O’Hare Field, Chicago, IL – John Polzer, past owner of Con-Cor
This was the first recessed lighting job ever completed at O’Hare Field. There were multiple holes drilled at each location, not only to set the lights into the runway but also to recess the lighting and keep them flush with the surface of the concrete runway. This was done in 1972, long before the modern drilling equipment of today was invented. Con-Cor used a converted soil drilling rig to complete the job under budget and ahead of schedule.
