Principle Begins Improvements on Industrial Dry-Cleaning Facility
Principle Construction recently started construction on the tenant improvements of a 282,588-square-foot building at 2000 Deerpath Road in Aurora, Illinois, for Tailored Brands. The fashion retailer owns popular brands such as Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank, and family retailer K&G Fashion Superstore.
Principle’s John Cahill is the project manager, while Principle’s Mark Frane serves as superintendent. Partners in Design is working as the project architect. The Principle team will add a 13,491-square-foot boiler and dry-cleaning room, as well as a new 4,000-amp electrical service. The team is also installing twenty new 25-ton rooftop air conditioning units, along with 14 interlocking exhaust fans.
“The Aurora facility will add much-needed capacity to support their formal clothing rental business, including infrastructure for dry cleaning, laundry, repair and storage of thousands of tuxedos and other formalwear,” says Principle President James Brucato.
