TURNING A GROWTH OPPORTUNITY INTO REALITY
A food and beverage manufacturing company was outgrowing capacity and needed to expand production quickly, but smartly. They turned to Princeton to help turn an urgent business opportunity into reality.
Princeton immediately conducted a needs analysis on the construction of a new assembly line to manufacturer the product; a new 100,000 square foot warehouse facility to store the product; and a new railroad spur to move the product. This work included managing the RFQ and RFP process, coordinating architecture firms and constructions firms, identifying schedules, critical paths and designs. We also put our broad experience with regulators and governments at all levels to help the company secure necessary permit approvals and obtain available public grants.
CREATING A SPACE FOR INNOVATION
A large food technology company needed a 10,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art test kitchen to develop product lines that are sold to some of the top restaurant brands in the world. They wanted a space that would encourage creative thinking and innovation.
They turned to Princeton for owner’s rep services, where we managed the entire assignment, from conception to construction. The result is one of the most modern test kitchens in the world where the company can now create the next generation of innovations and product lines.
HELPING ATTRACT MILLENNIALS
A large industrial and manufacturing company needed a refresh of its headquarter office to better convey an up-tempo, modern workplace that would attract young people and those with an entrepreneurial spirit.
The company turned to Princeton to manage a $13 million comprehensive makeover. From conception to execution, we managed the architects, interior designers and constructions managers, turning a staid work environment into a fun and energetic space that motivates and inspires employees to work together and be creative.
HELPING THE CTA STAY ON TRACK
The Chicago Transit Authority has a number of station renovations in process, including the Quincy Brown Line Station and the 95th Street Red line. This work involves a hugely complex network of subcontractors that must be managed and held accountable.
Princeton was tapped to help manage the quality control, safety and overall project management of the various work-flows. We developed and implemented some key processes and standards to ensure that work was more organized and proactive. We created a longer view of upcoming tasks to allow for better planning and sequencing. The results are projects done safely, on-time, on-budget and with outstanding quality controls.
