J.C. Anderson Completes Build-Out at Merchandise Mart

J.C. Anderson has completed an office build-out for Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group at the Merchandise Mart. The group currently includes global kitchen and bath brands of Moen, Riobel, Perrin & Rowe and The House of ROHL.

The project entailed building out two showrooms, including one for Moen (pictured), and a dedicated office space. The new space features the art and science behind the brand, including running water exhibits, an open, natural flow to encourage visitor interaction, new branding and signage and curved millwork backlit with blue LEDs to represent the concept of water.

“It was imperative to Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group to establish a dynamic presence in the Merchandise Mart to elevate its brand and appeal to Millennials,” noted J.C. Anderson project executive John Angelovich. CBRE provided project management services.
