Cermak Market’s creates a pleasant shopping experience for customers and working environment for store employees
Cermak Fresh Market is a fast-growing regional grocery store in the Chicago and Milwaukee. The grocer opened a 70,000-square-foot store that anchors The Fields, a 1.5 million-square-foot redevelopment on the Northwest side of Chicago. The space that Cermak Fresh Market occupies is located on the ground floor on one corner of The Fields complex. The original building included ridge-style skylights to bring in light. However, they were now in bad condition: discolored glass, rust, broken seals, energy inefficient and cumbersome hand-crank functionality.
VELUX replaced four existing ridge-style skylights with VELUX Ridgelights 25-40 and an old single-slope, structural skylight with a VELUX Longlight. The VELUX Ridgelight 25-40 is a classic looking skylight solution consisting of two rows of self-supporting skylights that add natural light and openness to the areas below. It’s mounted on standard steel profiles that enables a fast installation and a safe, economical building process. The VELUX Longlight 5-25 is a single series of Modular Skylights ideal for adding natural light to larger room, corridors and hallways. It has a low-pitch design for flat roofs where a low profile is preferred. The longlight also features plug-and-play installation that saves time.
Cermak Market’s skylights make for a unique shopping experience not found at other stores. Updating the skylights creates a pleasant shopping experience for customers and working environment for store employees.
