Krusinski Construction Company (KCC) broke ground on a 112,505-square-foot building for School Health Corporation at 5600 Apollo Drive in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. School Health, the leading national, full-service provider of health supplies, services and solutions, will relocate its resources and staff to its new location from its existing space in Hanover Park, Illinois.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday, May 1, to mark the start of construction on School Health’s new distribution, shop and office facility. School Health owners, Rob and Susan Rogers, Scott Cormack, and executives, Melissa Agema and John Rooney, joined several of its employees in attendance along with the Village of Rolling Meadows and the project team—consultant, Trammell Crow Company; architect, Ware Malcomb; general contractors, Krusinski Construction Company and civil engineers, SpaceCo, Inc.
The new structure will include a two-story, 24,700-square-foot office space and a state-of-the-art warehouse. Operating with a fully integrated WMS pick and pack environment, the warehouse will feature a power-fed system solution conveyor, more than a dozen dock doors, a 32-foot CSH ceiling, LED lighting and modern material handling equipment to service more than 100,000 customer orders per year.
Following demolition of the existing building and completion of ground-up, precast construction, the new LEED-certified building will be centrally located among various retail restaurants and shopping centers, with very close proximity to Interstate 290 and Interstate 90 situated directly north. Project completion is slated for fall 2018.
