Powers & Sons Construction is excited to announce that the Lakeside Alliance has been selected to be the Construction Manager for the Obama Presidential Center. Our team is comprised of a Joint Venture between Turner Construction Company, Powers & Sons Construction, UJAMAA Construction, Inc., Brown & Momen, Inc., and Safeway Construction Company, Inc.
“The creation of this joint venture will ensure that minority firms from the South Side will be in significant leadership positions in the construction of the Obama Presidential Center,” as stated in the press release.
The Obama Presidential Center will be located in Jackson Park on the South Side of Chicago, near The University of Chicago’s campus. The center will feature a forum building, a museum, a library, a plaza, and an athletic center. The majority of these spaces will be free and open to the public.
While construction is not slated to begin until late 2018, our team will immediately begin providing pre-construction services during the project’s remaining design phase.
Our selection as the team to lead the construction of the Obama Presidential Center is a tremendous honor. Congratulations to the Lakeside Alliance Team!
