F.H. Paschen is a national general contractor, construction manager, and design-builder headquartered in Chicago. Recently ranked #126 in ENR’s yearly national rankings, Paschen works in just about every sector within the industry. Those familiar with Chicago have seen Paschen’s work up close with the new pedestrian bridge across Lake Shore Drive at 41stt Street, which was recently named ENR’s National Project of the Year.
Jeff Lycett is the owner and lead carpenter behind Evryman Wood, a custom carpentry and trim business taking on projects of all sizes throughout the Chicago area. Jeff has been in the field for over 25 years—from project managing high-end construction in New York City to custom carpentry projects in Colorado and Chicago. But simply dipping into his work in building beautiful handrails, kitchens, and built-ins doesn’t paint the true picture of Jeff. It’s his philosophy and business model—and his deep commitment to community—that truly speak to his mission.
