Loomis Armored US LLC is preparing for the estimated $3.6 million build-out for its expansion into Imeson Landing Business Park in North Jacksonville.

The city is reviewing a permit application for Construction Services Inc. of Tampa to renovate 29,400 square feet of space at 1250 Imeson Park Blvd., No. 300.

Phil Durbin, vice president of projects with JLL in Houston, is the project manager.

He expects the project will be ready for Loomis to relocate from Spring Park in July.

Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. is the civil engineer for the project, called Loomis Armored US Terminal Facility tenant renovation.

Developer Merritt Properties announced Sept. 27 that it signed Loomis US as its first tenant at Imeson Landing Business Park to  expand local operations.
