By 2008, Kraft needed to provide a new employee entrance to their Kedzie Avenue manufacturing facility. The one-million square foot facility had employee entrances scattered haphazardly throughout their facility, which led to security, safety, and control issues that were becoming difficult to manage. Vavrek Architects provided a solution that utilized an underused and underserved bank of offices, and converted the space into a new passageway between the employee entrance and business areas. A new company store was also added, providing a much needed and beneficial service to employees. The end result is an entry that brings the aging facility into the 21st Century and solves all the problems they had under the previous configuration.
