BSN Sports is the largest distributor of team sports apparel and equipment in the United States. They recently decided to move their Indianapolis office to Hillsdale Business Park on the northeast side of Indianapolis.
BSN’s previous lease was expiring at the end of March 2014, so they had to make a decision quickly. They ultimately selected Hillsdale based largely on the landlord’s willingness to accommodate their short time schedule. The lease was completed on Feb. 4th, which gave just 35 days to complete the final construction plans, gather all necessary permits and complete construction.
In addition to leasing and managing Hillsdale Business Park, JLL also provides Project Management services via our Project and Development Services (PDS) group. Our Indianapolis PDS team, led by Jeff Humphreys. Jeff was able to quickly engage an architectural firm as well as a Mechanical Electrical & Plumbing firm. After completing the plans in less than a week, Jeff coordinated expediting the permits with the state and city. The permits were received in less than a week allowing for construction to begin within 2 weeks of the lease execution. Jeff selected a general contractor that could complete the project in the remaining 5 weeks, and worked with the GC and BSN to determine a final project schedule. Jeff also helped BSN to find a qualified mover and coordinated their IT/Data cabling installation. The project was completed on time on March 21st and BSN Sports was able to move in that afternoon.
This project is just one example of how JLL PDS completes their projects on time, and under budget with their highly experienced staff, leveraging relationships with contractors both locally and globally.
