Construction Services

Let LG Construction be your General Contractor (GC) for residential living spaces like high-end single family homes (our original business), or multi-family condos, townhomes or apartment buildings. Our customized design-build and pre-construction services make sure you get exactly what you want for your lifestyle and budget, with no surprises. We listen, and inform. We believe that building a custom home should be a fun, participatory experience for you, without worry, anxiety, or unpredictability.

We bring our experience in high-end residential construction to the challenges of building for the commercial world, too. Everything from high-rise office build-outs, to retail stores, to upscale restaurants, our customer service driven construction practices and unrelenting attention to detail keep you on time and on budget.

Most builders disappear when the project is complete. Not LG Construction. LG Advantage is our construction warranty service that kicks in when you move in. We’ll assign a dedicated team to take care of any unexpected repair needs long after construction is finished. We even offer seasonal maintenance reminders to help keep your property running like new (well, nearly so) for years to come. And LG Advantage is available only to LG Construction customers.

Step by step, start to finish, breathe easy.

We take pride in the relationships we build. We deliver exactly what we say. It's our integrity that wins us projects. LG Construction + Development is a one-stop shop for design/construction: From attorneys, inspectors and real estate agents to architects, designers and engineers...we create cohesion.

Design Build

  1. Assemble project team.

    Recommend and participate in the meeting and hiring of architects, interior designers, engineers, and permit expeditors. Assist with contract negotiations and definition of scope of work.

  2. Define project scope and budget.

    Facilitate the development of the home parameters (size, beds, bath, etc) and goal budget.

  3. Create the conceptual design.

    Generate a “wish list” of home features, attributes, and finishes and define the style/theme of the home. Sketch floor plans provided by the architect and finishes options.

  4. Formalize the detailed design.

    Manage the creation of computer based blueprints / floor plans. Begin the finishes selection process (tile, etc). Iteratively price designs and establish comparative options to align with the budget.

  5. Value engineering.

    Work with the project team and LG sub-contractors and suppliers to optimize the value of the design and finishes within the budget.

  6. Entitlements and permitting.

    Work with and guide the building permit process with permit expediters and the City of Chicago.

  7. Construction management / general contracting.

    Oversee all aspects of construction, including project schedule, sub-contracting of labor, ordering of materials, and on-site quality assurance and safety.

Construction - Pre-Construction

Construction – Pre-Construction

Success starts before the start. Before lifting a single shovel or driving a single nail, we make sure we – and you – know exactly what we’re going to do. You’ll be confident we’ll get the big picture right, and every last detail. LG’s pre-construction checklist covers every professional and every item every step of the way, including:

  • Assembling the right project team, from architects to attorneys, designers and engineers, realtors and inspectors, builders and finishers
  • Defining the scope and budget of your project, creating the design concept, and formalizing the blueprints
  • Securing all necessary permits, ordering materials, establishing the building schedule, and ensuring on-site safety

You’ll be involved and informed at every stage, and have the peace of mind that comes from knowing there will be no surprises. A satisfied customer is our number one priority.
