Chicago's unique construction history and architecture make for a beautiful city...and give every new project a lot to live up to. What's expected when your company steps on the jobsite, and what can you do to meet those expectations.

University of Chicago Assistant Vice President Boyd Black - one of the driving forces behind the flurry of award-winning construction activity on the campus - will go in depth with what owners, developers, municipalities and educational interests want from a contractor during our Winter Summit, February 28 at Ridgemoor Country Club in Chicago. The program runs from noon-2:30 p.m. and will include lunch.

McShane Construction Company Vice President Mat Dougherty will describe what a general contractor looks for from the rest of its project team, and Builders Association Chairman Jimmy Akintonde of Ujamaa Construction, Inc. will give members a preview of association activity for the rest of 2013.
