ICI has been recognized often during the course of our company’s history for our quality workmanship, jobsite safety and our dedication to our projects and our teammates. From restaurants to schools to auto dealerships, our various project awards reinforce the construction excellence ICI delivers on every project.


“ICI was hired to plan and execute a major renovation at West Leyden High School. The project includes significant interior renovations for a complete new serving kitchen, a student commons/cafeteria addition for the courtyard, and much more. ICI prepared a 350 point bid schedule that clearly defined the path of execution and sequence for both the bidders and our building administration. Their effort in preparation exceeded our expectations as well as setting a high level of confidence with completion as we can track the progress.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the ICI team for an outstanding job at the 550 West Washington building in Chicago. The workmanship of the space and the total cost not only met our expectations but came in lower than budget. We have been in the new space for a few months now and are very pleased. Thank you especially for having your team follow-up with our employees after move in to make sure that everyone was comfortable. It has been my experience with your company that the details are always taken care of on all our projects.

“One of the best decisions [a client] could make would be to secure the services of International Contractors, Inc.
The personal and professional services that your firm provides are second to none. When you hire ICI you hire much more than a Construction Manager. You hire a whole host of competent professionals who are dedicated to seeing each job completed from start to finish to the complete satisfaction of the customer. And, ICI does so in a manner which earns them your respect and appreciation for their loyalty and genuine concern for the wellbeing of the school district and the people behind that district, especially those in leadership positions. When you hire ICI you will not only appreciate the business partnership formed, but also the friendship that will be built. They are an outstanding firm to work with!”

“Building a 14,000 square foot first class restaurant in Chicago has the potential to be a complicated deal for an out-of-state company. Choosing ICI to be the general contractor proved to be the smartest decision made by Fogo de Chão. From the subcontractors employed to its own team of associates, attention to the details and good workmanship are trademarks of your company that I have come to appreciate. I would recommend without hesitation anyone considering building in Chicago to consult with ICI.”
