Nicor/AGL Resources – New Training Center

Client

Nicor/AGL Resources, Naperville, IL

Challenge

Fast Track Construction of new 22,000+ square foot training facility

Solution

Utilize Pull-Planning and Lean Construction Principles to deliver new building on fast track schedule

Trinidad Construction served as General Contractor for the ground-up construction of a new 22,000 square foot+ training facility in Naperville, IL.   Work was challenging as the site is located adjacent to the existing, fully-operational training building, and training field site.  Work had to be phased to allow for uninterrupted operation of the existing facility.   Phase one:  construction of a new parking lot.   Phase two:  ground up construction of a new, state of the art training center.  Phase three:  demolition of the existing facility, and site work.   The on-site project management team for Trinidad utilized the Pull-Planning method of scheduling which is built upon Lean Construction principles.   Our team has recently attained the CM-Lean certification through the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC – Chicago).
