Featured Projects

Commercial/High Rise Renovation
At 720 W Gordon, our team worked closely with the masonry contractor to coordinate simultaneous projects to minimize the inconvenience to residents.

At 3180 N Lake Shore Drive, our installers  replaced all of the building’s windows with thermally-isolated frames, glazed with 1” insulating glass with a low-emissivity coating.

The execution of the project occurred on time and on budget. After completion of this work, the building’s exterior was renewed, with a 10 year performance warranty.

At Hazelgreen Elementary School, our crew removed all existing windows and window-wall sections, modified brick and limestone openings, installed new aluminum windows and window-wall units, and installed new automated window blinds. 

All work was completed, as scheduled, in 15 working days.

High-End Residential
In 2003, noted architect Helmut Jahn designed a living space and work studio in suburban St. Charles, IL.  Mr. Jahn repurposed a 120’ long barn and called for Crittall Steel pivot windows to be fitted across the long elevations of the structure.

On the lower level where the swimming pool was located,  Crittall Steel casement and door units were utilized to provide easy access to the exterior patio areas.

Most spectacularly, a sloped glazing sky-light was erected in the barn roof from end to end, enveloping the upper level work space in glorious natural light. Remotely controlled motorized operators allowed units to vent to the exterior and let in plenty of fresh air. The resulting property is a remarkable mix of function and form.
