Solving problems. These project pages demonstrate a few projects that illustrate the work we do. Often, our projects contain a problem that other contractors have either been unable or unwilling to solve in a cost-saving and effective manner.
[rev_slider wolfgang]Northwest Contractors, Inc. has been privileged to build three Wolfgang Puck restaurants at O’Hare International Airport. Each exhibits the famous multicolored, cracked mosaic tile work and intricate, multicolored, stained millwork. The requirement that the store in the Terminal Three security checkpoint be built within a structural facade made this job particularly interesting. However, when this project schedule began, the construction of the facade had not been completed. In fact, the design for the facade was not completed. Consequently, the airport asked Northwest Contractors to build the facade as part of our Wolfgang Puck project. We accepted this challenge, assisted in the completion of the design, built the facade and restaurant, and completed the $3.5 million of construction in ten weeks–on time for the grand opening with the commissioner of aviation as host and special guest, Mr. Wolfgang Puck.
The vertical steel tubes on the left in this image hint at the over arching structural facade which we built within.
Today, we still provide services to these restaurants whenever the need arises. Our relationships with our clients never gets “severed”–we are in this business to help our customers achieve success, and that means that we are always here to answer questions or provide new materials that fit the structure we built.
Effective coordination and intricate knowledge of our craft and time line management meant that everyone showed up to do their part when their part needed to be done. Wolfgang Puck was scheduled to open on a certain day, and when that day came, Wolfgang himself was there and congratulated us on “a job well done and on time.”
