Working in partnership with major hotel franchises as well as boutique hotels, we have handled major new construction and renovation projects for clients including the Chicago Hilton, Chicago Fairmont and The James Hotel (Chicago).

Commercial

Our commercial work encompasses a diverse range of projects including retail centers, industrial projects and corporate renovations for companies such as AAR Corp., Midwest Truck & Auto Parts, Mechanical Servants, and Mid-Res.

Residential

We continue to build off what has historically been the foundation of our business. Over the past fifty years Crane has constructed more than 10,000 apartment units. These have ranged from top-end condominiums to multi-family apartments including senior housing.

Development

Several years ago, Crane Construction Company LLC started a development arm specializing solely in affordable, independent senior housing. In 2013, we completed our first 81-unit affordable senior housing development in Glendale Heights, Ill. a suburb of Chicago. Our motivation for this type of work stems from the desire to take on worthwhile projects that fill a need and improve quality of life. Future projects are currently being developed by our affiliate company GC Housing Development LLC.
