Throughout the years Bonus Electric has been diligent in developing relationships with every professional organization in the industry. These relationships have been forged from our honesty, integrity, professionalism and quality of workmanship. Our great relationships with IBEW, NECA, City of Chicago and the surrounding municipalities have given us an additional unique company asset. We have the ability to gather our many unique assets on each and every project at the benefit of the owner. Bonus Electric is a full service electrical engineering and construction company.


Bonus Electric proudly boasts a full service engineering division with Illinois state licensed engineers on staff, and the ability to stamp our own drawings. Our clients have the assurance and comfort that is provided by the fact that we aren't just paying a licensed engineer from another company who is completely unfamiliar to the project to stamp our drawings.
Whether the desired end result is code analysis, budget pricing, guaranteed maximum pricing, permit documents, design-bid-build documents or design-build documents, we can supply all of your design needs. We are continuously adapting our services and capabilities to meet the needs and requirements of our clients.
Bonus Electric always carries its own E&O and Professional Liability insurances to provide our clients with the highest levels of protection in the industry.


This is currently the fastest developing project delivery method in the industry. With the right team (MEP/FP & Architect) on board from the beginning, design-build offers the fastest, most efficient, most change order prohibitive and least problematic method available to an owner. It offers a single source of responsibility. No other delivery method can compare to this fast-track, turnkey approach in relation to speed, efficiency and cost control.
Pre-Construction and BIM Header Image


We are extremely versatile and are available for involvement at many levels of a project. Early in a project’s development we can assist ownership in determining a budget and then producing an extremely detailed scope that shall meet that budget. We provide value engineering services to evaluate design concepts and specifications for possible cost reductions. Our years of experience and project histories have enabled us with the knowledge and expertise to provide the owner with a list of possible options which can reduce cost without sacrificing function.
Whether the project is determined to proceed on a design-build basis or a design-bid-build basis, Bonus Electric shall complete the drawing documents and specifications within the budget and scope parameters. Similarly, if the project proceeds on a design-bid-build basis, Bonus Electric can be there to assist the engineer of record in maintaining the original scope.

We never turn our back on previous clients.
