Commercial Remodeling In Chicago

Having built strong relationships with suppliers and building management in Chicago’s downtown high rises for 19 years, Areté has been able to grow into the commercial remodeling space. Our commercial construction experience spans from updating storefronts, build-out of mixed-use residential buildings, and updating condominium lobbies, hallways, and common areas.

Commercial projects tend to move more quickly, require greater oversite of restrictions and code, and an eye for commercial design and material selection.

  • Storefronts – we have completed a variety of storefront updates including glass replacement, tuckpointing up to full exterior façade, and lighting updates
  • Condominium Lobbies and Common Areas – with a specialty in high-rise remodeling, we have completed several condominium projects including painting and floor replacement in common stairwells, mailroom, and entryways as well as full lobby renovations and build-out with the addition of office space, package receiving, and entry vestibule.
  • Mixed-Use – Areté’s first mixed-use commercial build-out was our very own showroom and design center. Over the last five years, we have taken on several projects of similar scope to help clients create their ideal business space. We have completed retrofitting projects up to full interior demo and build-out.

Our commercial clients in Chicago receive the same level of service and real-time communication as our residential clients by the assignment of a dedicated project coordinator. The project coordinator facilitates all permitting, inspections, oversight of trades and installation crews, schedules updates and sees that progress photos are sent to the client daily, and ensuring a safe working environment.

Areté’s design team can help source durable and commercial grade finishes without compromising functionality and style. Our unique network of suppliers allows us to have access to a vast array of design styles and options to achieve the exact look and feel you are going for.  Contact us today at 773.683.3033 to discuss your unique project with a seasoned professional.
