Women and the Redevelopment of Willis Tower

Talented women team members to discuss their roles in the massive redevelopment of Chicago’s iconic building.

Maggie McNamara will be featured on an upcoming panel sponsored by Women of Willis – a networking group created to empower, elevate, and connect the women working in the Willis Tower – discussing the integral roles women have played in the Tower’s $500 million redevelopment.

Encompassing 500,000 square feet, the repositioning of Willis Tower is one of the most challenging mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) projects of its kind in the United States. The modernization project creates a new retail and visitor experience center – featuring a host of food and beverage tenants at the podium – while maintaining security for tenants, all in an effort to make the building more valuable for the owner.

The Women of Willis Tower Talk will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, March 9 at 4 p.m. CT. McNamara will be sharing her views on the massive transformation of one of Chicago’s landmark structures.
