Cermak-McCormick Place Elevated Green Line Wins National APWA Recognition
F.H. Paschen (Paschen) is pleased to announce that The American Public Works Association (APWA) has selected the Cermak-McCormick Place Elevated Green Line Station as a co-recipient in the National Structures $25 million to $75 million category of the APWA Public Works Projects of the Year for 2016.
As General Contractor for the job, Paschen built the new Cermak Road Elevated Station on the CTA Green Line. Work on the project included the construction of a new rail station with an innovative design involving a 260’ long tunnel structure with stainless steel and translucent panels. It includes three separate station houses and two elevator towers. The station opened to the public in February 2015.
The award will be presented at the annual APWA Awards Recognition Ceremony, held in conjunction with the 2016 PWX Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Monday, August 29, 2016 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Paschen congratulates our team that was involved in this project for this prestigious achievement.
