ELMHURST -- Principle Construction Corp. has completed a 63,578 square foot manufacturing and office facility for MLE Inc., a company that specializes in brand services including store openings, expansions, remodels, retrofits, re-openings, as well as roll outs of major marketing campaigns, signage, graphics fixtures and more.
The building, at 540 W. Lamont Road in Elmhurst, houses 38,495 square feet of production space, a 25,083 square foot, two story office space, seven docks and two drive-in doors. The production space boasts 33-foot clear height ceilings, heavy power, an ESFR sprinkler system and a 60 mil TPO roofing system with R30 insulation. The three-acre site has 68 parking spaces and an underground stormwater detention system.
Even though the facility was designed to specifically match MLE's requirements additional features were incorporated to make it economically adaptable as a multi-tenant facility.
MLE relocated from its previous headquarters at 1800 Lunt Ave. in Elk Grove Village.
Cornerstone Architects provided architectural services for the project. Principle's Mark Augustyn is the executive in charge on the project. Matt Cotherman of Rosemont-based Principle was the project manager and Tom Sterbenz was the superintendent.
