Summit Design + Build Launches Expansion for TLC Ingredients

Summit Design + Build recently launched construction at TLC Ingredients in Crest Hill, IL. The project includes the construction of a 55,012-square-foot addition to TLC Ingredients’ existing 40,000-square-foot precast warehouse. 

The expansion will increase the company’s current warehouse space by 140%. A breakroom will also be added to the existing office, along with a new loading dock, bathroom and parking stalls. 

Founded in 2001, TLC Ingredients is a high-quality distributor of food ingredients, industrial chemicals and phenolic resins. The expansion project coincides with the company’s 20th anniversary year. 

Harris Architects, Inc. is serving as the project architect. Construction is scheduled to be completed this coming fall.
