Construction is about to begin on the Fraternity House. After a few weeks of drawing plans, Ellipsis architects put us in contact with Quaker Windows and Doors. Quaker is going to create custom modern energy efficient windows to replace the old, dilapidated windows. For those concerned about historical authenticity, Quaker is designing the windows to meet the specifications of the Landmarks department in the City of Chicago. 


We have contracted with Highland Developers to oversee the exterior project. The project has been broken into exterior and interior because of the City of Chicago's permitting process. The exterior permitting can be expedited due to easy review procedures if it is separate from the interior. The exterior permits have been submitted to the city, and we anticipate that we will have approval around the end of March. Once we have approval, we can begin the masonry and roof repair. Then, as soon as the windows are manufactured, they will be installed.


The cost all of this exterior work is well within our budget. We are still waiting for the final plans for the interior work, which we should get in the next few weeks. Once those plans are complete, we can begin bidding out the rest of the work. When we have numbers on that, we will be able to submit those plans to the city for the permitting process. If the quality of work and costs prove to remain competitive, we hope to continue our relationship with Highland Developers for the interior work. 


If you have any other questions about the project. feel free to contact Rob Tamillow.

Window installation varies depending on the type of window and its size. Now a days people give more importance to the security rather than beauty. So strong and rigid material need to be used.

Incorporating the historical authenticity of the building and replacing older windows with energy efficient ones is a modern innovation that preserves the beauty of the past and mixing it with the modern architecture. It will be an architectural tapestry in the middle of the city. It's a marvelous constructive idea. It's such a sad fate that not every historical building is preserved like this. Some historical buildings are left abandoned and some destroyed to be replaced by new ones.

I recommend fiber- cement siding in building a new home, garage, or if it’s time to replace the ancient, weather-beaten siding on your house.Fiber-cement siding is applied to the exterior of buildings to protect them from the elements.Fiber-cement siding is recommended in all climates, but is ideal for hot, humid regions. No matter how wet it gets, it won’t rot. And because of the cement and sand content, it’s termite-resistant.My Dad works in the construction company, he told me about it.

I was a bit of amazed by how construction workers managed to finish a very high building. Like the one included in the blog, the Highland Developers. The Highland Development Group. According to my research, it specializes in the redevelopment of existing commercial properties. They also have successfully renovated several dilapidated, sparsely occupied properties into thriving centers serving their respective communities. If their quality work would continue, I suppose that they would be able close many deals in the future.

With today's technology, this answer can finally easily be answered. This article will lightly analyze several aspects to educate you on what makes a fence better: cost, longevity, aesthetics and durability.

With the Exterior Construction Contract being signed, I'm hopeful for significant changes being made in there. Especially with the siding because that isn't something which people note carefully.

When your home floods, there are a few quick tips you can follow to make water damage repair faster and easier. If you have never done it before, take an inventory of the items that are on the floor in rooms that have a tendency to flood such as the garage, basement and laundry room. You should make it a habit not to store any items in cardboard boxes on the floor of these rooms and that you know what items you have in areas where they can be damaged by water.

There are a number of important issues to consider when looking for a general contractor. You will obviously want to find a contractor who is best suited for the job, and you will also want to get a good price for quality work. Unfortunately, there are numerous challenges involved in finding a suitable contractor at the right price. In most cases, you will either end up with a general contractor who will charge you an arm and a leg for quality work, or a less than capable contractor who will give you a budget rate. That being said, there is a middle ground between these two extremes, and it is entirely possible to find a reputable contractor who will do a satisfactory job for you at a price you can afford.
