Mc Donald’s Schiller Park
Since 1993, our firm has overseen design and permitting for more than 250 McDonald’s restaurants throughout the Chicago area. In 2005, 2006 and 2007 Soos was retained by Corporate McDonald’s to oversee and insure the integration and completion of the only US location that serves as the “Store of The Future”. Serving as both the architect and Construction Manager for this project, Soos held the lead role to insure the opening of this store in eight weeks. Through daily construction coordination and a 24 hour-a-day condensed construction schedule, Soos coordinated the full removal, replacement and expansion of the drive thru booth, full site upgrades, full demolition of the kitchen, dining room, employee area and entry vestibules, structural investigation for coring existing floor planks with new penetrations, structural modification due to older failing trusses and additional weight of roof top mechanical units. The project required specialized experience and technical competence in the areas of site, architecture, mechanical , electrical, civil, structural, cost estimates, inspections, and life safety codes as new equipment and concepts were incorporated into this location. Soos also held the lead role for obtaining municipal zoning and building code approvals.
