Joseph Krusinski

The Chicago Building Congress recently bestowed its 2010 Award of Honor upon Joseph Krusinski, chief executive officer of Oak Brook-based Krusinski Construction Company, in a ceremony at the Union League Club in Chicago.

Krusinski’s career in construction began more than 50 years ago. While accepting the award, Krusinski fondly remembered some of his early experiences working on industrial projects for his father and his uncle. Most of his early tasks revolved around manual labor on warehouse floors, but the environment appealed to him.

“It got into my blood,” said Krusinski. “I knew what my life’s work would be.”

In 1969, Krusinski graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a bachelor’s in architecture. Not long after, Krusinski set out on his own and founded Krusinski Construction Company in 1973. The firm would go on to build millions of square feet of commercial space, including the 1.2 million-square-foot Westbrook Corporate Center in Westchester.

Krusinski thanked his numerous family members and business associates in attendance.

“It’s been a long road since 1973,” said Krusinski. “I accept this award on behalf of all of the owners, developers, and clients who put their trust in us.”

The Award of Honor is a lifetime achievement award that is voted on by the members of the CBC. Recipients of this award in the past include: Robert Wislow of U.S. Equities Realty, LLC; Melvin Gray of Graycor; and Richard Pepper of Pepper Construction Company.
