Kroger Store Renovations - Cincinnati, OH
CLIENT: Kroger Company VALUE: $4M (total) ROLE: CM
Megen has served as Construction Manager for the renovations of two Kroger stores in the Cincinnati area.
A301 Store: A $1.5M, 12,000 SF renovation of the approximate 40-year old Kroger Store at 1420 Vine Street in the Over-the-Rhine area. The interior/exterior renovation included selective demolition, an exterior storefront face lift, loading dock, newly paved parking lot, EPDM roofing system, new drywall and metal studs, new elevator, VCT flooring, employee bathrooms, deli, meat prep area, produce prep area, as well as new furnishings (freezer, refrigerated coolers, shelving, display units, checkout counters and customer service station). In the effort of minimizing the store’s shut down time, all of the above mentioned construction was successfully implemented within a six-week working schedule, utilizing two 8-hour shifts per day. Megen also received stellar diversity results on the project – 60% of the total contracts were minority-owned or women-owned companies.
A370 Store: A $2.5M, 55,000 SF renovation of the 30-year old former Thriftway grocery store, located in the Monfort Heights/Green Township area. This major overhaul involved extensive demolition and new construction implementation of both the building’s interior and exterior areas.
New construction included the installation of a new Kroger’s signature front entrance canopy, membrane roofing system, HVAC system, glass storefront system, custom exterior painting, pharmacy kiosks, handicap-accessible walkways, suspended acoustical ceilings, VCT tile flooring, epoxy flooring, handicap-accessible restrooms and a new Starbucks Coffee area. Megen worked with contractors through a 4-1/2 month period to successfully finish these scopes of work long before the grand opening. This allowed Kroger-contracted subcontractors enough time to finish their work. Megen also achieved 50% minority participation on the project.
"Your project managers built excellent relationships with the community residents minimized disruption to the neighborhood, and finished the job without a single safety issue.”"
