Projects & Experience

General Services Administration: Vistara serves as the Owners Construction Representative (OCR) and as the Construction Quality Manager (CQM) through an IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity) contract. We have established a quality relationship since 1997 when we worked on the construction of the Hammond Federal Courthouse. Vistara received a Construction Excellence Award in 2005 in recognition of its work on the US Customs House renovation. Current projects include the renovation of the Federal Center Plaza and the interior renovations to the EM Dirksen Federal Courthouse in Chicago.

Chicago Public Schools: Vistara has performed Project Management Services for the Public Building Commission and Chicago Public Schools since 1994. We have served as the Owner’s Representative during the construction of new schools at Albany Park, McNair and Field Elementary schools which included on-site representation from pre-construction through close-out.

We have also completed the renovation and construction of the new addition at Namaste Charter School as an Owner’s Representative. Further, Vistara has estimated construction costs in excess of $500 million for a variety of projects– Sauganash Elementary, Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep, Little Village Library and Brighton Park Elementary School.
