Project Spotlight – McDonald’s Corporate Headquarters

October 17, 2018

OCTOBER 2018 – East Coast Metal Systems (ECMS) recently completed the metal panel fabrication for the new, 600,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art McDonald’s Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.

This nine-story project utilized the EC-200 Dry Joint MCM System with 16,000 square feet of Zinc composite panels and 1,600 square feet of aluminum composite panels. The wall panel system also included a custom hanging attachment system to accommodate the design requirements.

Panel fabrication and installation was labor intensive due to the complexity of shape, natural finish, and overall weight of the materials once fabricated. Additional stiffening of the panels had to be done to meet the weight requirement of the panels.

The new McDonald’s Headquarters involved a three dimensional panel layout to simulate the look of structural beams due to its location in the highly industrial West Loop of Downtown Chicago. Congratulations to the ECMS team involved with this high-profile project!
