Paving a Path to the Future

Last night, on behalf of the Chicagoland AGC and McHugh Construction, Mike Meagher spoke about the commitment McHugh, Magellan Development, Related Midwest, Sterling Bay and others have made to foster opportunities for those in disadvantaged communities. The fundraiser raised money to offer lines of credit to help women- and minority-owned firms compete for work. As Rasheed Davis stated in his opening remarks, “something big and transformative is about to happen in our city,” and we could not be more proud to be a part of this initiative.
