Proudly Serving Chicago and Northern Illinois

PCI has always been guided by one principle—our quality would be exemplary, while our pricing would remain competitive. More than 5,000 projects later, that principle has distinguished us in the industry. We have been given considerable opportunities, and through them, we have consistently enhanced our reputation for excellence in subcontracting. Our accomplishments span every type of construction project, the simple and the complex, the short term and the long duration. We bring ambition and pride to every job, from tenant buildouts to showcase projects throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and northern Illinois.

Whether a contract is $20,000 or $20 million, we bring the highest standards of performance and professionalism. Each client benefits from the expertise of our estimating and project management staff, with more than 100 years of collective experience. Our support staff contributes punctual and thorough documentation. Our seasoned labor team is deeply competent and committed to PCI and its practices. We gladly acknowledge our employees’ strengths, we reward good work, and we have earned loyalty as a result. The entire PCI team is dedicated to each project.

Tenant Development

Our attention to detail in tenant work has elevated PCI to an elite category, shared by few. We have constructed offices for some of the finest companies in the world—recognized major corporations and successful start-ups. Our clientele consists of general contractors, architects, designers, developers, and owners—who all want construction of the highest quality at the right price. While each client has their individual needs, they all benefit from what PCI delivers.

Mercantile / Retail

A mall, a build-out, a freestanding store or the flagship location—the construction of any of these commercial spaces is within our scope. PCI Tempus works efficiently and adheres to schedule while creating retail environments, whether they’re ornate boutiques of significant complexity or simple warehouse environments. From Michigan Avenue to Rockford, PCI has been building for northern Illinois commerce since 1979.

Office Buildings - Core & Shell

Take the concrete and steel skeleton of a structure—the bare bones. And transform this into a habitable working space. It’s no small challenge, but it’s one that we are well-prepared to address. With decades of experience and a passion for construction, PCI does it right. Our base building work is a great success, often leading to tenant development projects within the same structure.

Hi & Mid-Rise / Residential

PCI consistently offers our customers competitive pricing along with peace of mind—the knowledge that the project will receive the attention necessary to make it a success for all involved. We are a well-organized company that insists on providing a quality-finished product.

Our residential portfolio consists of low-, mid- and hi-rise developments, single- and multi-building projects, throughout northern Illinois. We have a breadth of experience in stocking the job, coordinating our specialized labor forces, and logistically making the most challenging schedules a reality.

Hospitality / Assisted Living

PCI has what it takes to create a quality living environment. We ensure proper construction of the food preparation, health maintenance, meeting, dwelling, and banquet facilities that exist in these properties. We build out hotels and senior living facilities that create a custom atmosphere, as well as those which follow a corporate theme. Many successful projects can be seen across metropolitan Chicago and the surrounding suburban plains.

Municipal Projects

We feel a strong sense of purpose when we are involved with educational, recreational and the other public use facilities that benefit a community. These efforts help enhance the quality of life of families in Chicagoland. We appreciate the privilege of applying our quality standards and professionalism to the construction of these facilities.

Specialty Projects

Creative, abstract, modern, challenging and original. That is how we characterize some of the “specialty” projects that we have been fortunate enough to have assigned to PCI.

Our work with the House of Blues is one noteworthy example. We built out a flagship six-story restaurant/music theater…and started it without the benefit of construction plans. Our performance earned us the confidence of this valued client, who then sent our team cross-country to do it again.

There are other stories of special opportunities and successful results. We would like to rise to your challenge.

Our Experience Adds Efficiency and Value to Every Project

With PCI on the job, you’ll benefit by working with experts in the industry who consistently provide help throughout the project. Being schedule sensitive and using proprietary labor and material control systems allow us to achieve high levels of efficiency. Our goal is to create maximum value for our customers in Chicago and northern Illinois.



Industry Leader in Safety

PCI’s culture of safety makes the difference. A safe work environment is the foundation that PCI was built upon. Our award-winning “Target Zero Incidents” safety program is absolutely integral to every project. This program provides training and keeps workers fully dedicated and accountable to the safety and integrity of your project and property. This is reflected by an EMR safety rating that far exceeds national standards.
