Staples Store Build-Out


Joseph Freed & Associates


K2N Crest


General Contractor

Serving as the General Contractor, ICI prepared a 17,288 square foot retail space for occupancy for Staples in the Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. Preparation included demolishing the existing space as well as installing one elevator and two escalators.

ICI re-routed and extended water and sewer lines for the relocation of rest rooms. To provide more power to the site, ICI reworked the electrical power supply, creating new circuits in the electrical panel. The original rooftop AC was removed and three new units with steel supports were added.

A Service Corridor and floor to roof demising partitions were erected. A set of double, automatic entrance doors and a security system were also installed.

Following the upgrading of power and the installation of lighting, ICI worked closely with Staples to coordinate the owner-installed fixturing package. After completion, ICI returned and connected the lights.
