(ROSEMONT, Illinois)- James A. Brucato and Mark E. Augustyn, owners of Principle Construction Corp., are pleased to announce that their firm has completed construction on a new 46,500 square foot freezer/cooler building for Budreck Truck Lines at 2642 Joseph Court in University Park, Illinois.


Principle constructed the building which includes 8,000 square feet of corporate offices, 1,000 square feet of truck driver lounge/warehouse support areas, 2,000 square feet of fork lift area, 6,000 square feet of trailer maintenance and repair bays, 6,700 square feet of cooler space, 10,000 square feet of freezer space and 12,800 square feet of refrigerated dock space. Cooler and freezer spaces have 24’ clear height ceilings. The refrigerated dock includes 14 dock positions with full-concealed hydraulic levelers.

Unique features of the building that presented challenges during construction include a building envelope with increased R-values and LED light fixtures to enhance energy efficiency. The structure accommodates 70 car parking stalls and five acres of concrete pavement with perimeter fencing for secured tractor trailer storage.

“We are proud to have completed this project on schedule in just a seven-month time frame,” said Mark Augustyn, Principal of Principle Construction Corp. “The complex space we were building, in addition to new roads, water mains and sanitary lines, gave our team a challenging project that allowed us to step up our game.”

Darrin Dehmlow served as Project Manager and Doug Brucato worked as Superintendent. The building was designed by Partners in Design’s Wener Briske. NAI Hiffman’s Chris Gary represented Budreck in the purchase of the site.
