OUR VALUES DRIVE YOUR RESULTS.
BEFORE ALL ELSE, SAFETY FIRST.
Plote Construction, Northern Illinois’ premier Excavating, Asphalt Paving and Concrete Contractor, is committed to conducting construction operations in the safest manner possible. With an industry leading safety record, and a thorough safety program, Plote demonstrates this deep commitment and dedication to safety. Our motto is, “Everyone goes home, every night!”. We kick off every construction season with an “All hands on deck” safety breakfast where we cover important safety issues and refresh everyone on our first priority: Safety. See below for more highlights of our safety program.
FROM TOLLWAYS TO NEIGHBORHOODS.
“Where the rubber meets the road…” – The true testament to our deep resources of equipment and talent lie in the successful completion of a job.
Plote Construction continues to embrace technology and innovation in order to increase our effectiveness and efficiency. Here are just a few examples:
Stringless PavingWatch as the Plote Construction crew uses Topcon systems to pave concrete at a new taxiway at one of the world’s busiest airports. Topcon’s Millimeter GPS and LPS make the job faster, easier, and more profitable.

Drone TechnologyPlote Construction is always at the forefront of technology, which is why we have a drone to help us track job progress, production, and efficiency. The drone technology allows us to monitor our entire jobsite with one flight. Our drone provides real time photos, videos, and 3D models of our excavating, concrete and asphalt paving jobsites.
CAT D6N IntegratedPlote was the FIRST IN THE WORLD, and hand selected by CAT, to own a D6N dozer with integrated GPS.
This integrated dozer is without any external GPS parts or wires and has special software that knows everything about the dozer, enabling our excavating crews to run at maximum efficiency on the jobsite.
Clean Diesel ProjectAlways looking for ways to add efficiencies, Plote partnered with Patten CAT to rebuild 3 aging 980G wheel loaders resulting in 50% reduction in NOX emissions and 54% reduction in particulate matter.
3D Models3D modeling allows Plote to create the job on a computer before any excavating, asphalt or concrete paving begins. This allows us to be proactive in recognizing problems before they happen, resulting in time, production and cost savings.
Quality ControlPlote owns and operates 9 testing labs employing over 40 state certified technicians and environmental staff. Led by professional engineers, their unique material designs include the use of over 1 million tons of recycled material; including recycled asphalt, concrete, roofing shingles and stone.
IN OUR WORLD, FAMILY IS TEAM.
While Plote Construction brings countless resources to a job, our true strength begins and ends with our people.
