Building Our Community

It is always beneficial to work close to home, but it is even a greater benefit to help the community in the process. We are presently working on a project dubbed “Rebuilding Downtown” that was the idea of Tony Rolando, Senior Account Manager for the North Central Region of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affair, and was partnered by the Canton school district, business community, building trades unions, City of Canton and the COOK Group. The projects primary goal is to provide the opportunity for vocational education students to get real life experience in commercial construction by working side by side with highly skilled Union tradesman, in order to assist the students in finding good quality careers. The project goals also include the renovation of the historic square by building a new energy efficient building that looks as if it been in place for 100 years. The new building will provide the opportunity for new development in the city’s core by creating a location for a new tax generating business. We have acted as the project manager and have been pleased that LCI can help these kids and the community and achieve this worthwhile goal!
