Partnership – no word better describes the relationship between Trinidad Construction and Nicor/Southern Company Gas.  It all started in 2011, when Nicor’s amazing supplier diversity department launched an outreach event, seeking contractors for a small industrial project in the gas storage fields of Central Illinois.   Trinidad had not yet worked for Nicor, and had only completed a few projects in total, at the time.  Nicor was willing to listen, and Trinidad was able to provide a solution.   This was one of many “firsts” that Nicor has given to Trinidad.   This job led to three years of Trinidad executing numerous industrial projects, in hyper-sensitive areas, with incredible safety measures in place.  Trinidad became a Master Service Contractor for Nicor.

In 2014 Nicor invited Trinidad to a Diverse Contractor outreach event.  One year later, we renovated the entire building in which the event was held.   Over the following 18 months, Trinidad executed a number of high profile remodels: A full call center remodel, the renovation of an entire level of the Corporate Headquarters, and culminated with the construction of a new, out of the ground, State of the Art, Technical Training Center for Nicor Gas, in Naperville, IL.

Since that time, Trinidad continues to be the go to contractor for Nicor Gas.   The partnership/mentorship that Trinidad has received as a supplier for Nicor, has allowed us to become the Midwest’s leader in Utility Industry Construction.   Some account highlights include:

  • 10 years of Zero-Incident Safety
  • Construction of a New Technical Training Center in Naperville, IL
  • Construction of a New 22,000 ft2 Reporting Center, with Four Out-Buildings in Sycamore, IL
