners by Design provided the architectural services. Jones Lang LaSalle also served as the owner’s representative. +
