Chicago Architects Reviews

"This is the second time we have used
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
& build services. Last time we used them for our investment property, and now to renovate our home we live in - it was a gut rehab. What I liked the most -
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
really tried to do his best. He listened to our ideas and needs. Communications during the process were fluid, and for us that was very important. We knew what is happening with our project, and
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
is always easy to reach. We did not have any major issues during the construction process - everything seemed to be well organized. I would not say that he is the most cheapest contractor; we compared couple other firms, but the service was so good and the quality also looks outstanding. Since
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
also redesigned our place, he took care of all the design aspects as well. I really think we made a good choice by choosing
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
& build to design and renovate our home.

"Our condo has an unusual floor plan for its living room/dining room space, and we have struggled for years to figure out a layout that was functional and looked nice. We tried at one point with a local designer, and didn't really like what he came up with.
We were incredibly happy with
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
's designs! We offered a reward of $375 (which was what
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
recommended), plus the fee to
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
. We received 9 submissions, and I would say that 7 of them were really great. There were 3 or 4 layouts that would have all worked -- we ended up incorporating a few options together, and going with a design that we would have never come up with ourselves. It looks really great! It was also a fun and interesting process to see all the different versions of our apartment that could be possible.
Although the service is somewhat pricey, I think that it was really worth it for us. We got what I believe to be better ideas through "crowd sourcing" the design than we would have from working with a single designer. Plus, a local designer would have cost more. Finally, we were prepared to buy new furniture if needed. However, we also gave the designers images of other furniture we had available in other rooms that could be incorporated. The design we chose ended up going with uses only existing pieces. So, I think that in the long run we saved a lot of money because we didn't end up buying anything new as we had anticipated. I like a lot of my old furniture much better in its new functional design!
I would definitely use
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
again in the future.

"He designed the porch a couple of years ago and it was built immediately thereafter. His design solved a lot of safety, access and drainage problems. A few weeks ago when I was going to get a license from the City for a completely unrelated use at the building, my records showed that a final inspection had never been called for on the porch. So, I had the iron inspector out and he discovered not only that the construction was subpar, but that the contractor had not even followed
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
's plans. He refused to pass it but said that if I could get a letter from the architect saying that the porch was sound as-built, that would be good enough for him.
I immediately contacted
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
and he immediately swung into action. He explained to me that I needed to get the weld sizes in writing from the contractor, who in turn, needed to get them from the subcontractor who did the steel construction. The contractor was stalling a bit but
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
kept the pressure on. Then
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
did a site visit with a structural engineer who was able to detail all of the problems so that
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
could draw up some plans to retrofit the porch.
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
even went above and beyond the call of duty to take it upon himself to appeal to the contractor to rectify the situation. I wasn't even going to ask them because I thought I'd have to practically
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
them to get them to admit any wrong-doing and I didn't feel like having that kind of conflict in my life. Instead, I got a call from the contractor saying that
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
told him about the problem and that he would come out and fix it at his own expense! When does THAT ever happen?! I owe it all to
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
.

Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
was very knowledgeable and helpful from the start. We had a lot of difficulty trying to get a permit with our architect's help.
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
jumped in and did what needed to be done to get the permit in a timely fashion. She knows all of the ins and outs of getting a permit as well as what exactly the city wants to see on the architectural drawings.
We would highly recommend using her to get an expedited permit. If we hadn't already been working with an architect, I would have worked with
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
on our drawings as well.

"We met with several different contractors to remodel our upstairs bathroom. We chose
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
because they were personable and through with the estimate. When the workmen started we had questions and they were very polite and knowledgable. We did have some issues with the dye lot on the tiles because the tile was purchased at different stores (not
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
's fault) but
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
replaced it at no additional cost. The workmen cleaned up every evening before they left the job site. We felt the craftsmanship was superior so we hired them to replace our front inside entry oak staircase and it turned out so well that we asked them to remodel our kitchen and add a bathroom and then reconfigure our laundry area in the basement which included plumbing and electrical. All of the plumbing in the house was replaced while the walls were all open. They also moved and installed a new hot water heater and upgraded our electrical service. We are happy with the work and the customer service the team provided and would highly recommend them.

Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
and his team did a great job in providing the designs for both bathrooms, not an easy task as the main floor remodel called for a 'see through' fish tank feature (as part of the shower wall), as well as some other unique design elements. Following our approval of the design, the construction aspect went extremely well; exceptional quality work (tile, fixtures, flooring, etc.), on time and on budget.
Additionally, we live in an older building, and some of the plumbing aspects were complex. The
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
team was able to solve various challenges to ensure the job was done exactly as promised. The construction crew was very courteous to both us and or neighbors (noise, use of the freight elevator, etc.), and despite the amount of work being done, extremely clean.
I highly recommend
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
for design and remodeling projects.

"I had Design & Build
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
come over on the recommendation of a neighbor. They provided me with multiple options for the redesign of my kitchen, and they provided some ideas for better space usage in my closets. The whole process was easy and interactive. The initial interactions with
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
and
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
were fun and comfortable. The ensuing design process was just the right balance of collaboration and direction. I hire Design & Build
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
because I needed design help and I had confidence that they would provide exactly what I needed...I was not disappointed. The way the whole process works together is amazing. I had the same contact points from the beginning to the end.
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
and
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
were accessible and informative throughout the entire process...contracting, design, construction and close-out. The construction was great in the aspect that the guys were kind and conscientious. They were amazingly detail oriented, and they made a concerted effort to protect the areas of the home that were not under construction. They respected my home as if it were their own.
I would recommend the Design & Build
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
Team to anyone and everyone. I believe they exceeded all my expectations.

"The room turned out great. Excellent service and workmanship. Very reliable. Project completed in time frame. Overall great work

"From the very first meeting with
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
we started to see our project come to life. She jumped right in and gathered so many details and was able to provide us with solid information about what we could do with our home. The concept drawings that she supplied were incredible and the best part was how quickly she picked up on the fact that my husband and I had a general idea of what we liked yet needed a push just beyond our comfort to build something we would love.
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
was always able to be reached by phone, email or text and was very responsive with us and our builder. She truly was our advocate on the job site, making sure that everything was done right and the way we wanted it.
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
went above and beyond offering design advice that would help compliment the architecture with lighting especially. As stated previously we hope to someday accomplish phase 2 on our home and when we do we will definately use
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
.

"We ran a competition for 4 weeks. We offered $1200 in prize money (after the amount that went to
Chicago Architects Provider Name Locked
for hosting the competition). We had a total of 8 submissions after 16 designers signed up. Overall experience was great, they were very responsive to questions that we had, and the designs submitted were overall very good. I have seen some people mention that they weren't happy with the results because they couldn't get the plans built or permitted, or whatever. My advice, adjust your expectations. Our winning architect was willing to work with us after the fact, and I'm sure would have been happy to do what was necessary to get the plans to a permit ready state.
That said, our purpose was to get a number of ideas that we would then turn over to a local architect. If I had hired an architect first, and then asked him/her to draw eight different designs with conceptual and dimensions, they would have been happy, and I would have spent every last dime I have for the renovation on architect fees. This worked exactly as we had hoped, if not better.
