Plote Construction continues to lead the way in the Chicagoland area as a top excavating contractor. Of our many areas of expertise, earth moving remains an integral part to our continuing success. As an excavating company, we host a vast cliental of both private and public owners including Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), Illinois State Toll Highway Authority (ISTHA), City of Chicago and a variety of Counties, Villages and Municipalities.



As part of our ever growing fleet, Plote Construction maintains a selection of heavy earth moving equipment including backhoes, dozers, loaders, portable crushers, off road trucks, scrapers, compactors, water trucks, tractor trailers and lowboys that range in size and capacity. Regardless of the project’s scope, Plote has the excavating resources to perform the tasks required to deliver a successful project, on time, with guaranteed satisfaction.



Plote Construction always utilizes the newest GPS grading technologies on all of our excavation sites. Most of Plote’s heavy equipment is equipped with computer guided GPS grading systems that have highly accurate 3D Models of the site’s plans. These 3D models allow the operators to grade with accurate precision anywhere on the site without the use of stakes and excess surveying. This is beneficial to our customers because it saves much time and money, allowing projects to stay on schedule and under budget.

Plote Construction maintains a trained, certified staff of Quality Control personnel ensuring quality in our excavating operations. Quality Control personnel are trained to interpret the contract documents and certify that the work being performed conforms to all aspects and specifications as detailed in the contract documents. Quality Control staff works daily with Plote Project Managers, Superintendents and Subcontracts to deliver a contract that exceeds the Owner’s expectations and guarantees compliance and satisfaction.
