Mission & Vision


The Public Building Commission is committed to client service and strong stewardship of public resources. The PBC plans, designs and builds facilities that reflect the highest standards of environmental and economic sustainability.


The vision of the Public Building Commission is a built environment in which function, beauty and sustainability are inherent to every community; where physical surroundings inspire and support achievement of the individual goals of those who live, work and visit Chicago and Cook County; and, where people gather to share the common values that truly build our communities.
