ABOUT US:

Power Construction is Chicago's top General Contractor according to Crain's Chicago. But more than that, we are a culture where you can find us competing in beach volleyball or softball in Grant Park, brewing beer, attending neighborhood festivals, giving back to the community, and spending time together during a range of company-sponsored events. It’s one of the reasons we’ve been selected by our employees as a Top Workplace in Chicago, year after year. We are builders. We crave being in the field and share an appetite for innovation. We believe that bringing diverse perspectives together helps foster stronger outcomes. We are driven to wow our clients and business partners, improve our processes, hire the right people, and help them grow.
