ROSEMONT, IL - Jeffrey A. Raday, P.E., President of McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm has been selected by Wanxiang America Real Estate Group, LLC to provide comprehensive building renovations to the Bannockburn Executive Plaza, a three-story, 130,000 square foot office building located at 2275 Half Day Road in Bannockburn, Illinois.  Conveniently situated at the full four-way interchange of the Tri-State Tollway (I-94) and Half Day Road (Illinois State Route 22), the office facility provides a prominent location within Chicago’s prestigious north suburban market.  
Originally constructed in 1978, McShane Construction will provide extensive exterior updating to the facility including the modernization of the façade and entrance canopy together with new lighting, landscaping and signage, sidewalks and driveways.  The assignment also includes over 10,000 square feet of interior renovations, encompassing the update of the multi-story atrium, nine restrooms, the Leaf Café and common corridors. 
       To create a visual focal point in the large atrium, a three-story staircase will wrap around a new elevator with glass and decorative Carrera marble cladding. A stunning 150 square foot water feature will also be constructed to complement the new features in the entry space. The building's three wings, which are accessed through the atrium, will undergo an upscale refresh to the floors, walls and ceilings.  Additional interior renovations will include new equipment and updates to the customer area in the building's gourmet restaurant, The Leaf Café.  
“McShane Construction is proud to be chosen for the high-end renovation of this landmark office facility.  Our experience in tenant improvements and office building construction/renovation will play an important role in delivering an exceptional product on behalf of Wanxiang America Real Estate Group,” remarks Raday.
