Executive Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Public Building Commission of Chicago’s website. The PBC is a full-service public developer specifically created by Illinois state legislation for the sole purpose of planning, designing, and constructing municipal buildings, including—but not limited to—schools, parks, libraries, police stations and firehouses.

We are proud of the renovated facilities and new modern buildings we have delivered on behalf of our clients. These projects, combined with the direct economic impact they have had on our communities, underscore the true role of public development in making our city and county better places to live work and raise families.

Thank you for visiting the PBC’s website. I hope you will take time to discover all of the excellent work the PBC is doing and the role we play in the development of strong, sustainable communities.
