George Allen Construction completed their first project in Los Angeles with the construction of Amtrak’s new wheel-truing facility at their LAX yard. This year long, accident and injury free, project required construction of a highly precise concrete pit and pedestal base to support a new, state of the art wheel-truing lathe housed in a new 6,900 sq. ft climate-controlled building, which will create a cleaner, safer, and more productive workspace for the Amtrak workforce.

We are looking for some hard-working, motivated, safety conscious individuals interested in growing their careers in the railroad construction industry.  BS in civil engineering, construction management or equivalent field is necessary for most positions.  We are currently hiring the following individuals in our Mokena, Illinois office:

·      Assistant Project Manager

George Allen Construction is feeding 1,209 people this Thanksgiving and donating 15 turkey and trimmings food baskets to those in need! Earlier this November, GAC office and field employees dug deep into their pockets and donated to the MorningStar Mission Ministries for their Thanksgiving Holiday Basket Drive.  MorningStar Mission Ministries is a non-denominational organization dedicated to relieving the spiritual and physical hunger of the poor. With every gift of $2.48, someone in need in our community will receive a warm meal.

Originally built in 1913, GAC was tasked with restoring the Amtrak train station and replacing the exterior platform, so it complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. GAC is proud to be one of a select group of contractors that have passed the rigorous qualification process and been approved to participate in Amtrak’s ADA Stations Program (ADASP) to make their nationwide network of platforms and train stations ADA-compliant.
