Summit Design + Build Completes Construction of Women-Forward Clubhouse
Chief, a private women’s network, opens first Chicago clubhouse
Summit Design + Build, has completed the build-out of a 14,000 square foot clubhouse for Chief. Chief, launched in 2019, is a private network for women who are C-level executives or rising VP’s. The company was founded to help drive women into positions of power and keep them there.
The clubhouse is located on the second and third floors of 1040 W. Fulton, a newly constructed, heavy timber building that is also home to Summit Design + Build’s new headquarters. The fit-out of the space features multiple conference rooms, a speaking area, a bar and lounge area, as well as a roof top deck and green roof space. The clubhouse will be used to help women make connections through peer groups, workshops, sponsored events and dinners. The clubhouse is the first Chicago location for Chief, which also has clubhouses in New York and Los Angeles.
Chicago-based GREC Architects served as the project architect.
