Before we Build Anything, We Build Relationships

A total focus on customer priorities and needs is the key to our mutual success. At Performance Services, we dedicate time to know owner aspirations and challenges. Only then do we put forward design solutions. Our team brings an integrated approach including engineered design, project management, building automation controls, and performance assurance. We value long-term relationships and are in the for the long haul.

Deferred Maintenance Solutions

We work with owners to find solutions to tough problems. Every project starts with the end in mind, with the owner's desired outcome guiding our work. We know high-performing buildings are more cost effective to operate over time, so that's our focus provided with performance guarantees. With our integrated approach, there are no gaps between design and construction, so the outcome is predictable. We'll cross the finish line together, knowing you're getting exactly what you want and need from your project.

How We Deliver


Effective Process

Our integrated design and construction process includes a holistic needs assessment, detailed engineering, open-book pricing, owner preferred subcontractors, a 'no change orders' guarantee, and singular accountability for results.



Illinois customers can expect these results when working with Performance Services, including on-time delivery, vendor independence, optimal environments, and performance guarantees.



Performance Services has built a reputation on an unwavering commitment to serving our customers. Our team strives for customer satisfaction on a daily basis. From the first owner meeting to the completion of the project and throughout the guarantee, we stand behind our work and with our customers.


Sole accountability

Performance Services believes in shaking hands, not pointing fingers. Unlike traditional approaches, where the customer has to manage different contracts and contractors, all Performance Services projects have just one contract with the owner and we manage every aspect of the project. Our customers have total project control through just one touch point: Performance Services. Regardless of the issue raised, we will never point fingers or shift responsibility. We will work until the issue is resolved. That’s how we do things.


Illinois Projects


Architects are experts at design. Construction managers are experts at building buildings. Glenbard Schools wanted an expert to address a $34 million renovation of our HVAC electrical and plumbing systems. Performance Services fit that role to a tee providing design, installation, and performance guarantees. Through their Open Book Pricing, we were assured of getting competitive pricing on all project costs.
