Transit

Our extensive experience across a wide variety of projects with the Chicago Transit Authority means that we know what it takes to do successful construction work in the transit industry. We’ve worked on stations above ground, below ground, in downtown Chicago, and in outlying neighborhoods. We know that there are always space, time, and scheduling constraints; narrow, inflexible windows; safety considerations; and that funding is often tied to the completion schedule. That’s why we plan in exhaustive detail—not just Plan A, but Plans B and C as well, accounting for as many contingencies as we can. That’s also why we’ve taken the time to build deep relationships with subcontractors, allowing us to meet diversity targets while bringing together the strongest possible teams.
