Concrete Services

Raffin has been providing concrete services for all of the four generations it has been in business. Our services range from floor infills and pads in high use buildings in downtown Chicago to equipment and pits in industrial manufacturing facilities. The common threads running through all these projects besides the use of concrete is the need for pre-activity planning, attention to construction details and the need for technical expertise. Having been doing these types of projects for over 75 years we have the experience necessary for ensuring the proper approach to planning and details. The experience combined with our training as structural engineers give us the technical expertise our clients rely on. We target niche markets where these attributes are essential to success.

Design Build Services

Design Build relationships are getting more common as building systems get more complicated and construction schedules become more compressed. On these projects, Raffin teams up with one of our architects and/or engineers to work with a client as a team so as to design and build a project that meets the needs of the client in a cost effective manner. This approach is ideal for fast tracking a project by allowing construction to begin as the detailed construction drawings are being phased in.
