Thinking science labs?
Our Health and Science Team can help.

For more than 30 years, Power Construction has been one of Chicago's most respected and prolific builders of small and large commercial and university science lab and prototype production facilities.

We spend a boatload of time early in the process helping prospective clients and their consultants work through a range of decision variables: Location. New construction versus conversion/renovation. Right-sizing space for today and tomorrow. Value enhancement. Speed to occupancy.

In those early meetings, Power provides input on property acquisition, program and scope, test-fit pricing, and a design/build schedule. Knowing speed is crucial, we've adapted lean practices into what we call our Rapid Deployment Method (RDM). RDM blends lean design/build tools and practices to eliminates waste associated with standard design and construction protocol. Key to success is transparency, trust, and collaboration from Day One.

Let's explore the possibilities.

Healthy Places by Power

In these challenging times of Covid19, the Healthy Places by Power program enables organizations to quickly determine the optimal mix of facility solutions needed to provide safety and peace of mind to the occupants of their buildings whether they be employees, patients, customers or visitors. A 30-minute Zoom call is all it takes to get the evaluation and planning process started.

Healthy Places by Power is led by a dedicated core team of subject matter experts and staffed with engineering and construction professionals. Together, they bring an array of experience in planning, constructing and renovating healthcare, workplace, multi-family, mixed-use and education facilities. Specialized team knowledge includes such critical disciplines as MEP building systems, infection control, building enclosure systems, working in occupied environments as well as LEED and WELL.

Being a trusted Chicago-based construction partner for nearly a century is only impressive if you look at what it’s taught us and how it’s equipped us to serve our clients, our team and our community.

In that time, we have helped people to realize big dreams, conquer seemingly impossible challenges and create stunning work that becomes part of our city’s iconic landscape.

We’ve also developed specialty teams that are obsessed with their area of focus and are intimately familiar with the unique demands of specific industries and project types.

Chicago is our home. We’re proud to be a part of its past, present and future as we partner with inspiring companies and people to bring spectacular visions to life.
