Skender Completes Construction on Bettinardi Golf’s New Retail Location in Oak Brook
The nearly 7,000-square-foot state-of-the-art retail and performance center will be the go-to hub for putter and wedge fittings in the Chicagoland area.
Skender recently completed construction on Studio B, an immersive shopping and performance center for golf retailer Bettinardi Golf located at 1225 W. 22nd St in Oak Brook, Illinois.
The new, 6,877-square-foot facility is located on the ground floor of a two-tower office complex, adjacent to Michael Jordan’s restaurant. It supplements the retailer’s Tinley Park corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility and features a large boutique shopping area, two private putter fitting bays, custom wedge fitting bay, ample space for events and workshops, and The Hive, a high-end, appointment-only retail space featuring a collection of the rarest Bettinardi products never to hit market.
In addition to building out the new wedge fitting bay, the private putter fitting bays and The Hive shop to provide customers with a deeper customization experience, Skender also created a lounge area with a pantry and constructed two tech-forward branded video walls over the course of the 12-week build.
“The high-end nature of this project meant our team was laser-focused on detail and end-user experience, which made it both challenging and incredibly fun to work on,” said Jacob Boyle, Senior Project Manager at Skender. “The space now provides Bettinardi customers and guests with an intimate and elevated space where they can shop, socialize and host events.
Construction started in May 2023 and wrapped up on time in August. In addition to Skender’s role as general contractor, the project team consisted of architect RGLA and Cresa, which acted as commercial broker and owner’s representative.
