J.C. Anderson Tapped for Buildout of Ajinomoto Headquarters

J.C. Anderson was selected to complete a renovation project for Ajinomoto Health & Nutrition (AHN) North America, Inc.’s new corporate headquarters location at 250 Devon Ave. in Itasca, IL. The company is relocating from 1300 N. Arlington Heights Rd., also in Itasca.

AHN selected J.C. Anderson to complete a 55,000 square foot build-out to the single-story office building. Scheduled for completion in March 2021, construction will include extensive slab trenching to allow for new infrastructure to accommodate AHN’s new layout and design.

“The life sciences industry has been accelerating the past couple of years, but even more so since Covid-19,” said J.C. Anderson COO Steve Boulukos. “It is certainly an emerging focus for Chicagoland with the demand growing for lab space and we expect to see an increase of these types of build-outs for our clients.”
