ABOUT

ACCEND may be a new name in the Chicago construction market, but our leaders are deep-rooted, well-versed veterans of the industry.

There’s a new player in town.

Established in 2019, ACCEND is equally committed to three founding principles:

  1. Providing employees with a fulfilling and stable career as an employee owned company.
  2. Providing clients with the optimal construction experience.
  3. Making everyone and everything better.

ACCEND looks at construction from a different lens.  We consider all data points and human factors to tailor an optimized approach to each project and situation.  We provide considerate leadership, clear communication, efficient planning, a hungry and energized team with one common theme: Get it done, better. ACCEND.

Meet Our President

Over the past 20 years, Andy MacGregor has established a name for himself in the Chicago construction market, building some of the region’s largest, most complex and creative tech spaces.  He is known for changing the pace and expectation of projects by executing on a very fast, very precise timeline.

Andy was formerly a partner at a construction company where he helped grow the firm from approximately $40 – $400 million before partnering with Skyline Construction to open ACCEND in Chicago.

As President of ACCEND, Andy is responsible for leading all aspects of the business including project execution, employee recruitment and retention, client satisfaction and long range planning.  He is a straightforward leader, an upfront planner, a true collaborator and out-of-the-box thinker.
