R.M. Chin & Associates, Inc. (R.M. Chin) had the honor of receiving the 2019 CMAA Chicago Chapter Project Award in the Buildings category for the CRRC Sifang America Rail Car Manufacturing Facility.

The entire project team did an excellent job of collaborating in this fast-paced construction environment.
