About Us

With over 55 years experience, Alco Construction Co. has consistently maintained a reputation for high-quality new home construction and remodeling in Chicago from clients and peers.

Abram Szwajger founded Alco Construction Co. in 1963. Abram’s original mission was to bring his European craftsmanship and individualized service to clients in Chicago. Abram’s vision and standards have been passed down to a third generation of family ownership, run by daughter Yolanda Schachter and grandson, Lyle Schachter.

In addition to new home construction, renovation, and re-modeling, Alco Construction Co. is a trusted Contractor with the City of Chicago, and has been working with the Department of Housing for the past 30 years. Our other clients include the Salvation Army, the Archdiocese of Chicago, and Catholic Charities. We have built and remodeled schools, churches, commercial office buildings, personal dwellings, and meeting centers.
