Photos: Check Out the Completed Fox River Grove Public Works Facility


We recently completed managing the construction of the Fox River Grove Public Works Facility. The new Public Works Facility includes 4 double depth vehicle storage and maintenance bays, equipment storage, a break/meeting room, and office space. The project also included a salt storage facility, site work, and parking.

This new facility replaces an aging public works garage and allows Fox River Grove Public Works to have seasonal work equipment all under one roof. It houses the village’s public works trucks and keeps their crews together so they can deploy more efficiently using modern facilities.

Lamp Incorporated acted as the Construction Manager for the project. We worked with Project Architect Firm Kluber Architects + Engineers, Architect Chris Hansen.

Check out a few photos of the completed project:

A Look Back: ECC Health and Life Sciences Building Celebrates 5 Years


In December 2011, Lamp Incorporated completed the construction of the new Elgin Community College Health and Life Sciences Building. The 160,450 square foot building was completed 6 months ahead of schedule and $8 million under budget.

The building includes state-of-the-art healthcare training facilities, including classrooms and labs for the nursing and dental programs. The facility achieved LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification. It also earned several other awards and honors, including:

  • Wisconsin American Institute of Architects (AIA) Honor Award
  • Construction Industry Service Corp. (CISCO) Pride in Construction Award – New Construction – Suburbs (above $20 million) Category
  • Featured in the 2014 Architectural and Interior Design Edition of Learning by Design
  • Outstanding Design by American School and University Magazine in their 2014 Educational Interiors Showcase

Lamp Incorporated acted as Construction Manager on the project. Kluber, Inc. was the Project Architect firm.

Paul Dawson, ECC’s Managing Director of Construction Projects, said, “I’ve known Lamp Incorporated since 1992 when I worked with Earl Lamp on the Visual and Performing Arts Center. They are the most honest contractor that I’ve ever dealt with. ‘Transparency’ is the word I’d like to use for them.” Dawson was impressed with the cost savings of 20 percent on the budget for the Health and Life Sciences building. “That money allowed us to do other things on our referendum,” said Dawson.

Lamp Incorporated Supports First Look for Charity at Chicago Auto Show


In early February, a large group from Lamp Incorporated attended the First Look for Charity gala at McCormick Place, an exclusive pre-opening black-tie benefit organized by the Chicago Auto Show. We were proud to be there to support our client, Advocate Health. The event raises money for local charities and is one of Chicagoland’s largest single-day charitable events. This year, the gala supported 18 area nonprofits. Advocate Health’s beneficiary was the Advocate Heart Institute and the Advocate Children’s Heart Institute, for pediatric and adolescent patients.
