Cord Construction is a diverse design-build general contractor and construction firm offering superior, professional construction services throughout the Midwest. We’ve worked with a variety of companies to complete projects of varying size, type, budget and complexity. Each of our projects has a highly skilled project manager, who assumes full responsibility for the project from beginning to end. This provides you with direct access to a single key decision maker, who is responsible for monitoring costs and progress while providing continuity throughout the project.

Want your project managed by the best? Cord has proven history of shortening construction timelines, advising clients how their design choices will impact their cost/timeline, managing subcontractors, and keeping projects on budget and on schedule.
Want Cord to manage your jobsite? Our Project Superintendents coordinate day-to-day activities and monitor work quality, in addition to managing site equipment, subcontractors and materials providers.
"Cord has completed numerous projects for Anderson Packaging, including a major 270,000 square-foot addition. I choose to partner exclusively with Cord Construction for many reasons, including quality, a commitment to the timeline and customer service. My project manager is available to me at all times and works very closely with us. One item in particular that I have found most helpful is the project manager’s willingness to personally help me understand something about the construction process. He takes the time to speak to me in ‘layman’s’ terms, giving me the ability to make an intelligent decision."
"From start to finish, Cord's team was professional, knowledgeable and, best of all, responsive to our needs. I do not recall one single day during the construction process when a member of their team was unavailable to answer our questions – and we asked many questions! When we build our next building, I will call Cord first."
"When Panasonic made the decision to remodel their warehouse in Buffalo Grove, Illinois and convert the space into a Permanent Tradeshow location, a thorough bid process began. After comprehensive consideration, the General Contractor was selected and Cord Construction was awarded the contract. I was pleased with that decision throughout the entire process. The paper flow of the invoicing and work order system was impeccable. There were never any surprises...I was always informed. I would not hesitate to contract Cord for future projects. I have the highest confidence in their organization on all levels."
"Our decision to develop our own lot and our timing of beginning construction during the winter presented challenges from the start. Cord deserves special mention for their persistence in getting us through the design and scheduling phases ever mindful of the budget we had set. On-time, on-budget and in a wonderful facility - we could not be happier with our new building and the building experience shared with the Cord Construction team."
"The Cord management team was hard-working, trustworthy, detail-orientated and dedicated to providing the Polo district with a quality product. The project was competed under-budget, ahead of time and with a minimum of hassle. The Polo community, the Polo School Board members and the District administration and staff view the project as an outstanding success."
