This 1.1 million-square-foot industrial structure formerly housed a hair-care manufacturing and distribution plant that moved its facilities. The interior consisted of multiple construction features, including steel framing, concrete mushroom columns, and timber-construction masonry and load-bearing buildings. Future plans for the 30-acre site located in southern Cook County, IL, include redevelopment.
The building, with its multiple construction materials, was demolished. All concrete was processed and recycled onsite. Any hazardous waste was carefully contained and disposed of offsite. Scrap metal, equipment and material assets were sorted and recovered.
