Monday, August 31st Bulley & Andrews broke ground on a new and exciting project, the company’s new headquarters. Recognizing the importance of location, Bulley & Andrews is expanding their corporate offices in the vibrant and diverse Chicago neighborhood of Bucktown, of which they have been a member since 1952.
Three generations of the Bulley family gathered for the ceremonial groundbreaking. Remarking on the transformation the firm has undergone during the course of its storied 124 year history, Allan E. Bulley, Jr. shared memories from when he first joined his father in the family enterprise.
“When I first joined the company in 1956, the office consisted of a 50 x 125 building with the rear of the building used as our yard,” said Bulley, Jr. “Now we are about to embark on a new adventure.”
Recognizing his father’s vision for the new building, Allan (Ally) E. Bulley, III also highlighted the firm’s commitment to its employees and clients and shared their plans for the firm’s continued growth.
Joe Antunovich, the project’s architect, also spoke at the ceremony. He emphasized the strong partnership between Bulley & Andrews and Antunovich Associates, who have completed 15+ projects together across the region. Joining forces again, the new 39,000 square foot office building will reflect the building principles of collaboration and community which complement Bulley & Andrews’ business ethos.
Scheduled to be complete Fall 2016, the opening of the new headquarters will coincide with Bulley & Andrews’ celebration of 125 years in business.
