Summit Completes Construction of Industrial Building in Schiller Park
General Contractor, Summit Design + Build, has recently completed the adaptive reuse of an industrial building for EJ Basler Company in Schiller Park. The project included the selective demolition and renovation of an existing industrial warehouse to make way for a new state-of-the-art, 33,000 square foot manufacturing facility.
EJ Basler, a manufacturer of precision machined parts and components, has been a mainstay in the Schiller Park community for over 50 years. The company’s clients include leading companies and distribution centers in North America, Europe, and Asia. Toying with the idea of expansion for many years, EJ Basler jumped at the opportunity to renovate and expand upon the underutilized industrial building located next door to their campus. Along with managing the selective demolition of the existing facility, Summit Design + Build also oversaw the new construction of the 33,000 square foot facility with a connecting corridor. The renovation and new construction also included the installation of a new all-glass façade, structural steel reinforcement, sunlight paneling and Ecosteel insulated metal wall and roof panels, with pre-finished exteriors.
Amstadter Architects served as the project architect for the EJ Basler project.
