Chicago, IL-25 August 2017- Last Friday, The Bowa Group received the prestigious Metra DBE Prime Contractor of the Year award for 2017 at the Metra Office of Diversity and Civil Rights. The award recognizes a Prime contractor that not only holds an esteemed reputation within the industry, but demonstrates a commitment to business development with the spirit of DBE professionalism.

Qualifications for the award stemmed from renovations The Bowa Group performed earlier in 2015. Bowa provided services for Metra’s 53rd street station, located in Chicago’s Hyde Park area, and successfully completed the project under budget and with no accidents. Thanks to the lucrative outcome of the project, Bowa was awarded the contract to renovate the Metra’s Hazel Crest Station.

CEO Nosa Ehimwenman accepted the award on behalf of The Bowa Group, and was accompanied by Bowa’s V.P. & Operations Manager, Billy Parker. “This was won out of a group effort,” said Ehimwenman. “We wouldn’t have been recognized if it wasn’t for the dedication of our employees and their commitment to service.”

Chicago, IL-July 17, 2017- Last week, The Bowa Group completed the new Starbucks located in Terminal 2 of O’Hare International Airport. The project, which began in April, is one of Bowa’s first projects to be completed in the aviation space, a field where they hope to continue to thrive.

“We’re relatively new to aviation,” said Bowa CEO Nosa Ehimwenman. “It’s certainly a new and exciting challenge, and we’re certainly looking forward to seeing what other projects we can conquer in the future.”

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the team, Bowa proudly finished the project two weeks ahead of schedule, meaning weary travelers can enjoy their caffeine for their early morning flights sooner than expected. “We stayed on budget and navigated O’Hare’s regulations with ease,” said Ehimwenman. “I think the fast paced aviation field suites us well.”

Chicago, IL-July 11, 2017- This Wednesday, Sorority Alpha Kappa Delta and The Bowa Group celebrated the completion of the Ivy Center National Headquarters on the South Side of Chicago with a ceremonial key exchange in Las Vegas with the organization’s President and Board of Directors.

The sorority has long been a haven for young minority women and a source for powerful sisterhood since its founding at Howard University in 1908, calling Chicago their headquarters since 1949. After outgrowing several different locations over the years, AKA has resided on South Stony Island Avenue since 1984, a stone’s throw away from The University of Chicago. As the sorority’s membership continues to grow, the headquarters, too, required some updates and renovations to accommodate demands.

AKA selected the South Side-based Bowa Group to conduct the renovations, and have expressed their satisfaction with the finished product. Not only have the renovations been on schedule throughout the process, but the 32,000 SF of work was proudly performed under budget.

CEO, Nosa Ehimwenman represented The Bowa Group at the ceremony and expressed his enthusiasm for the opportunity to recognize the hard work behind the renovations and strong working partnership that grew with AKA over the course of the project. “It’s such an iconic building on the South Side,” said Ehimwenman, “and these women do a wonderful job upholding the rich history.”
