History, Tradition and Honor
Three generations ago, Leo Michuda, Sr. founded Michuda Construction with a passion for superior craftsmanship. He started his career as an interior carpenter for the Pullman Rail Car Factory on Chicago's South Side. During this time, he gilded the finely crafted interiors of personal rail cars for the Vanderbilt, the Rockefeller, and the Morgan families.
Ten years later, Leo Michuda, Jr. joined his father, carrying the company into its second generation. Our successful tradition continued under Leo A. Michuda, son of Leo Michuda, Jr. It was in this third generation that the company built its reputation as a premier design builder for Chicago area schools and a leader of complex renovation work.
Leo's sons Mark A. Michuda and Josef L. Michuda joined the firm in the 1980s, assuming management of operations in 1990. Each man has leveraged his unique management approach and construction talents to the company’s benefit. Among their innovations are their strategic planning processes, the most recent example of which is Michuda Mobile. In the last two decades, Michuda has established itself as an expert in the health care industry while continuing to assert its authority in the commercial and education sectors.
