Partner With Us to Build What Matters
Power provides construction services for select commercial and institutional clients in and around the northern Illinois markets. With every project, we count on the subcontracting community to help us exceed our client’s expectations for quality and collaboration.
Our Safety Program is an integral part of the construction project. Full-time safety and health professionals are involved in the planning activities beginning at the preconstruction phase of all Power projects. Potential liability exposures are identified and managed through site survey (outside professionals document pre-existing conditions if necessary), communication with utilities companies, and with adjacent buildings or communities.
In addition to full-time safety professionals, Power employs 19 site safety coordinators. They have each completed a 12-month training regimen which qualifies them to assist project management in safety issues, conduct daily site safety meetings, and eliminate safety hazards. These individuals are also either union carpenters or laborers, but they have the authority to stop work at any time if an employee, the public or a subcontractor’s employees are at risk.
Power's Safety Program meets or exceeds OSHA requirements and is continuously updated and improved. It includes:
- Comprehensive Substance Abuse Program including pre-employment testing.
- Utility Locate Program to avoid contact with overhead and underground utilities.
- Field Management Policies to help manage safety on the job site.
- New employee training that includes a two-phase safety orientation for all new employees and a green hard-hat program to help us mentor new employees.
- Comprehensive and specific training for all employees as it relates to their work.
Power uses project management tools to collaborate electronically on many of its projects, enabling project participants to access and enter data in real time. If you already have a log in, click the link below to access Power's CMiC Collaboration.

The Qualification Process
Our process of subcontractor selection begins with a review of basic company information. This process results in a list of highly qualified subcontractors throughout the Chicago area. Your cooperation is most appreciated.
In order to maintain our subcontractor/supplier database, we require that each subcontractor participate in an initial qualification process and provide periodic updates. The link below will direct you to a self-service questionnaire for completion.
