BP Bright Lights


The project includes the build out of a number of floors in the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Building to support a new trading floor in downtown Chicago. The project scope involves demolition of over 200,000 square feet and the reconstruction of office space to meet BP’s specific needs, including a 30,000 square foot trading floor to accommodate 510 traders, a full-service kitchen, and a café. The trade floor will feature a multilevel mezzanine along with bridges and communicating stairs, as well as a fully redundant mechanical and electrical system. This project is the largest LEED-CI (Commercial Interiors) project in the Midwest to achieve LEEDTM Platinum Status.

PMA developed and maintained a master project schedule and provided updates on a monthly basis. In addition, PMA provided transition schedule management support to assist BP with closeout of the project and help move staff into their new space. A separate transition management schedule was also developed and maintained on a monthly basis.
