Construction Testimonials

“Our Boys and Girls Club construction project was more complicated than most. We had to maintain partial occupancy while demolishing one building that had been connected for 130 years. We then added a new building and gut rehabbed the existing for a brand-new complex. We formed an extremely successful team and our expectations were exceeded, thanks to the finest contractors I’ve ever worked with. Great communications and they always went the extra mile to ensure quality and service. Tandem Construction gets my enthusiastic endorsement and thanks for a job well done.”
CON Sacred Heart Schools
“In their function as general contractor for Sacred Heart Schools, Tandem Construction has managed two projects for us. Both projects were completed on time and within budget with quality workmanship. The spaces met our hopes to expand our programs, and they are beautiful.

I believe a key to Tandem’s success is the relationships they have developed with subcontractors in every trade. A loyalty exists there that helps ensure that a project will be successful....

CON MG Group
“I am happy with all aspects of our business relationship. They anticipate problems. They don’t fight fires. They prevent fires. They are extremely organized and they are good value seekers. They don’t just go for the most expensive finish. And they are honest. When they tell you X, it’s X. It’s not Y or Z or part of X. It happens. People would be lucky to work with them. They’re very busy. If you’re able to work with them you’re very fortunate.”

“We worked with Tandem on a few projects one being a luxury condo remodel in downtown Chicago. Tandem was extremely detail orientated, organized and truly cared about the project. The work performed was high-quality and well crafted. Communication was also excellent during the entire course of the project which was crucial because the client did not live in Chicago. We found Tandem to be an excellent contractor and look forward to working with them on the next project and referring them to our clients. Thanks Tandem!”
