Mortenson recently completed the first phase of the partial demolition, expansion and renovation of Halas Hall, the iconic Lake Forest, Illinois headquarters of the Chicago Bears. The first phase, turned over on April 1, focused on football operations and included demolition of part of the original facility and building a 165,000-square-foot addition with partial basement.
The first phase work was completed while accommodating the team and football organization, which continued to operate out of and train at the headquarters. Strategic planning and innovative solutions have enabled the team to stay on track in meeting the accelerated project timetable while also accommodating additional scope. Even with the additional work, the project remains on schedule to wrap up in August for the Bears’ return from summer camp.
