Novak Construction Adds to Growing Grocery List

ROMEOVILLE, IL – Alongside Romeoville Mayor, John Noak, Novak Construction’s project team attended the ribbon-cutting this morning to commemorate the 2,060sf expansion and remodel at the Aldi store located at 398 S. Weber Road.

The original Romeoville store was built in 2009, and the remodel represents this popular grocer’s bid to become one of the largest chains in the U.S. The new look features a more modern design, open ceilings, a larger floor plan, additional refrigeration space and a reconfigured checkout area. Construction also incorporated environmentally-friendly building materials.

“Novak is excited to be a part of Aldi’s growth and reinvestment in the community,” noted Project Director, Steve Bykowski. “This remodel work represents the commitment to enhancing their customers’ experience. We are honored to be a part of this new partnership.” Novak’s grocery division is one of the company’s most active in its overall construction portfolio.

In addition to Bykowski, today’s ceremony was attended by Novak colleagues Greg Terwilliger (VP -Bus. Devt.), Karen Rugh (Sr. Project Manager), Trevor Stoltz (Project Manager) and Michael Lestina (Project Superintendent).
