Since our founding in 1988, ICG has been providing construction management and general contracting services for interior tenant development, renovation, restoration, and select base building construction in the Chicago Metropolitan Area. ICG is proud of its history and is committed to maintaining the highest level of professional integrity expected by our clients and staff.
The founders of ICG continue to lead the company today:
Steve J. Zuwala, President, LEED AP, Founder

Douglas E. Anderson, Officer, Treasurer
A trusted name in construction for over twenty years, ICG continues to act as an advocate for clients, always putting teamwork and quality of workmanship at the forefront of the organization. We pride ourselves on being a progressive company. Remaining in tune with what is important to our clients and the architectural and design community has always been a key component to our success. ICG's co-founder and President decided to obtain LEED accreditation and implement sustainable practices throughout ICG. In 2007, we relocated our office and received LEED CI Gold Certification from the USGBC. To accommodate our new way of being, we revamped how we think about everything from electricity usage to indoor air quality. We are reducing the impact of our office energy consumption by purchasing clean wind energy in the form of renewable energy credits. As a result we are able to share our experience with clients seeking the same type of transformation for their companies.
ICG is signatory to the collective bargaining agreements for the laborers' union. Except for general labor and demolition, the construction on our projects is performed by subcontractors. Subcontracting enables us to focus on our skills as managers and select the ideal subcontractors for each project while maintaining competitive pricing and quality construction.
ICG has established an excellent safety record. We are continuously working with our insurance carrier and risk management consultant to maintain our safety program and favorable insurance rating.
ICG controls field and overhead costs through an integrated job cost system allowing management access to the most current job cost information enabling us to turn around timely and accurate proposals and reporting. Our superintendents work in a "virtual field office" on the jobsite, equipped with a phone, fax, laptop, printer, internet and office server access. This enables our superintendents to quickly resolve issues and be in constant contact with the entire team.
