To better accommodate staff, Union Pacific needed a new office at the Proviso Yard in Melrose Park, Illinois. TKDA and our affiliate Cedar Street Architecture provided the design, permit services and MWRD for the new 45,500 SF facility.
The first floor of the new two-story building features a crew area with 680 lockers, vending and break area, job briefing room, a crew tie up area, yard masters, nurse area, several conference rooms, a communication shop, four training rooms for up to 100 students with an operable partition, training simulators and accompanying training offices. The second floor includes the intermodal dispatchers, communications, special agents, claims and service. A workout room, break area and several conference rooms are also included on the second floor.
