Achieving “Ground Breaking” Success

In early October, PBS participated in the ground breaking ceremony for Rhino Baseball’s new indoor training facility at 301 Gregory Court in Shorewood, IL. When it opens, it will provide baseball players with advanced training and development, while preparing them for their future endeavors.

Representing PBS at the ceremony were Chad Charon, vice president, Bryan Reiser, vice president of operations and Brad Podowski, marketing manager. They were joined, among others, by Greg Blaesing, president of Rhino Baseball, Andrew Tehako, co-owner/operations manager of Rhino, Kelley Chrisse of the Village of Shorewood, plan commission board members and village board members to officially break ground on the property.

“Choosing PBS for this design-build was the best decision we could have made,” said Greg Blaesing. 

“From our first meeting with PBS, Chad, Bryan, Erik and the rest of the staff have been amazing and their customer service second to none. Choosing PBS for this design-build was the best decision we could have made,” said Greg Blaesing. This project has involved close communications between Rhino Baseball and PBS as a single source of delivery between owner and the PBS design-build team. “By taking the time together to carefully plan a facility which will inevitably be a tool for the expansion of what is already an incredible program, this design-build process has allowed Rhino Baseball to ensure that what was being designed would meet their needs as well as overall budget,” said Chad Charon.

When complete, the 50,000 square-foot state of the art facility, designed and built by PBS, will include a major league-sized clear span infield, a 60 yard dash track, long toss area, 6 full length batting cages, a weight room, and a classroom.

“We shopped our project around to a number of different design-build companies. Ultimately we chose PBS because they were competitively priced, their whole staff was responsive and engaged, and they truly care for their customers long-term success,” said Blaesing. PBS is honored to be in partnership with Rhino Baseball and working alongside the Village of Shorewood to bring this state-of-the-art facility to life.

PBS is experienced in the planning, design and construction of many different types of facilities throughout Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, including a portfolio of successful commercial, industrial, church and municipal projects.
