Case Study

Feeding Quaker’s Relocation Need

After Quaker Foods and Beverages decided that moving its Chicago corporate headquarters was more economical than restacking its current space, the real work began. Our project and move management experts, veterans of several major corporate relocations, were engaged to manage an aggressively-scheduled lease transaction and interior fit-out to Quaker’s specifications for its 403,000-square-foot-space in a new building in the Loop.

Our project team acted as Quaker’s liaison with the building developer, City of Chicago officials providing incentive funding, the contractor that we selected and other stakeholders, keeping all parties connected with weekly status meetings. We also developed a web-based tracking system to help Quaker executives obtain real-time project and employee-move information to keep the initiative on schedule.

Concurrently, we worked with the developer to incorporate Quaker needs, such as additional floor loading requirements, a compressed data center floor and interior stair cut-outs into the base building phase to reduce costs. Quaker moved into a satisfactory new headquarters on time, and at a 3 percent to 4 percent savings thanks to our value engineering and proactive negotiations during the interior fit-out.
