Located on the third floor of the 6640 S. Cicero building in Bedford Park, Illinois, this interior renovation project for Cricket Communications involved the demolition of most of the existing 10,000 SF of office space and added a large training room for new hires in the region, several offices and conference rooms and a new lobby area.

Work completed included a glass conference room space, a copy / work area, new millwork, a data room, new carpeting and wall covering throughout the space, new lighting for training and work areas and several new cubicles. Audio / visual equipment was installed as was the low voltage phone and data wiring as required. In addition, plumbing for the added kitchen area, sprinkler modifications, new ceilings in several areas of the space and HVAC and lighting modifications were made throughout the space.

The project was put on an aggressive schedule due to the major expansion Cricket Communications has embarked on in the Chicagoland area. The project was completed on schedule in early June 2009.
