Kishwaukee College is seeking proposals from qualified Construction Managers to provide pre-

        the amount of $52.6M to expand and renovate the College’s facilities on its main campus in
        Malta, Illinois.

        2        PROJECT DESCRIPTION

        Master Plan, Kishwaukee College intends to implement the following projects:
