A group of employees from SOM’s Chicago office helped build homes for Habitat for Humanity as part of the recent “Raise Your Hand Chicagoland” event.

Over four days, volunteers constructed frames for 12 homes in Pioneer Court, a public space backdropped by the SOM-designed Equitable Building. Mayor Rahm Emanuel helped kick off the event and teammates from the Chicago Bears pitched in to support the effort.
