Pacific Construction has completed the design+build of a mixed-use corporate headquarters and production facility for nVenia, a Duravant company, at 750 N. Wood Dale Road in Wood Dale, Ill., with the added challenge of ongoing production during the construction process.
“At a time when many companies are experiencing unexpected delays to their work due to projects and production, Pacific was able to prioritize installation of equipment and non-intrusive strategies to build out this project with minimal impact to the client’s business,” said Bart Friedman, CEO of Pacific Construction. “We worked closely with Bridge Industrial, the owners of the building, to create a world-class facility that serves the needs of nVenia today and into the future.”
The project involved two phases, one which prioritized the buildout of production areas including installation of manufacturing and finishing equipment, and the second which featured a complex buildout of office space within the existing structure without significantly impacting ongoing production.
“Completing a full design+build around a functioning production floor is not easy task,” said Nick Siegel, partner at Bridge Industrial, owner of the property. “We worked closely with Pacific to prioritize installations of equipment so production could continue, especially during a time when disruptions on the floor could have significant impact for our tenant.”
The resulting facility allows nVenia to seamlessly consolidate multiple brands and operations in Wood Dale, with the ability to accommodate additional staff through the creation of new jobs. The facility is designed to support 300 employees.
“nVenia’s new home is a world-class facility with a state-of-the-art Customer Experience Center, outfitted with demonstration, lab and training capabilities designed to welcome customers and guests to engage with the complete nVenia family of packaging brands,” said Thurman Melson, President of nVenia.
