It was definitely not a case of “one if by land, two if by sea.” Instead, when it came time to deliver and install the 32-foot-high glass panels for the new Apple flagship store façade in Chicago, it was bring it by barge up the Chicago River. The panels were not just dropped off at […]

The first part of the renovation didn’t make the tenants happy, and Gabriel Dilworth could understand. After all, nobody appreciates their views being blocked by tarp.

Admittedly, the project at the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital in Hines, Illinois, was not your standard chiller replacement and proved to be very challenging in many respects.
