ICI began its relationship with Jewel-Osco grocery stores in 2001 when we were awarded the renovation of an existing store in Evanston, Illinois. From that point forward, ICI worked with Jewel-Osco on a variety of renovation projects, as well as one new construction store.
When performing a renovation project, it is particularly challenging to build while the store is fully operational. Typically, ICI’s team barricades the construction area in order to keep it isolated from shoppers. Any demolition, or other work that might become too disruptive to the store, is completed after hours.
ICI completed 51,384 square feet of interior and exterior renovations including the produce, deli and bakery sections. Renovations took place while the store was fully operational but the necessary precautions were taken to avoid disrupting shoppers.
ICI completed this 68,000 square foot renovation of the Oswego Jewel-Osco in just 23 weeks. The store remained open during the construction process making customer safety a top priority. Construction areas were barricaded and kept isolated in order to protect shoppers. Renovations included the photo lab, pharmacy, produce, deli and bakery sections.
