The Missner Group has been selected for a 78,700-square-foot build-out in Mount Prospect for JAS Forwarding Worldwide, a private international freight forwarder and logistics provider.

Construction will also include the addition of 13 exterior docks with one over-sized position for air cargo containers, one drive-in door and the renovation of 8,000 square feet of office space.
Jess Knigge, vice president of construction, is the project executive for The Missner Group and Jack Sbertoli is the project manager. Melissa Powell of Colliers International is overseeing the construction management. Harris Architects is providing architectural services on the project, which is slated for a turn-key completion in spring 2012.
