“From the responsibilities we accept
with the projects we construct; our goal
is to build a healthy place in our world.”
- Leon LaJeunesse, Founder
As builders of healthcare facilities, Custom Contracting keeps practitioners, patients, and their loved ones in mind as we strive to promote well-being in our community.
For more than three decades our industry experience, knowledge, creativity, and resourcefulness have advanced an understanding of the ways the healthcare environment impacts successful patient outcomes – both during and after construction.
We draw on industry best-practices; integrating continuous improvement for the leading health care providers across our region.
We help you keep pace in the rapidly evolving healthcare environment with facility improvements that advance patient care and satisfaction.
Some of our earliest projects included "cleanrooms" for industrial production and scientific research. Cleanrooms are designed and built to maintain extremely low levels of particulates, like dust, airborne organisms, and vaporized particles that are counted as particles per cubic meter at the molecular level.
To anticipate and mitigate the risk of infection during construction, Custom Contracting strictly adheres to Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) standards to promote robust communication and cooperation that ensures healthy outcomes.
Custom Contracting founder Leon LaJeunesse was an inaugural member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in Chicago (currently known as the "The Illinois Green Alliance") to advance environmentally friendly building solutions.
Mr. LaJeunesse was also among core members who developed the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) Chicago Community of Practice (CoP) to enhance collaboration, increase schedule certainty, maximize budgets, and drive value on every project.
