Project New Leaf, funded by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, is a five-year multi-phase revitalization effort aimed at delivering a superior guest experience for Cantigny’s nearly 400,000 annual visitors and ensuring the park’s vitality for future generations.
Phase 1 improvements have been completed and include;
Featherstone has successfully managed complex planning, budget estimating, bidding, value engineering, construction management and daily oversight for the project. Particularly important was our desire to keep the park open to visitors during the entire construction process; we needed a partner who would help us manage this challenging aspect of the project. Through detailed preparations, weekly meetings and daily on-site presence, Featherstone has provided a safe and clean worksite, allowing us to maintain public access to the park and to host our usual high volume of special events. Importantly, Project New Leaf is on time and within budget. This speaks well for Featherstone’s level of planning and management expertise. I highly recommend Featherstone as a partner in any construction project and would not hesitate to use their services in the future.Mr. Matt LaFond, Executive Director, Cantigny Park
