The National Public Museum is dedicated to being the cultural institution that tells the story of public housing in the United States. Its mission is to preserve, promote and propel the right people to a place where they can live and prosper and call home.

The National Public Health Museum is relocating to 1322 W Taylor Street Chicago Illinois from its present location of 625 N. Kingsbury St. Chicago, Illinois

This project has been in the works for over 15 years and broke ground last fall of 2022.The site is scheduled to open late 2023 with 15 mixed income apartments and a museum which will feature future exhibits of the life in the Public Housing Systems as it was and how it has evolved.

Francis Construction Group has been originally contracted by GMA (General Contractor) to perform earthworks, site utilities and storm water systems. Additionally, Francis is performing select interior demolition, metal stud framing, and drywall.




Interior demolition of this future new housing museum and residences included demolition of full building steel stairs, an 8” thick suspended structural slab, masonry and partition walls.


With our own heavy equipment, Francis excavated around the perimeter of the building for new drain tile as well as excavation for site utilities, new foundation and footings
