McShane Adding 430K SF to Abt Electronics’ Glenview Facility

McShane Construction Company is underway with a 429,524-square-foot addition to Abt Electronics’ existing warehouse and showroom facility in Glenview, IL. The project is expected to deliver in October.

“We look forward to adding needed space for Abt Electronics to expand their operations,” said Tom Beres, VP at McShane. “We understand that construction activities on expansion projects can be disruptive to the existing facility and employees, so we’ve carefully planned the construction process so that the business can remain fully operational with minimal disturbances.”

The addition will incorporate two three-story office blocks totaling 22,230 square feet and 407,294 square feet of warehouse space.

The office buildouts will include trucking offices, security offices, a break room and open office space for future buildouts. The single-story warehouse will offer a 32′ clear height, 39 semi-truck docks and 144 EOD box truck positions.
