Leading North Shore design-build firm will consolidate operations in Wilmette this August

This move will make it so much easier for people to work together more seamlessly and organically.

In a move that will put them closer to customers and combine all of the growing firm's divisions under one roof, the Orren Pickell Building Group will be moving to 444 Skokie Boulevard in Wilmette in August, 2018. All four divisions—the Design Group, Building Group, Maintenance Group and CabinetWerks custom cabinetry team—will be in the same location for the first time in over ten years.

"As a design-build firm, one of the greatest advantages we offer our customers is our ability to have experts in each discipline working together from concept through move-in," explains president Lisa Pickell. "As we've grown, we've had to split teams into two offices. This move will make it so much easier for people to work together more seamlessly and organically. Even though we've been just a phone call away from one another, it's not the same as being down the hall."

The Orren Pickell Building Group decided to purchase the building, rather than lease as they had in the past, in order to manage operating costs and provide space for their continued growth.

"We'll be building out a new showroom to help clients envision emerging trends and materials," adds Pickell. "And then we'll work on enhancing the space inside and out. Our design team can't wait to get started."

Orren Pickell Building Group has been a leading design-build firm on Chicago's North Shore for more than 40 years. The company provides custom home architecture and construction throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan.
