Meridian Design Build recently broke ground on a 67,080-square-foot build-to-suit for Traffic Control & Protection on a 9.5-acre site within Abbott Land & Investment’s Blue Heron Business Park in Bartlett, Illinois.
The location for the new building appealed to the company due to its ability to accommodate an outside storage yard, a key element of Traffic Control and Protection’s operations.
The new facility will include a 10,000-square-foot office/employee facilities area, a 13,000-square-foot sign shop/silk screen area, a barricade shop, and seven interior vehicle maintenance bays. Construction at the site is well underway with occupancy scheduled for year-end 2016.
Harris Architects was selected by Traffic Control & Protection to provide architectural and structural design services. Mackie Consultants is providing civil design services for the project.
Dan Flanagan, of Flanagan Realty, represented Traffic Control & Protection in the selection and acquisition of the site and coordinated overall planning/approval efforts for the project.
