Featured Project: Governor's Mansion

Originally built in 1855 the mansion has a major addition in 1970-72. The facility is now the largest governor's mansion in the country, exceeding 49,000 sf.

March 2017 IEMA (Illinois Executive Mansion Association) requested bids from five approved general contractors selected from a statewide RFQ. R.D. Lawrence was selected as one of the five. After receiving bids in April, the project was awarded to R.D. Lawrence in May 2017. Demolition work was started in late May. Work is scheduled to be completed in May 2018.
