Summit Design + Build Holds Open House at New Fulton Market Offices

General contractor Summit Design + Build recently hosted friends and clients of the firm at its new Fulton Market district office. Guests were invited to enjoy a happy hour on Summit’s expansive fifth-floor patio overlooking the historic Fulton Market District. 

Summit’s office building, located at 1036 W. Fulton Market, is a newly constructed five-story, heavy-timber building with first floor retail space. Completed in early 2020, the building is one of the first multi-story timber office buildings built in Chicago in more than 75 years. 

The office building, also constructed by Summit Design + Build, has already received numerous awards including the “SEAOI 2021 Award of Excellence” and the “2021 U.S. Woodworks Wood Design Award for Regional Excellence.”
