Working with Wegman Construction on the building of the Richard & Gina Santori Public Library of Aurora was a fantastic experience. The crew from the top down were consistently professional, punctual, and within budget. We experienced no issues with OSHA and no incidents of any kind during the course of the build. This group of people worked as a team and truly cared about doing the best job they could do in delivering a product above and beyond expectations. They also contributed personally to the project by using their talent to add special elements throughout the library and the garden. I wholeheartedly endorse Wegman Construction.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of Fox Valley United Way, I wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for the outstanding work your crew did at our office and for your generous in-kind donation that helped make it possible. As an in-kind sponsor, you play an important role in helping us to successfully meet our annual goals. Perhaps more importantly, your generosity allows us to allocate more of the funds we raise to support critical social service programs by assisting us in lowering our administrative overhead. We can never thank you enough. Chris Wegman, Mark Baum, Joe Barry, Craig Lecour, Lisa Garcia and everyone involved was a delight to work with. You are fortunate to have such solid professional employees. They all represented RCW in the best possible way.
Chief Executive Officer Michael Meyer, Fox Valley Untied Way
I have worked with the team at R.C. Wegman for more than 20 years and I would highly recommend them. At the Fox Valley Park District, we hired R. C. Wegman as our Construction Manager for the following projects: Splash Country Water Park, Prisco Community Center addition, Eola Community Center addition, Vaughn Athletic Center, Administrative Office, Greene Field Park renovation, New Haven Park construction and the new Administration / Maintenance Facility on Illinois Avenue. The outstanding service FVPD received from R.C. Wegman is the reason they have been involved in nearly ever construction project of any size over many years. Their expertise in coordination and delivering a quality project on schedule and on budget is second to none. Their involvement in countless construction projects in the community lead to the vast majority of the subcontractors being local businesses which provides for a great sharing of pride in the project from the craftsman to the small business owners.

Throughout the construction of Fire Station Ten, R.C. Wegman Construction Company demonstrated their commitment to providing a quality building, paying close attention to detail while coordinating all aspects of the work. They displayed a high level of integrity exhibited by great workmanship, reliability, and professionalism. Their constant contact and updates throughout the process were greatly appreciated and reassured the Fire Department that we had chosen the best company for the project. Dan Peterson and Bill Arnold were never to busy to accommodate our requests. Under their leadership, nothing we less than superior. All of the contractor’s workspaces were always clean and organized. R.C. Wegman is a construction company that genuinely cares about the customer’s satisfaction. Not only did we value their extensive professional ability, they also earned our confidence and trust during the entire project. i enjoyed the staff’s engaging personalities and always positive attitudes. I would not hesitate to recommend them for future projects.
Division Chief Mark Ziemnik, Naperville Fire Department
Starting with the original riverboat construction in 1992, nearly all the major projects completed by Hollywood Casino Aurora have been managed by R.C. Wegman. in our experience, R.C. Wegmna’s staff was able to meet our unique challenges and demands associated with these projects, especially those alongside our Fox River banks. They showed concern for the site and environmental matters and managed the delicate interface requirements of multiple government entities including the Army Corps of Engineers, the CoastGuard, Fox Metro, and Kane DuPage drainage. In addition, R.C. Wegman is extremely proactive with on-site safety for all personnel. We have found the contractors selected to work on our projects more than capable and well supervised. Our weekly construction meetings were a source of valuable input and guidance. In the end, Hollywood’s projects have been completed on time and within budget. Aurora is very fortunate to have a company with the talent and expertise of R.C. Wegman based right here in our community.

Over the years, R.C. Wegman has constructed numerous state-of-the-art facilities in Aurora and their commitment to dependability, integrity, and quality is second to none. Utilizing R.C. Wegman will insure that local contractors and local trade people will be involved. It is without reservation that I recommend and endorse R.C. Wegman.
Linda Chapa LaVia, State Representative, 83rd District
All too often, recognition of commendable and excellent business practices goes unnoticed upon the completion of a project. R.C. Wegman’s degree of professionalism is a solid reflection of their leadership. Their commitment to hire Local Union Trade Contractors has been a driving force in the local building economy for the past 55 years. R.C. Wegman also has an outstanding reputation with our trade contractors for the health and safety of each and every worker on their projects R.C. Wegman Construction Company truly has the knowledge of the community and the Building Trades. Pride and a cooperative spirit exist on this team. The Fox Valley Building Trades Council highly recommend R.C. Wegman, a firm that stands for integrity and their professionalism is “Second to None.”

Hessed House has worked with Wegman for over two decades on a variety of projects. They did almost all of the major construction projects, including our original building (converting a city incinerator into the state’s second largest homeless shelter over multiple phases) and our new comprehensive resource center (converting a rubber manufacturing facility into a multi-discipline service center for homeless families and individuals). Two factors have put Wegman ahead of the rest for us: quality and ethical dealings. Wegman doesn’t cut corners. Period. Every project that they have ever done for us has withstood years of ultra-abuse from us. Every project where we have tried to save a few dollars by going with an inferior contractor, the consequences have been obvious within a few years. I cannot overemphasize this point. As a faith-based organization, it is important for us to work with ethical organizations. Wegman has always demonstrated the highest level of integrity, which is – unfortunately – rare amongst general contractors and design-build contractors.

Our department recently worked with R.C. Wegman on the construction of our new Fire Station #8. This was the fourth fire station that R.C. Wegman built for the City of Aurora. While looking out for the best interests of the City, they provided a level of service that exceeded our expectations. The previous City of Aurora fire stations built by R.C. Wegman have all come in on time and within budget. After completion of these buildings, we continued to receive a high quality of service addressing any needs or issues in a timely fashion.
Timothy Oelker, Fire Chief, Aurora Fire Department
R.C. Wegman has worked on numerous park development and redevelopment projects for the Fox Valley Park District, including recently completing the renovation of our new Administration and Park Operations Headquarters. R.C. Wegman has produced a product for all of these projects that has met or exceed the high standards that the Fox Valley Park District sets for all that we do. Whether it is a small park redevelopment such as Copley II Park, a larger park development project like New Haven Park or the aforementioned Cole Center Administration, Park Operations and Natural Resources Building, R.C. Wegman have been on time, within budget, responsive and very professional on all of their projects with us.
