A Letter from our President

As you may have read or heard, Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul has recently filed a lawsuit against Drive Construction, relating to previous disputes involving our union carpenter partners represented by Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council.

This action was not surprising as we have been aware of this matter for quite some time. We strongly disagree with the allegations that have been made against Drive Construction and intend to fight to protect our reputation. We realize the process ahead will be time consuming and labor intensive but when it comes to our reputation, we have no choice. In the meantime, we will continue to operate with the same integrity and transparency that has helped build this company.

Since our founding in 2005, we have always and consistently operated with integrity and transparency. Our operations have been driven by clarity and virtue for our clients, partners, and employees alike. Through our partnerships we have helped to generate thousands of jobs and have worked on both public and private projects throughout Illinois. As a Minority Business Enterprise, we understand the value of working hard, working together, and building a company from the ground up without cutting corners. That mantra has stuck with us and continues to be the basis for how we operate our business.

Throughout this process, our focus remains on you, our clients, our subcontractors and our vendors to continue to provide a timely and responsible building experience. Moving forward, we will keep you updated on any new developments. Please feel free to contact us at info@driveconstruction.com as we are more than happy to discuss this with you and answer any questions you may have.
