McHugh Construction and Bowa Construction complete indoor track and field facility in Pullman
REJournals – James McHugh Construction Co., one of the country’s largest commercial contractors with a concentration in sports facility construction, along with its joint venture partner Bowa Construction, an award-winning African American-owned general contractor, today announced construction has been completed on the $53.67 million Indoor Track & Field Facility at Gately Park, which houses Illinois’ first hydraulically banked, Olympic-grade running track. Located at 10201 S. Cottage Grove Ave. in Chicago’s historic Pullman neighborhood, the new facility puts Chicago on the map for collegiate and international competitions.
“This project serves as a model of collaboration between public and private entities and nonprofit organizations to create a facility where world-class athletes can achieve their top performance,” said Andy Totten, project executive for McHugh Construction, a firm with a long history of building sports facilities, including Chicago’s United Center; Advocate Center, the Chicago Bulls’ practice facility; and Fifth Third Arena, the Chicago Blackhawks’ practice facility and community ice rink. “It’s also very rewarding to work on a state-of the-art project that is accessible not just to athletes training for the Olympics, but everyone in the community, regardless of age or experience. A facility like this can open up track and field to a whole new generation.”
