Titan Electric completed a major renovation project at Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook, IL. Oakbrook Center is one of the largest open-air shopping centers in the U.S. with more than two million square feet and over 160 retail stores and restaurants.
Improvements to the Center included the creation of new pedestrian paths to enhance the shopping experience, along with updated navigational graphics, modern seating, improved lighting, prairie-style landscaping and the installation of water bodies and fountains throughout.
A spiraling fountain, located outside near the center of the mall, was added and will operate every day of the year with water displays and lighting effects. An open lawn area called the Village Green will be used for seasonal entertainment and special events, including live music. Another important addition is the Amenities Pavilion, an enclosed glass structure where shoppers can find seating, tables and a warming station that includes a fireplace.
Construction was specifically designed to allow the mall and all its stores to remain open throughout the project.
Titan Electric’s involvement included the installation of:
New lighting for concourse areas
Lighting control system with programmable Square D lighting panels
800amp service for upgraded panels
Energy-efficient light fixtures throughout
Power and LED lighting for added fountain features
4” conduits for future fiber connections to stores
Graycor was the general contractor for the project with architectural services provided by OMNIPLAN and landscape architectural services by StudioOutside.
