James A. Brucato and Mark E. Augustyn, owners of Principle Construction Corp., announced that Principle has built a new 157,500 square foot warehouse on the 11.82 acre site at 850 Asbury Drive in Buffalo Grove, IL. Principle demolished a 55,000 square foot vacant building on the site to build the new structure.The new facility features 32-foot clear height ceilings, 36 truck docks, 4 drive-in doors and a paved parking lot for 173 cars. Ten to twenty percent of the building is built office space. To accommodate storm water, Principle built landscaped retaining walls and two detention ponds. The building is constructed of insulated, load bearing architectural precast wall panels, concrete slab on grade, glass and aluminum entrances, and a ballasted EPDM roof.
The unique geometry and topography presented many challenges to achieve our clients’ goals. Through teamwork and ingenuity Principle and its design team developed a plan that exceeded our clients’ needs. This project was so well orchestrated that we were able to shave an entire month off the completion date.
Michael Long was the Principal for the new building. Rick Grabowski served as Project Manager for Principle Construction Corp. while Mark and Matt Frane served as Superintendent. Harris Architects provided architectural services and Kimley-Horn and Associates’ Jamie Putnam was the project engineer. Ridgeline Property Group’s Pete Harmon marketed the building for its owner, USRLP Asbury Drive, LLC.
