Woodfield Shopping Center, one of the nation’s largest premier retail centers with more than 300 stores and restaurants, is greeting its customers with newly renovated entrances. The renovation project was recently performed by Graycor.
Because Woodfield’s six entrances all had to remain open during the mall’s normal operating hours, Graycor worked on two entrances at a time, utilizing both day and night crews. One-half of an entry was shut down for work to be performed, while the entry’s other half remained open. To avoid impact on shoppers, Graycor performed all of the demolition, steel, heavy framing and storefronts work at night.
Scope of work included installing new multi-colored, stained concrete sidewalks; glass canopies and screen-walls; stone; EIFS and metal panel façades with stainless-steel reveals; and all new aluminum storefronts clad in stainless steel.
By replacing the old brown-anodized entrances, which showed excessive wear-and-tear, the updated entrances now have a more sophisticated look with new mirror-fin-ished, stainless steel doors, wall tiles, stone panels and stained concrete sidewalks.
