Elliot Construction steers away from big box projects and toward challenging projects with unique design elements that might deter other contractors. “The harder the job will be to complete, the more competitive our price will be,” says president Dan Hagen. Elliot has worked on such Chicago landmarks as Millennium Park and the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, as well as 30 waterparks. The company uses electronic optical surveying equipment and conveyors and pumps to place concrete.
Elliot views its contractor customers, subcontractors, and suppliers as partners, and invites prospective customers to contact them. “Our subs are a reflection of us, so we foster excellent relationships with them to ensure a team approach,” says Hagen. “We pay all subs within 30 days of receiving their invoice, often before we get paid for their work.”
