  • I have worked with Paramount for the construction of our last three projects which include the build out of both restaurant and retail concepts in multiple locations. I am proud of the thoughtfulness, commitment and quality of work Paramount has demonstrated through the entire process from start to finish. All three projects were delivered on time and within budget and their uncompromising attention to detail was refreshing.

  • We selected Paramount Construction to be our general contractor for the construction of our new Salon & Spa concept in downtown Naperville. Their focus on quality, budget, and timeliness was excellent. They stood behind their work and were willing to do whatever it takes to ensure a quality product. I’m happy to give my highest recommendations to their team for any future projects.

  • I had a great deal of confidence while working with Jim Young from Paramount Construction on the building of our new events venue, Elements of Water Street. Occupying the entire 2nd floor of Hotel Indigo Naperville Riverwalk, Elements ballroom was a construction focal point with 250 seating availability. Our project included a large pre-reception lounge, custom meeting space for100 guests, and a state of the art commercial kitchen to accommodate the dining needs of all events. This project was extremely complex due to the multi uses of our 5-story building but Jim and his team worked tirelessly to ensure the project came in on time and on budget. Jim’s attention to detail and delegation to hold other contractors accountable was extraordinary. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product and we get rave reviews every day. We are thankful for the partnership with Paramount and hope to work again with Jim for years to come.
