Every year, the Illinois Real Estate Journal recognizes the top firms within the commercial real estate industry, celebrating the milestones and achievements of builders, architects, developers, and more. V3 edged out our engineering competitors with two of our 2022 standout projects: the BMO Tower in Chicago’s southwest loop district and the Oak Brook Commons development. Both projects demonstrated our engineering expertise and commitment to providing innovative solutions to complex challenges.
For the BMO Tower project, our team rerouted a five-foot diameter sewer bisecting the site to avoid future maintenance and liability concerns during construction. This involved designing a new bulkhead to avoid flooding under the office tower, as well as assisting with right-of-way acquisition along Canal Street to expand the building footprint.
The apartment and mixed-use development project at Oak Brook Commons included engineering services and horizontal infrastructure including roadways, parking, utilities, and building pads for five restaurant/retail locations, an apartment building, hotel, office building, and two condominium buildings.
IREJ also selected V3 based on our employee enrichment programs such as VSR and Revitalize. Creating an inclusive, inspiring workplace is one of our core values, and we’re proud to be an industry leader in workplace culture and employee satisfaction.
