Since JCS Construction’s founding in 1989, economic ups and downs have tested the staying power of many construction firms. By contrast, JCS Construction has thrived as one of the most respected names in the industry.


We have forged our solid reputation, year after year, by consistently building outstanding developments and construction projects. As we approach our fourth decade in business, that recognition from our peers is the foundation of every partnership we undertake.


With founder Jonathan Shack at the helm, JCS has completed hundreds of projects throughout Chicagoland and the Midwest.


Along the way, JCS Construction has won numerous industry awards and distinctions, including building one of the first LEED Gold condominium developments in Chicago’s suburbs. More importantly, we have earned the trust of clients and professional partners drawn to our reliable, transparent approach. Backed by a conscientious, respectful ethos that is ingrained in our staff’s culture, we take pride in completing projects on time and within budget.  Thanks to our principal’s development experience, JCS is uniquely positioned to work with developers, owners and design teams from inception to completion.


JCS understands the relationship between a project’s total cost and its market value.  Working effectively and collaboratively alongside the design team, we help establish clear budgeting that applies value engineering and other cost controls. In addition, we have a longstanding reputation for being responsive to end users through the warranty and beyond.


On new construction, whether it’s a vanilla box buildout, a precise restoration or a new building, our experienced project managers and tradespeople bring their skill and attention to detail to every project.


Our standard is  professional reliability and exceptional quality, from the smallest of details to the project’s big picture—and always at a competitive rate.


Getting started on the right footing is pivotal to any project’s long-term success, particularly in a competitive market where the edge goes to those best equipped to streamline costs. So, even if your project is in its conceptual stages, give us a call to maximize your benefit from working with us.




JCS CONSTRUCTION has completed a multitude of projects throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and beyond. We are well versed in streamlining the process, to save you both time and money.
