Bowa construction has been added for the O’Hare 21 project. Clayco and AECOM Hunt have announced that minority contractor Bowa Constructions joins its joint venture team providing construction management services for the O’Hare 21 Project. Bowa is excited about the partnership with AECOM Hunt and Clayco.

“We are very excited about this partnership with AECOM Hunt and Clayco on the transformation of O’Hare,” Bowa’s president and CEO Nosa Ehimwenman said in a statement. “The O’Hare 21 Project is giving our organization the platform to extend our aviation expertise in a significant way. This opportunity is also a clear representation of equity, alliance, experience, and inclusion, which are driving forces behind this partnership.”

The groups collaborated for months. The statement says Bowa’s addition strengthens the joint venture through its previous experience at O’Hare, ties to the local community, and work developing logistics and phasing for operational airport facilities. Jason Kopp, Central Region Chief Operating Officer, AECOM Hunt said, “We’re extremely proud to work alongside Clayco and Bowa to play a role in the transformation of O’Hare into an international hub primed to meet the needs of the 21st century,”

They were named one of the 2018 Fortune 100 Fastest-Growing Inner-City Companies. In O’Hare International Airport’s 60-year history, the $8.5 billion O’Hare 21 Project is the biggest expansion effort.
