Ashlaur began with the relentless determination and vision of our founder and CEO, Zollie Carradine. As a young apprentice, he had an intense resolve to master the construction industry inside out. Zollie used all of his free time to pursue his dream, and decades later, he owns one of the most successful construction companies in the area. In addition, Zollie has been very intentional about paving the way for those following in his footsteps. He gives back by mentoring the up and coming entrepreneurs hoping to create their own path in this industry. Today, Ashlaur Construction is one of Chicago’s premier MBE/DBE construction companies with an irrefutable history of excellence. Over the last 30 years, we’ve worked on thousands of projects in both the Subcontractor and General Contractor capacities, and we’re proud to serve Chicagoland.
