Conor Commercial Real Estate, a member of The McShane Companies, has announced it is developing a 145,200 sq. ft. build-to-suit on behalf of AMS Mechanical Systems, Inc. (AMS) in the Union Pointe industrial business park in south suburban Woodridge, IL.
AMS is a full-service mechanical contracting firm serving the chemical, food, process, manufacturing and power industries for more 50 years. The company will relocate from their current Burr Ridge location into the new facility in Woodridge upon its slated delivery in late December 2016.
Currently under construction on a 10.6-acre parcel, the new building will feature a 31,000 sq. ft., two-story corporate office component with an elegant atrium lobby, open and private offices, conference rooms and an employee break room. The remainder of the building will be outfitted to support the firm’s warehouse and manufacturing requirements with a 32′ clear height, five dock doors, seven drive-in doors and an ESFR sprinkler system.
The news release says the precast concrete facility will boast a contemporary exterior design with storefront windows and an attractive steel canopy at the main entrance. It will also accommodate parking for 14 trailers and 148 vehicles.
“We are thrilled to welcome AMS to Union Pointe,” Brian Quigley, executive vice-president of Conor Commercial Real Estate, said in a statement. “AMS considered several locations for their new facility but decided on Union Pointe due to its outstanding highway access, prominent visibility and the pro-business environment within the Village of Woodridge – all of which have been drivers of the park’s tremendous success.”
McShane Construction Company and Ware Malcomb are providing the design/build construction services for the project.
