Historic Building’s Renovation Provides New Home For McCormick 

McCormick Systems was growing. The old Odd Fellows’ Hall in nearby Chandler, AZ, sat abandoned – an eyesore in the heart of the downtown area. As it turns out, this was a marriage made in Heaven!

Built in 1928 by the Odd Fellows, the building included a first-floor armory, with meeting rooms upstairs. “It had been abandoned for about a decade, and we knew there would be challenges, starting right with the demolition,” says Jack McCormick, the company CEO.

“We got it completely demo’d, down to the bare inside walls. We jacked up and rebuilt the roof, which was sagging about one and one-half feet in the center.”

What’s more, the new McCormick Systems home – the first building it has owned in its 22-year history – features some nice touches, including:

·        antique doors;

·        windows match the original exterior look; and

·        stucco was removed from interior walls, letting the original brick show through.

Today, 25 McCormick Systems employees work in the new building, with additional accommodations for as many as 10 additional staff members.
