A Highly Principled approach

Executive Construction is a general contractor based in the Chicagoland area whose work is underscored by a highly principled approach to business. Collaboration is in our DNA. For over 50 years, we established ourselves as a trusted partner to nationally-recognized architects and real estate firms, creating unique spaces for notable clients and Fortune 500 companies.

Team members lead construction on projects sized from $50,000 to $100M within the new construction, interiors, and mission critical markets.

Two offices comprised of 175+ professionals, including union tradespersons that make up our field forces.

Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) customizes technology approach to visualize existing conditions and build progress; and enhance coordination and prefabrication.

While the majority of our builds occur in and around Chicago, we continue to expand our builds across the country, particularly with mission critical clients and through our virtual design and construction (VDC) services.

For over 50 years, our portfolio has filled with collaborations on data centers; educational and not for profit institutions; banks and trading floors; corporate offices and law firms; building infrastructure and hospitality; retail and industrial buildings; and laboratories and healthcare spaces.
