While other kids played with Fisher-Price toolkits, brothers Martin and Samuel Arteaga learned the construction trade firsthand from their dad, joining him on remodeling and property-maintenance jobs. From there, Samuel continued in multi-unit property management and construction, and Martin studied construction management, eventually working on jobs that ranged from expanding the CTA Brown Line to developing Roosevelt Square.
Today, the siblings continue their more than 30 years of construction work through Chicagoland Construction and Property Services. Joined together by a single tool belt, the duo dispatches on jobs to perform construction services ranging from laying tile to installing siding. They also have a special interest in green building, evidenced by their expertise in leading energy audits, designing rooftop gardens, and installing solar panels.
