Manhard was retained to provide civil engineering, entitlement assistance, permitting, land surveying and landscape architecture on this 140,000 square foot logistics center located in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood. Our teams were able to meet challenging entitlement and permitting schedules to keep the project on track. The project has various challenges including planning for multiple phases of construction due to an extended lease on part of the property. Additionally, the site was a brownfield, and our teams provided detailed earthwork assistance, taking into consideration environmental constraints and stormwater regulations. Our stormwater solutions included a combination at grade basin and underground vault to optimize cost to meet client’s desired site plan.

Manhard’s expedited design and permitting schedule allowed for construction to start on time. Our unique earthwork and stormwater design saved in excess of $1,000,000 in construction cost.

This project won The Chicago Greater Food Depository Real Estate Award for Industrial Project of the Year in 2022.
