Dec. 20, 2012 James Ohle, an architect with decades of experience, had never worked on a steel building. So when he was asked to design a new, cavernous 18,000-square-foot, start-of-the-art Chicago-area nightclub and cabaret, he had to consider options he never would have otherwise. The challenge was getting the building up in time for an early 2013 grand opening within a tight budget.
Conventional construction just would not have worked, Ohle said. Construction materials and labor, and contracting costs would have rendered the project financially unsound. He turned to Allied Steel Buildings.
The focus of the club and the budget is on the technology it will offer patrons in this never-been-done before concept, Ohle said. There are the standard elements found in any cabaret the architect needed to consider, such as a kitchen, restaurant, bars, dance floors and dressing rooms. Beyond that, the final project includes 3-D and 4-D digital projections of scenery and costumes for the main stage. (There are three stages.)
