The News-Gazette reported on February 5th, 2019 that a new “Culver’s is coming to the long-vacant lot at the southwest corner of University Avenue and Race Street” in Urbana Illinois. This Culver’s franchise now sits at that very site of 201 W. University Avenue. ECI Construction Services (ECI) as the General Contractor constructed this 1.5 million dollar restaurant.

The city of Urbana possesses one of the most diverse urban forests in the Midwest. They are proud of these very unique, rare, and historic species of trees that are protected by the City’s Legacy Tree Program. EIC was charged with the task of preserving one of these prized trees and incorporating it into the framework of the project.

This project achieved zero recordable incidents, was able to achieve profitability while maintaining public safety, and stringent franchise guidelines.
