The George Sollitt Construction Company

Description
Located at the former Glenview Naval Air Station, The Glen Town Center (The Glen) is a 450,000 square foot retail, entertainment and housing district designed to emulate a main street shopping experience. Sollitt was hired as Construction Manager to construct two parking structures within the retail section of the development. Each of the parking structures features a precast, pre-stressed concrete structural system, speed ramps, stair towers, and brick façade to compliment the surrounding buildings. During the pre-construction phase, the Sollitt team provided extensive budgeting, scheduling, value engineering, site logistics analysis which helped determine the most cost-effective method to construct these two parking structures.
