State-of-the-art headquarters facility built on 11 acres

Amigos Foods is a premier national meat distributor and when they decided to expand their cold storage distribution capabilities and relocate their regional headquarters in the Midwest, they hired Development Solutions, Inc. through a competitive lump sum bid process

The 113,000 SF, 32’ clear, state-of-the-art facility was built on 11 acres in Chicago’s Archer Heights neighborhood. Highlights of the project included environmental soil remediation, 26,500 SF of office and wellbeing areas over two floors, 67,000 SF of freezers (-10F) and convertible coolers (+38 to -10F) to support 6,500 pallets by means of a DX Ammonia system, and a 5,300 SF standalone maintenance building. The project also included a significant MBE participation requirement by the City of Chicago.
