DEERFIELD, ILL. — Krusinski Construction Co. has received a $12.2 million contract to develop the first phase of a new synagogue for Congregation B’nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim located at 1201 Lake Cook Rd. in Deerfield. The three-building development, which will be constructed in two phases, is situated on the site of an existing office complex. Congregation B’nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim is relocating from its current facility in Glenview, Ill. As part of the 46,000-square-foot first phase, two existing buildings will be partially demolished and replaced with a 600-seat sanctuary, a social hall that can hold up to 1,000 people, a village center, offices, and five pre-school classrooms with an outdoor playground. Phase II will include a 21,500-square-foot educational wing for the congregation’s religious school and adult education classes. The start date for Phase II has not been determined. Jerry Krusinski and Michael Metz of Krusinski Construction Co. are the project executives. Graham Harwood of Owner Services Group is representing the owner during construction.
