John Balanoff started ICM inc. (an Interior General Contracting Company) in 1978 and ran it with Alison Heilbrunn for 23 years. Based on John’s experiences as project manager for Tishman Midwest, The Galbreath Company and The Lurie Company, he decided that all clients needed an advocate working in their best interest.  In January 2001 John and Alison founded CMC a construction management company.

The two started CMC to:

• Represent clients from concept through move-in
• Prepare realistic budgets and schedules well in advance of a lease being signed
• Competitively bid each discipline of a project
• Bring CMC’s buying power to our clients
• Eliminate all finger pointing
• Ensure that all projects are completed on time and within budget
• Ensure that our clients get full value for every dollar spent
