Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council (MARC) Quad Cities Campus

We love it when we get to build from the ground up! That’s exactly what we were able to do for Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council (MACRC). The new two-facility complex in East Moline, IL consists of a state-of-the-art training center and a new union hall office building.

The 65,000-square-foot training center will serve its 2,000 union members and apprentices in the Quad Cities and the State of Illinois. The training building features functional classrooms and shop areas which were designed with a special attention to detail between the carpenters and millwright training areas. The carpentry space features beautiful wood finishes and textures, while the millwright side has more of an industrial machinery feel.

The two-story administrative facility includes offices, conference rooms, a cafeteria, and a 250-seat meeting room which will be used for union and public events.

Will Hall and Law Building

In the spirit of a historic renovation, Bush Construction converted the beautiful Will Hall and Law building in downtown Aledo, Illinois. There are now three commercial units on the main floor and AirBnB units on the second floor.

Bush Construction also completed the historical renovation of the Carnegie Library in Aledo, Illinois at the same time. Built in 1915-16, the landmark served generations of community members until it closed in 2019.

The storefronts of the Perryton Law Building were restored for a more historic appearance, which the Bush Design team kept in mind when drawing up plans. On the first floor of this renovation, there is commercial space, and the second floor contains tenant space. This project required a finish date within a strict time frame and with diligent planning and strong trade partner relationships and communication, we were able to achieve this aggressive schedule.

McCarthy-Bush Corporation

Bush Construction was pleased to lead the renovation of our home office. The modernization was a collaboration between McCarthy-Bush Corporation and our design and construction teams. We converted our more than two-decade-old office space into an open, airy, and inviting space for team members encompassing multiple companies and work disciplines. Utilizing research of several other modern office spaces, we were able to create increased efficiency and provide spaces that provide our team a great place to call their work home. During construction, we were able to phase the project to ensure none of our family of companies experienced downtime while also preparing some of our existing space for a new tenant.

Pour Bros. Craft Taproom

Pour Bros. Craft Taproom opened its third location in Downtown Moline in 2022 with the help of the Bush Construction and Design team.

When opening its doors in Peoria Heights, Illinois, in 2016, Pour Bros. Craft Taproom was Illinois’ first self-serve bar featuring pour-your-own technology. Founders Nathan Monroe and Rob Mathisen have combined modern technology with old-fashioned service to create a truly unique experience. They also believe and invest in communities that embody rich histories and beautiful stories like those of Peoria Heights, Champaign, and now Moline.

Pour Bros. occupies close to 4,000 ground floor square feet at 1209 4th St., Suite 2, in Moline. The development collective is known as The Q and is also home to The Element Hotel, Urban Farmhouse, and a future hub to hub to passenger rail service.

Bush Construction built a 26-foot-long bar with a subway tile backsplash. Tables were made from repurposed semi-truck flooring to fill the floor, created by West End Salvage in Des Moines. Murals and artifacts paying homage to Moline create a homey atmosphere.

Our design team did an excellent job of creating an eclectic combination of concrete floors, metal, wood, tile, and artwork blend together to create an inviting and relaxed space. The large room is a mixed-use area consisting of vintage games and some TVs – a great space for groups, parties, league game nights, trivia, or just a fun place to hang out with friends.

The interior of the new craft taproom features a rustic industrial design that pays tribute to the area’s hard-working heritage who built this vibrant community.

Pure Hair + Beauty Lounge

Business owner and visionary, Stacey Spillum, worked with Bush Construction to develop “Utica & 56,” a modern commercial building to house three tenant spaces in addition to her studio, Pure Hair + Beauty Lounge. We worked hand-in-hand with Stacey to design Pure Hair + Beauty Lounge and two other tenant spaces. Features of the aesthetically pleasing building include an abundance of natural light and a modern, minimal design. We couldn’t be more pleased to help Stacey achieve her vision of a creative collection of spaces that compliment each other.

TBK Bank

TBK Bank, SSB, a subsidiary of Triumph Bancorp, Inc., opened its new Midwest headquarters in a brand new building on Grant Street in downtown Bettendorf, Iowa. The innovation-rich headquarters occupies approximately 36,000 SF, spans three stories, and features a custom fabricated staircase, open office workstations, collaboration areas, private offices, a large kitchen with café-style seating, and multiple conference rooms. The bank’s grand entrance balances security and comfort.

This interior-build out also includes custom wallpaper branding and high-end light fixtures, acoustic ceiling panels, and sound baffles. Two full-sized murals designed and painted by Quad City Arts youth participants are located off the second and third-floor elevator lobbies.

Animal Family Veterinary Care Center

Animal Family Veterinary Care Center’s growth was outpacing the size of their facility. Our design and construction teams helped to find solutions through renovations of two adjacent facilities and a small addition. The team converted their existing, partially vacant “north building” into a state-of-the-art grooming, boarding, and training facility. The goal of all client-facing areas was to be friendly and inviting while all employee-facing areas were to provide facilities that prepare the AFVCC team for the future of veterinary care.

Phase two of the project was to utilize existing ward spaces and convert them into all-new medical and dental treatment spaces. The addition portion of the project was to provide new ward spaces for treated animals. The completion of phase two represented a total transformation of the entire campus, complimented by the already completed play area.

Edward Jones

The client, an Edward Jones financial advisor, was looking not only at having their own office space but also creating spaces to be leased to complementing businesses. Our design and construction teams worked with the client to realize a building that both satisfied their design requirements and fit nicely into the transitional area between commercial and residential spaces. We coordinated work with the client’s private contractor on their tenant fit-out to ensure a successful transition from building shell to tenant space.

The Captain’s Table

After a structure fire destroyed the Captain’s Table, a longtime Quad-City area restaurant located alongside the bank of the Mississippi River, Bush Construction worked with the owners to rebuild the 6,000 square feet restaurant and 2,000 square feet patio.

The project consisted of:

  • Reworking the sites and stabilizing the soils of the new building’s footprint.
  • Pouring and stripping new concrete parking lots.
  • Installing concrete ramps and pouring stairs that lead into the building.
  • Installing a small deck for the entrance to the kitchen and a riverfront patio/deck for outdoor dining, built using large glulam beams and composite deck boards.

Bush Construction also installed two complex door systems called Win-Dor folding doors. These door systems lead to the large dining patio. On the exterior of the building, we installed fiber cement siding, metal fascia, metal soffit, a flat TPO roof, and a shingled roof. The indoor dining areas consist of LVT floors, painted walls, and painted wood siding and exposed ceilings with painted duct.

The main entry has a storefront vestibule/waiting area with a custom hostess stand. The bar also includes custom waiter stations, bar top, and shelving for behind the bar. To complete the bar area, Bush Construction installed painted wood siding and cedar wood ceilings.

Lastly, the state-of-the-art commercial kitchen includes a keg cooler and a large cooler for food storage with a freezer on the inside as well. The finishes include FRP walls, acoustical ceiling tiles on the ceiling, and Protect All flooring. The kitchen also includes a massive 35-foot vent hood hanging above the cooking area.

Zimmerman Honda

Zimmerman Honda is a new car dealership that features a spacious showroom, standard and express service bays, and an automatic car wash bay. Zimmerman Honda features an efficient system that uses waste oil from oil changes as heating fuel. The oil is stored in a 6,000-gallon storage tank, so it never has to leave the facility. Zimmerman Honda uses radiant floor heating in its automotive shop and detail areas. Also, the dealership uses rooftop natural gas heating units to warm the administrative/office areas.
