Queen Anne Exterior and Interior

Queen Anne Interior Renovation

This 6,000 sq ft “Orange Listed” Chicago Landmark mansion in Wicker Park has been gutted, altered, and segmented so many times over its 120+ year life that the original interior has been destroyed. HAG was requested to reunite the disparate interior and the beautiful Queen Anne exterior to create a comfortable, classic single family home.

Twin High‐Rise Sundeck Renovations & Roof Replacements

HAG has completed designs and budgeted the replacement of resident‐occupied decks, associated lighting, railings, rooftop maintenance equipment, insulation and failing roof materials for this 28‐story, 640 unit building. The project also includes recreating mid‐century (built 1960) ventilated block walls for the penthouse, which screen unsightly mechanical equipment.

Ongoing Brick Masonry & Exterior Insulated Finish System Mitigation Repairs for Ashburn Baptist Church, Orland Park

Built circa 1990, this church has been plagued with a variety of interior water damage. After a close visual inspection of the exterior and a review of a few targeted construction openings, HAG prepared a condition assessment report of our findings. Phased exterior mitigation repairs, started in 2013, will conclude in 2014.
