Challenges are Opportunities, Hard Work Results in Great Rewards.


Hawthorne Lakes Phase 




Frankfort, Illinois



Carlson provided design build services for phases I, II, III & IV of the Hawthorne Lakes residential development, which included 204 duplex, townhome and condominium units.  The floor plans varied between elevator condominiums, ranch and two-story style homes.

Each of the buildings were constructed utilizing conventional on site build methods with the exception of pre-fabricated wall panels and pre-engineered roof trusses which were fabricated off site and delivered to the project site for erection.  Carlson constructed the entire onsite infrastructure which included mass grading, storm water management, wet & dry utilities, on site roadways, sidewalks, pedestrian trail network street lighting, reconstruction and widening of an off-site collector roadway.  Environmentally sensitive areas including floodplains and wetlands were successfully mitigated.

Coordinating each of the individual units with its custom finishes and options required substantial communication between the interior designers and construction management team on a fast track basis.
