Wright Heerema Architects has recently completed a build-to-suit office building in Oak Park, Ill. for Turano Baking Company. The 25,000-sf building includes office space and a test kitchen.

The new HQ space is across the street from its previous office location and its production facility. Moving the office allows the company to remain close to the production facility but also have dedicated office space, meeting space, and a test kitchen.

 

Turano test kitchen and conference room

 

The building’s first floor houses office, conference, and support spaces. The second floor comprises executive offices, addition conference space, and the test kitchen. The test kitchen is a full-service commercial kitchen with an adjacent presentation area to serve tested recipes. The conference space can be connected to or separated from the test kitchen through an operable glass partition. Company branding is included throughout the building, including a large logo on the exterior of the building, a painted logo on an interior wall, and various pieces of art depicting the family company through the years.

Wright Heerema partnered with Executive Construction (general contractor), TGRWA (structural engineer), and Salas O’Brien (MEP/FP engineer).
