About us

Since our inception in 2002, Cordos Development & Associates has earned an impressive reputation for excellence in the Chicagoland construction industry. Rather than specialize in particular market, building, or construction types, we specialize instead in being truly client-focused.

That over 80 percent of our work is for repeat clients has enabled Cordos to expand in size and expertise: from new construction to complex repurposing, from historic restoration to hospitality, from high-end residence to large scale demolition; from industrial to multi-family.

When it comes to our clients, there is no project too large or small. And whether as general contractor, CM, or design builder, there is no project delivery in which Cordos has not successfully completed its assignments, on time and within budget. This philosophy flows directly from Cordos’s principals, who bring to each project a collective expertise from allied professions, including real estate development, architecture, engineering, and law. We apply as balanced and informed an approach to our client’s underlying business goals as we do to constructing their buildings.


Cordos takes great pride in our exemplary safety record. We have maintained an Experience Modification Rate of well under 1.00 and have a Total Recordable Incident Rate of 0.00 over the last five years. While we employ a rigorous safety program, our principals choose to lead by example, each with 30 hour OSHA certifications. This not only provides our clients with the peace of mind, but also results in safe environments for our employees and subcontractors.
