"the works"

A basement mechanical space in the 1 N. Dearborn building that was un-tempered for the past 110 years is now a new fitness center dubbed “the works.” To preserve some of the building's history, a giant chilled water valve and 20 feet of the horizontal branch was cleaned and encased in a glass wall. Several months of design collaboration between Beacon Capital Partners, MB RealEstate, Wright Heerema, Kent Consulting and BEAR resulted in a 16 week schedule. Project Manager Jarrik Mitchell and Superintendent Dan Sweeney managed this amazing project for BEAR.
