Two services that Blue Water Builders has an unique level of experience in are Class 6B Tax Incentives and Corporate Campus Renovations.

6B TAX INCENTIVES

Over the years, our team has completed large-scale 6B Tax Incentive projects in numerous cities around Cook County. This has given us valuable experience on projects utilizing this incentive.

We provide:

  • Coordination between design team and tax attorneys who specialize in the design and legal process to procure 6B municipal and county approvals.
  • Assistance during the design process in value engineering to meet minimum requirements, maximize design impact, and minimize construction costs.
  • Rapid construction and project completion with minimal disruption to our clients’ current operations.

CORPORATE CAMPUS RENOVATION

Blue Water has been involved in numerous complete campus renovations. These projects allow our team to bring new life to properties that once were a single tenant occupancy and find new uses for facilities that are limited in their current configuration. On these projects, our team offers:

  • Early involvement in the purchase and/or design process to allow us to become experts in the inner-workings of an out-of-date property.
  • Preparation of single-user facilities for multiple tenants, including retrofitting and upgrading mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems across many users.
  • Identification of opportunities to make the property welcoming to multiple tenants, and then executing these changes including new entrances, parking lots, and the shared elements (cafeterias, fitness, entertainment elements, gathering spaces, meeting rooms, grand lobbies, restrooms) that make these campuses attractive to large corporations.
